• Tickit

    From Zazz@VERT/PBSYNC to All on Fri Aug 2 09:30:56 2019
    I just setup tickit. Not to difficult but did run in to a problem. The first one was telling me no password but tic file had password. I checked with the feed and passwords given is what I have. Still same password issue, so I found in Global Options to set IgnorePassword=True. I manually ran tickit and it process the file.

    This morning I see a file in inbound folder and it was not processed so I manually ran it and it processed. I thought tickit was supposed to run automatically when there was a file in the inbound folder.

    So what am I missing?

    I am doing this to help out a downlink using Synchronet and wants me to feed him files. So I do need to get a better handle on this before he gets frustrated.

    If you're also using BinkIT, TickIT must be set up as a Timed Event with an internal code of 'TICKIT'.
    This is true even if you don't intend to run TickIT on a schedule. BinkIT creates/updates the semaphore
    file for that event as needed.

    If you aren't using BinkIT, have your mailer touch the necessary semaphore file (data/tickit.now) when
    files come in. Or wait until TickIT runs at its scheduled time.

    I am using BinkIT and so I went to scfg timed events and creaed one for TickIT. So assuming I didn't botch it, it should run.

    Thanks for info

    When in doubt, use the Wiki. When not in doubt, use the Wiki.

    Right here it shows exactly how to set that event up:

    Yes, thank you, I had that to use as a guide to setting up Tickit. However, there was no timed event setup for Tickit and I had to go to scfg to set that up. I entered info Timed event for Tickit.

    Is there a log where I can see what was processed or rejected? I have not encountered one yet.

    Well, I don't know if you are running on Linux or Windows... If
    Windows I don't know. If Linux, we have to know if you're running
    SBBS as a daemon/service or just starting it from a command line.
    Tickit stuff will be in the same log as other stuff related to
    Synchronet, perhaps /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog. Can't
    really say without more information...

    I don't use Windows but whereever you main logfile is for sbbs, whatever
    logs telnet connections, web stuff, etc. It should all be logged there.

    Maybe you can use findstr for TICKIT and it'll show you the log where it is. You might also have to increase logging level. I use debug so I get
    everything.
