When accessed remotely, a password prompt is sent, containing 5 random numbers in the range 1 to the length of the PASSWORD string as defined in the configuration file.
Enter PASSWORD followed by the corresponding five letters from the password string.
If entered from a local terminal or via a Telnet session with SYSOP flag set you will go straight to SYSOP mode.
Display or update the corresponding parameter for a specified port
Digipeat control flag for this port.
0 = dont digi, 1 = digi everything, 255 = digi UI frames only.
Port to send digied frames on. Zero means the port it was received on, any other number means send on that port.
Level 2 timout in milliseconds
Passed on to TNC if using KISS.
Used to allow transmission whilst DCD is active on HDLC cards, and to allow connection of a NETROM cluster via a diode matrix.
L3ONLY=0|1 If set to 1 will stop users (but not HOST sessions) issuing downlink connects on this port.
Maximum outstanding frames.
Default maximum packet length for this port
'Probability to transmit' value (1-255)
Default quality for nodes heard on this port. Set to zero to suppress all level 3/4 activity (including NODES broadcasts) on this port.
Level 2 delayed ack timer in milliseconds
Level 2 maximum retry value
If set to 1, system uses the detection of a valid frame to indicate that the channel is busy, rather than the DCD signal from the modem. Used only for HDLC cards.
TX Keyup delay in milliseconds
TXTAIL timer in ms. Used only by KISS TNCs.
Up to about 40 callsigns, separated by single commas.
If present, only stations in the list will be allowed to connect to you on this port.
The SSID should not be specified. The total length of the list, including commas, is 256 bytes.
Read or change the transmitter DISABLE flag for one port.
XMITOFF port# to read.
XMITOFF port# 1 to disable a port.
The default is 0, meaning the transmitter is not stopped.
Display or update the corresponding Node parameter.
Time interval the beacon is sent by the Node
Suppresses the display of NODES with an Alias that starts with a # sign.
IDMSG is sent every IDINTERVAL minutes. It is sent from the PORT Callsign if one is defined, otherwise from NODECALL. The main purpose of this is to satisfy the requirements of those administrations that require a regular station identification in the same mode as used for communication.
Maximum Level 3 hops
Level 4 Delayed ACK timer
Level 4 Timeout
Level 4 Retries
Level 4 Window
Clears list of recently heard stations
MH p CLEAR
Defines the minimum quality for a destination to be included in a 'Nodes' broadcast on this port.
If there is no traffic for IDLETIME seconds, the link will be closed.
Time between NODES broadcasts (seconds)
Initial Obsolescence value
Minimum Obsolescence value to be included in NODES broadcasts.
Link Validation Timer. If there is no activity for T3 seconds, an RR(P) command will be sent to make sure the other station is still there.
Used to help track down missing buffers if the buffer count goes very low, normally should only be used if I request it
Re-read your Port CTEXT files
KISS p c v
Send KISS command/value pair (eg for setting TXDELAY). Parameters are port, command and value (all in decimal)
Performs a shutdown -r -f in linux. This reboots the machine the node is running on.
Instructs the node software to quit immediately by setting CLOSING
ROUTES CALL P parms
Use ! flag to toggle locked routes after parms
Tells Node to save and restore MH lists when shut down and restarted
Saves the NODES and ROUTES tables, so that they can be reloaded when the software is restarted, ; rather than having to wait for the tables to be rebuilt.
These can be used to simulate CMS or Internet outage
Disable CMS acess on Telnet Port p.
Close or reopen Port n. Enables another program to use the port to allow the tnc to be reconfigured without closing the node
Reconfigure Telnet Port p.
TELReconfig p ALL
TELReconfig p USERS
ALL does a conmplete reconfig and disconnects users. This is equivalent to EXTRESTART p 1.
USERS just re-reads the USER records from config file.
Display information from your WINLINK 2000 SYSOP record, or create a basic record if you don't have one.
