allows users to telnet out to another BBS, from the
EleBBS computer they are on.
Here is how to configure it:
to bring up the menu editor, and select a langauge such
menu to edit. If you want to allow a hotkey to bring
up the Outbound Telnet from any menu then select the
cursor down to the last line of the menu and press Enter
to edit a new menu option. Select Action by pressing
Enter again, and select the Menu Action group called
" Internet connectivity". Finally
Select the option that says "101 Telnet
down to the "Display field and
press Enter. This will put the cursor on the top display
bar, just below all the digits. Put just a semi-colon
(";" here and press Enter. The
semicolen will prevent a Carrage Return from being sent
to the screen.
cursor down to the "OptData field
and press Enter. Here you can enter any of the following
/SERVER= Gives the server to join. If this parameter is
specified, the user cannot join another server.
If the OptData line is left blank, then EleBBS will prompt the user as to what server they want to telnet to.
This could be used as tool by a hacker so I suggest you dont allow that.
go to the "HotKey" option in
the menu editor and press Enter to select a hotkey to
activate the IRC from this menu (or all menus if this
menu is named GLOBALRA). Thats it. Exit the menu editor
and save changes.
You are done, so log on and try it out.
