    Hello everybody!

    A recent post made me look into upgrading... I've configured net2bbs.ini and it seems to be passing everything correctly:

    ==== Begin "net2bbs.txt" ====
    05-03-2016 09:26:05 - Listening for Telnet connections on port 23 05-03-2016 09:26:05 - Listening for Socket Policy connections on port 843 05-03-2016 09:26:16 - 127.0.0.1 - Telnet login: Node 1 opened. 05-03-2016 09:26:16 - 127.0.0.1 - Hostname: localhost

    Spawn: c:\netfoss\nf.bat /n1 /h1756 c:\ezy\net2ezy.bat 1 1756 127.0.0.1 05-03-2016 09:26:25 - Node 1 closed.
    05-03-2016 09:26:53 - Shutting down.
    ==== End "net2bbs.txt" ====

    As you can see the node is 1, the handle is 1756. The directories are all set.


    ==== Begin "net2ezy.bat" ====
    @echo off
    set TASK=%1
    SET EZY=C:\EZY
    SET CEXYZLOG=C:\ezy\dsz.%1
    SET DSZLOG=C:\EZY\DSZ.%1
    SET SOCKET=%2

    cd\ezy
    ezy.exe -N%1 -B38400 -IP%3
    ==== End "net2ezy.bat" ====

    Yet when I connect it just display's "Can't find Netfoss" and that's as far as I get.

    If I leave Gamesrcv answering everything is still working as expected, with the
    one exception of NFU saying it can't find the %SOCKET% variable. (Trying to get NFU to work so I can launch the
    win32 doors / connect to BBSlink).

    Any ideas?

    Yeah put the proper version of netfoss.dll in the system32 directory not an old version. Dumbass.

    net2bbs.ini and it seems to be passing everything correctly:

    I was able to get it going on the GAP bbs but have not tried the Ezycom yet
    for the telnetdoor by R. Parrish. There is a NFU.txt file that gives good information on using nfu. I can send you my bat file that I use on the GAP bbs. Also be sure you make the suggested changes to your bat file that loads Ezycom. I got the nfu working with net2bbs but my Ezycom is on gamesrv and have not got that working yet.
