• Crashmail routing - ROUTE and CHANGE

    From rick christian@1:3634/12 to All on Tue Sep 20 21:25:10 2016
    In testing out things.... I seem to be having an issue with routing of NETMAIL.

    In that NETMAIL seems to be routed via the net hub, which in the DU days if not local, I get...

    But be it Crash, Direct, or otherwise pretty much everything can go direct to the node..in 2016 since its going to hit the net, off the backbones... :) ;)

    ROUTE "*:*/*.*" "1:135/0.0" 1:135/999.0

    Will send ROUTED NETMAIL...

    crashmail doesn't like not having that line... so....

    CHANGE Normal,Direct 1:*/*.* Crash

    Doesn't seem to do that, since the route overides it....

    = 20-Sep-16 10:06:41 Changed priority for netmail to 1:135/0.0 from Normal to Crash


    Umm if its crash it should go DIRECT to the node!

    So these two don't seem to be set correct...

    Or would

    ROUTE "*:*/*.*" "*:*/*.*" 1:135/999.0

    OR

    CHANGE Normal,Crash 1:*/*.* Direct

    Thanks !

    Damn! You stopped! I was having a learning experience. I did wonder about your new ROUTE statement and was interested in the result. :)

    To my way of thinking, CM routing ought to be reflecting your binkD 'node' entries. Sure you could use default routing but the process really is:

    * establishing an agreement with another sysop;
    * necessitating a node entry in binkD; and,
    * then doing a matching edit in CM's config to follow that agreement.

    Wildcard configurations only work where everyone uses the same session protocol, i.e. binkP. Even default routing resembles agreements.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    no... CRAsh only means "go as soon as this mail is qualified in an event"... DIRect means to "go directly to the destination when qualified in an event"... then there's IMMediate which means "go right now, damn what the event has qualified"... but not all mailers or tossers got that right...

    Maybe because I had "metro" service I didn't care so, it sent to my host as soon as stuff hit.. maybe thats the confusion... or the fog of way too long! :) ;)

    Yeah... I stopped... as I was looking for some feedback...

    and

    I waiting for my "papers" to be official and get my node number

    as well as not wanting to upset any one with a bunch of stuff going out or coming in etc...

    I agree... but I think that would mean that CM would need to read binkd.cfg?? Which at this point that seems unlikely since it appears to be abandoned...

    Only thing I can figure is that between FD and FMail and the way I had things setup then... and possibly the fog of several decades...


    Wildcard configurations only work where everyone uses the same session protocol, i.e. binkP. Even default routing resembles agreements.

    Well for Fido On the 'Net that really seems to be the only route... maybe those who actually still have actual modem setups might be using EMSI via FD etc..

    I still have 'actual' modem setups in Radius (for two of 'em), and in BinkleyTerm's config. There just isn't any actual modem connected; no physical COM ports, you see.

    Well, since the warranty has run out on this junkpile HP... mmm... I might try an old internal 14.4 later in summer, if it's got the slot for it. OTOH, I've been making that threat for quite a while... lazy old man at the helm problem at work. ;)

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    I am actually to point I just might dig through the bins in the shed to dig out the Telebits and some other of the various V.34 and up modems...Yes its like a museum of modems here! :)

    The internals are long gone... I had a few mostly for voice and ICLID and FAX via CAS.... It was a pain to make sure you got real hardware internals, with FCLASS 2 or 2.0 etc..

    We'll see how much play time I get after I play with some else a little more "virtual" as a test..... :) ;)
