    I use Dir= because then files will be imported into your filebase. Path= will place those files into the path given but they will not be imported.

    Ticket (and BinkIT) will work with any system you run your BBS on, windows, linux, *BSD, or even the Pi.

    I like that.

    I have been running it for a short time. The Pro's are that it is simple and effective. For a leaf node it works wonderfully.

    The Cons (as I see it) are that there is no remote Filefix for nodes to connect or disconnect their areas so you need to do that your self.

    Files that I send to my points in othernets are from my fido address. That has not been a problem for me since those points are my own, simply for testing. In the grand scheme of things that could be a problem for hub nodes.

    If we asked Deuce we could probably get tickit to send from a different aka with a keyword in tickit.ini possibly. Writing a filefix though, is no small task.. but it might be worth asking about.

    I wonder if the areafix code in SBBSECHO could be reused?

    I was wondering about that - I'm a file hub for 2 nets and would want to be able to use the zone-matching AKA for the to/from address for files.

    I've wondered about that too but I don't know if that is on the todo list or not. Nodes can change their tick password with Areafix now but not file areas AFAIK.

    Maybe Deuce or Digital Man will have a comment.

    I'm an NC in one of my nets but have no nodes to send files to presently. If that ever changes I may need to do some thing about that. :)

    Deuce Help!
