• Rlogin -d option

    From plt@VERT/SBBSVA to All on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 05:20:49
    I was reading the Major BBS Manual and it included in the manual that you can use Synchronet to run doors from Major BBS by calling rlogin ip-address -d game external code.

    the -d option is not by passing the login and running the game? Is the -d option still support with Synchronet BBS?

    What does the '-d' option do? This is not a standard (BSD) rlogin option, so I'm not familiar with it.

    If 'rlogin -d' is specifying the terminal type, then yes, that should work with Synchronet BBS. See the modopts.ini [logon] rlogin_auto_xtrn setting here:

    NOTE: you may want to disable all optional questions for new users on
    the synchronet configuration and make sure it's *ONLY* available to get connections from your MajorBBS if you want to use it as a door server.

    If you don't disable the newuser questions, they'll get asked on first connection. Aside, you can see the logic iirc in the exec/logon.js
    script on the synchronet side. If you changed this script you may have inadvertently removed said logic.

    As to the -d, that would likely be part of the rlogin process being used
    with mbbs.
