ipserver Server allows remotes to send files to Fip in either plain vanilla ascii or kermit or zmodem or xmodem or ymodem. Server first connects to whichever port you have specified and reads its parameter file - normally SERVER - in tables/server. The syntax of this file is : ; comment Messages/banners etc mbanner: Welcome Banner on connection eg mbanner:\021\r\nWelcome to Database Download : \$h:\$n\r\nLog: mokpass: Logon successful message eg mokpass:\r\nOk, Ready to receive mbadpass: Logon unsuccessful, try again message eg mbadpass:\r\nAgain Please\r\n mbibi: Bye Bye message on logoff/disconnect eg mbibi:\r\nThank You, off at \$h:\$n \$d-\$m-\$y mfiles: File(s) received message eg mfiles:\r\nReceived mprompt: Prompt for those logons which are allowed to chose their preferred protocol eg mprompt:\r\nSend Files in Ascii (a), Kermit (k), X, Y or Zmodem (x, y, z) or Quit (q) : msendasc: When sending ASCII, the send file now prompt eg msendasc:\r\nASCII : Send file \SN now and finish with : mnameasc: Prompt for filename for Ascii input. If not specified, no prompt is displayed and all data is stuffed in the file. eg: mnameasc:Name of File or XX to Quit: See also the quit: keyword for the quit string. mproto: Protocol message mproto:\r\nProtocol : mabort: File Aborted message for kermit, zmodem, ymodem and xmodem mabort:\r\n** Aborted : Please resend file **\r\n Modem setups connect: the string from the modem signifying a connection eg connect:CONNECT discon: the string from the modem signifying disconnection (used for ASCII breaks only) eg discon:NO CARRIER setup: modem setup string setup:ats0=1&m4&a3&b1\r ok: message from the modem when escaped ok:OK escape string for the modem to go into manager mode escape:+++ clr: string to the modem to Clear down the call clr:ath\r Sundries bits: No of data bits - defaults to 8; set to 7 to strip parity bits:7 eof: End of file for ascii send eof:@#@# eotx: End of file and end of transmission for ascii send eotx:MMMM quit: End of transmission for ascii send on filename prompt quit:bye loggoes: number of failed logon attempts before auto disconnect loggoes:4 motd: Message-Of-The_Day file to be displayed on logon (default is none) timeout: Timeout period in seconds default: 60 seconds This can be anytime between 20 and 1200 seconds (20mins). timeout:120 defhdr: Default Header for traffic - Kermit or Zmodem - sent without logging on. The syntax is the same as for 'newhdr:' There is no default. defdest: Default Destination for traffic - Kermit or Zmodem - sent without logging on or for those logons without a 'dest:' keyword. The syntax is the same as for 'dest:'. There is no default. archive: Name of Archive file for all incoming text. The default is the LOGON name. This puts all incoming, raw data into a day file in log/data. archive:database nohdr: Do NOT add a FIP Header on these files. redun: Force this file to 2 redundant systems (equivalent to SZ:hostA,hostB in the routing files for wires) redun:sparc5,sparc6 outfmt: Output format for ipout/ip2wtr/ipnews/ipprint/ipgtwy/ipedsys etc default: server banwait: No of seconds to wait before sending Banner. default:1 Change this if you have modems which train AFTER connecting as the training will throw away your banner and message of the day. zmodem-buffer-size: (size in kilobytes) This is the default window for receiving files using zmodem. The default is 1. The maximum is 32 for a window of 32768 bytes. Five CarriageReturns (CR) can also be used to wakeup the connection/pls login string for modems WITHOUT a recognisable CONNECT string. When a remote connects, the LOGON file in tables/server is checked for the logon,password. Note that the password follows the logon with no spaces and must be with the same punctuation as in the logon file ie : ; ; LOGON file for Server file for IPSERVER ; logon:windy,lane protocol:kermit dest:ind1+ind2 The logon MUST be windy,lane NOT windy lane or windy;lane. This file defines the protocol, destination for files and and extra FipHdr fields for each client. The protocol can be kermit, ascii, xmodem, ymodem, zmodem or prompt. Prompt will prompt which type does the client want. The destination is specified with the 'dest:' keyword and is one or more valid entries in the USERS file in table/sys. Again no embedded spaces are allowed, entries are separated by a plus sign and note that the USERS file is case sensitive. Extra header fields, as specified by the 'newhdr:' keyword may be required where extra processing is needed downstream. If the sender is sending junk filename, replace them with a system generated one with the 'newname:' keyword whose parameter can be in FipSeq logon:tory,graph protocol:kermit dest:tel1+tel2 newhdr:#SC:abc logon:rhu,barb protocol:prompt dest:junk newname:Crumble.\$d.\$s In the first example an extra FipHdr field has been added to all incoming files - SC:abc. in the second example, the incoming filename is ignored and replaced by Crumble.(dayOfMonth).(fileSeqno) eg on 4th March : Crumble.4.078 In this case the original name (if there was one) is in the FipHdr field SX. Zmodem Restarts. If a zmodem transmission is cut and the file has already transmitted some data (default 10000 bytes), it is saved in 'x' as 'SERVER.BIT.(name).(total length).(last mod date). If the file is sent again, the transmission is restarted from that point only and the saved file is cleared from 'x'. The sys admin may want to 'ipdelque' old files older than 2 or 3 days though... Turn this option off or readjust the minimum size with the '-R' input switch. The program is started useing input Parameters including : Mandatory : -n : name of this service default: none either -s : 'px25', 'sx25', Spider name or TTY device name.default: none -p : Spider port number default: none or -P : Port on UnixBox to use for outbound default: none This is only used where Terminal Servers canNOT run reverse telnet correctly and need to set a Permanent Virtual Connection across the ethernet to a fixed port number on the UnixBox Optional -l : do NOT log incoming items default: log -o : output queue to leave text default: spool/2go To send the file through IPROUTE, use -o 2brouted. This will pick up routing information via the file called the '-n' param. -R : allow zmodem restarts if the file is this size default: 10000 chrs To ignore, set -R0 -X : Turn Telnet Transparency OFF default: ON For terminal servers, is the port set to transparency ? -U : Raw or Telnet NO-escape mode default: telnet transparency ON For terminal servers, is the port set to transparency ? -x : Wakeup string for Pad/modem etc default: none -y : Banner string to strip from terminal server.default: SpiderBanner -Y : There is no banner to strip default: as above -z : Server Parameter file in tables/server default: same as name -v : version number and quit default: no Please note that when setting up the Spider/Modem/terminal Server, please turn Telnet Transparency ON and and software flow control (XON/XOFF) off.
