Notes about WWIVnet-FTN

  • The WWIVnet-FTN hub is running D’Bridge. D’Bridge uses the same password for Binkp Session Password as the Packet Password. I can make them different, but when a Session Password is set - it will also set the Packet Password (will use the same PW).
  • The destination BinkP port for my D’Bridge hub is 24555 (as noted in the Nodelist).
  • The Current Nodelist is available from: https://github.com/wwivbbs/wwivnet/tree/master/wwivnet
  • Please use wwivftn for the domain name when creating the network to avoid MD5 CRAM session PW issues.
  • To submit the application, please log into my BBS (bbs.weather-station.org) and email me the application or Internet email to: mark@weather-station.org
