axgetmsg - download selected messages from F6FBB BBS
axgetmsg -p <port> -c <mycall> -b <bbs> [-f <listfile>] [-d <dir>] [-v]
[-D] [nr1 [nr2] ...]
Axgetmsg connects the BBS and downloads specified messages using
compressed forward protocol. Each messages is stored to a single file
in the destination directory.
-p port Specifies the AX.25 port name used for communication with
-c mycall Sets the callsign of axgetmsg.
-b bbs The AX.25 path to the BBS: BBS_call [digi [digi] ...]
listfile contains the message numbers for download separated
by whitespaces. When the listfile is specified, message
numbers given via the command line are ignored.
-d dir Spepcify the destination directory for storing messages.
-v Verbose operation.
-D Display debugging information.
The messages are specified by their numbers via the command line or
using the listfile. For specifying personal messages the p letter can
be added before the message number (e.g. p30981). The difference
between bulletins and personal messages is that axgetmsg will remove
the personal messages from the BBS after downloading them.
After the succesful connect to the BBS axgetmsg 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, axgetmsg continues downloading the
messages without authorization.
