• InterBBS Processing Problem

    From Daryl Stout@HURRICAN to All on Tue Jul 25 08:59:20 2017
    Is there a problem with the Sunrise Doors InterBBS Processing?? Every time I've seen it run lately, it errors out, and never finishes. Another indicator was that in the games I play (where I've got folks competing against me), the scores for the other systems aren't updating.

    MY crystal ball is malfunctioning.... it is not telling me what you see
    and when you see it "error out" and what the error is....

    What games are not updating?

    Details are your friend, vagueness helps no one....

    How long has this been happening?

    Supply all the info in a support ticket, http://sunrisedoors.com/supportticket.php

    Hiya Daryl,

    Which games are doing this? I will see if I can create a similar
    instance on my side.

    Regards,
    Kris

    For the record... the "problems" Daryl Stout reported/questioned turned
    out to be self-inflicted.

    I will let Daryl explain the resolution, if he so wishes....

    Kris,

    instance on my side.

    The doors work fine. It's the InterBBS Processing. I get a message
    that INTERBBS.ALL is not found on the support site, and that there is a
    file transfer error.

    I'll get the data from the log, and send in a support ticket. If worse
    comes to worse, I'll reinstall the InterBBS process.

    The Sysop shoots himself in the router...never the foot or modem. <G>

    I have found that if you run PeerBlock, you MUST disable it BEFORE
    running the InterBBS Processing program. And, I've found that to ALSO be
    the case for other programs on my system.

    While Synchronet does have security features to deal with bots, etc.,
    you still have to "practice safe hex". Shoot, I do better with Al's
    Hackarama Door...although what I usually do is "steal the codes" and
    "visit the High Hacker". However, lately, I've gotten "shot with 2
    bullets" more often than not. And, I thought hacking was when one had an annoying cough. :P
