• Outbound RLogin and MCI Codes

    From Fat Rastus@46:1/107 to All on Saturday, July 09, 2016 00:01:44
    Hello,

    I am still experimenting with the (IR) Outbound RLOGIN command. If I use a Data line like this:

    /addr=twgs.mybbs.com:513 /user=TEXT%U /pass=mypassword

    I was expecting the User's Handle to be inserted at the MCI code but it is not. it's sending TEST%U. Placeing a space between TEXT %U won't work either.

    Is this something that can be changed?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    You could write an MPL to do it.

    Uses User
    GetThisUser
    Var logname: String = 'TEXT'+Replace(UserAlias,' ','_')
    Begin
    MenuCmd('IR','/addr=twgs.mybbs.com:513 /user='+logname+' /pass=passwd')
    End

    It's already a thing. Use %USER% instead of %U in the IR command line.

    Also, since rlogin's default port is 513, you can omit the :513 from your
    /addr

    Thanks for the info, it's sure to come in handy. But the reason I mentioned this is that I assumed the non-functioning MCI code was an oversight.. just trying to help debug.

    Thanks,

    From the whatsnew docs:

    + The RLOGIN menu action will translate @USER@ to the user's handle when
    used in the "/user=" or "/pass=" part of the command data.
