       axgetlist - read the message list from the BBS


       axgetlist [-b bbsname] [-s startnum]


       Axgetlist works as a replacement of ulistd(8) for those users who don´t
       have permission to use the unproto lists or  who  find  it  unreliable.
       Axgetlist  connects  the  home  BBS, sends the commands for getting the
       list of new messages and adds it to the same file as ulistd does.  This
       allows to use all the mail utilities the same way as with ulistd.

       Each BBS can use different format of message lists. The format for your
       BBS  must   be   carefuly   specified   in   the   configuration   file
       /etc/ax25/axgetlist.conf  (see  the example configuration file for more


       After the succesful connect to the BBS axgetlist  attempts  to  execute
       the  script  /var/ax25/auth_agent and redirects its stdin and stdout to
       the BBS. The BBS callsign is passed as the first command line argument.
       The  script  should take actions needed for user’s authorization to the
       BBS. When the script execution fails, axgetlist  continues  downloading
       the message list without authorization.
