• netmail routing

    From Markus Reschke@2:240/1661 to All on Saturday, April 15, 2017 17:06:10
    Hi!

    I'm looking into netmail routing at the moment and got a question on how to interpret the documentation. Let's say I have a link to 2:240/1662 and want to add a netmail route for the node and its points. So I would add:

    route normal 2:240/1662 2:240/1662 2:240/1662.*

    But if I got it right, the 2:240/1662 is taken as 2:240/1662.0 so that following should do the same:

    route normal 2:240/1662 2:240/1662.*

    Correct?

    Regards,
    Markus

    I use that syntax to route to a 2:3xx point and it works fine.

    Regards

    i'm not sure but that's how i would take it... one of the main traditional packages handles it that way... z:n:f.* covers the points and the boss... route
    a netmail to my/this point from another system that passes the netmail to you... depending on your routing, you'll deliver it directly to the boss or the
    net's /0... it would hit my boss node before it hits this point... how it arrives at the boss node is another matter... tradition says the originator drops it off at the the boss' /0 but direct to the boss is valid, too...

    I believe so.

    Another way to do this is

    route normal boss 2:240/1662.*

    In this case you do not need to define a link. For example you may set up the line:

    route crash boss 2:221/360.*

    if you want to send mail to my main bbs or its points even if you do not have a
    link defined to 2:221/360.
