flexd.conf - flexd configuration file.
file is read by flexd at program startup and is used to modify
the behaviour of the robot.
The lines within flexd.conf
must either be a comment line, which starts
with a # in the first column, or one of the commands listed below. Commands
and arguments are delimited by white space. Arguments can contain white space
if they are enclosed in double quotes. Also C-style escapes (\n, \x0A, \012
etc.) are parsed within double quotes.
Available configuration commands are:
- MyCall <xx#xx>
- Sets up the callsign AND ssid you wish to use to connect to
your flexnet neighbor for destinations import. Do NOT use an ssid of your
ax25 interface which you'll be polling from as you may create a loop
between your system and the flexnet neighbor. An example:
- PollInterval <time/secs>
- This string tells the robot how many times in SECONDS to
poll your flexnet neighbor and import their destination table. In my
production environment 300 (or 5 minutes) seemed to be fine. I would NOT
go below 180 (3 minutes) as you may create more traffic than needed.
- FlexGate <xx#xx-##>
- This is the callsign of your flexnet neighbor. The robot
will read this callsign-ssid and attempt a connect to it every ## minutes
assigned in PollInterval <time/mins>. Be sure you do NOT configure
it to connect to a service linked within the flexnet neighbor such as a
BBS! You will NOT receive any destinations to your system that way and the
BBS will think you're attempting a feed.
