FidoNet software for Linux
I made a FidoNet point package based on FEddy. FEddy was slightly changed
to make it possible using czech encoding (internal encoding was changed
to iso-8859-2 and external to CP895) and hence is this package useful
only for czech/slovak users. This package is provided as packages
for Redhat5.x systems:
It is necessary to setup properly configuration files /home/fido/.feddirc
and /home/fido/.ifcicorc and script /usr/local/bin/point! For more details
look into file FidoPoint.README in Redhat docs directory. (Last
update on 8 Mar 1999 - package contains now FEddy-1.4.02 and ifmail-2.14
was replaced by ifcico-3.0.cm.alpha-4.0.)
point packet based on Feddy-1.4.02 and ifcico-3.0.cm.alpha-4.0
was prepared by Peter Marbaise(firstname.lastname@example.org,2:2452/110.20). You can
cat it alternatively at ftp.gwdg.de.This
package has nice setup script for configuration of your personal mailbox.
Ifmail-2.x - set of FidoNet
compatible transport and gateway programs, running on multiple U*IX platforms
(Linux, FreeBSD, SCO, SVR4, SunOS and others). In cooperation with typical
U*IX e-mail and netnews packages, it allows to make a FidoNet node (or
point) on a machine running U*IX.
stands for "Internet - Fidonet Copy In / Copy Out", which is a FidoNet(r)
compatible transport agent. Currently it supports FTS-0001, YooHoo/2U2
and EMSI handshake protocols, Xmodem, Telink, Modem7, SEAlink w/overdrive
and crash recovery, Bark file and update requests, WaZOO protocols: DietIFNA,
plain Zmodem (aka ZedZip, EMSI flag "ZMO"), ZedZap and Hydra, WaZOO file
and update requests (nodelist flag should be XA). Password protected requests
are not implemented. There are plans to implement Janus protocol in the
future. Code based on unofficial ifmail-3.0 (by Eugene Crosser) which improves
i/o-handling over ifcico-2.x.
Binkd - Binkd is a
TCP/IP daemon for file transfer between two Fidonet systems. It supports
so-called "Binkley-Style outbound", also supported by most Fidonet software.
It uses it's own protocol called Binkp.
BinkleyTerm XE - BinkleyTerm XE is a
freely available FidoNet compatible transport agent and dumb terminal
Golded - full-featured mail/news
reader for Fidonet and Internet under GPL and LGPL licenses. It is highly
configurable, using plain text files. It supports a wide variety of messagebase
formats, including JAM, Squish, *.MSG, Hudson, Goldbase, PCBoard, WildCat!
and AdeptXBBS. GoldED is available for many platforms: DOS, DOS 32-bit,
OS/2, Win32 and
Linux. Currently GoldED runs only as textmode, but
GUI versions are also planned. (Pro èeské u¾ivatele
jsem vytvoøil pøevodní
tabulky mezi kódováními iso8859-2 a Kameniètí).
- FiDO Scanner-Tosser-Utility-Editor based on Oliver Graf's FEddi.
- A free multi-platform Fidonet Message Reader and Editor. Supports
the popular Fido, Squish and QuickBBS (Hudson) message base formats.
Project Husky - The goal
of this project is to develop a complete freeware suite of fidonet applications,
running under Linux and other multitasking/multiuser systems. The suite
should be comparable to now existing (and partly commercial) OS/2 systems.
To keep the configuration simple and reliable, all applications should
use one set of configuration-files.
