ulistd - collect FBB BBS messages list sent via unproto frames
ulistd -c callsign [-n] [-l] [-g] [-m number] [-v]
is a daemon that comunicates with one or more F6FBB BBSs using the
unproto (UI) frames and gathers the information about messages available in
the BBS. Ulistd can act in two modes. In active
mode it automatically
sends the requests to keep the lists up to date. In passive
uses only the list entries transmitted by the BBS. When some missing messages
are detected it calls the script /var/ax25/complete_agent
complete the list. Typically this script runs axgetlist (1)
to read the
missing messages. Each home BBS must be specified in configuration file
The unproto listing must be enabled on each BBS (ask sysop to do this for your
callsign). When BBS rejects a request, daemon stops sending requests to this
BBS. When a BBS doesn't respond, request sending is stopped and daemon waits
until the BBS sends an unproto frame.

- Try to exec /var/ax25/list_agent script each time

downloading selected messages using the axgetmail (1) utility and
deleting the old messages using the msgcleanup (1) utility.
- -m number
- Sets the first message number to request. This is useful
when running the daemon for the first time.
