ulistd - collect FBB BBS messages list sent via unproto frames
ulistd -c callsign [-n] [-l] [-g] [-m number] [-v]
Ulistd 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
automaticaly sends the requests to keep the lists up to date. In
passive mode it uses only the list entries transmitted by the BBS. When
some missing messages are detected it calls the script
/var/ax25/complete_agent that will complete the list. Typicaly this
script runs axgetlist (1) to read the missing messages. Each home BBS
must be specified in configuration file /etc/ax25/ulistd.conf
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.
Specifies the callsign for sending requests.
-l Enables logging to the system log file. The default is off.
-g Try to exec /var/ax25/list_agent script each time BBS reports
the end of list. This script contains by default commands for
downloading selected messages using the axgetmail (1) utility
and deleting the old messages using the msgcleanup (1)
-m number Sets the first message number to request. This is useful when
running the daemon for the first time.
-n Disables sending requests to each home BBS when daemon
starts. The default is on.
-v Display the version.
