  How to configure the EleBBS Outbound Telnet


EleBBS/Win32 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 as english.

  • Select the menu to edit. If you want to allow a hotkey to bring up the Outbound Telnet from any menu then select the GLOBALRA Menu.

  • Move 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 Out".

  • Move cursor 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.

  • Move the cursor down to the "OptData field and press Enter. Here you can enter any of the following options:
       /SERVER=         Gives the server to join. If this parameter is
                        specified, the user cannot join another server.
                        eg: /SERVER=bbs.mybbs.com
    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.

  • Finally 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.
