Re: Hostdeny.txt

Would you mind sending me your hostdeny.txt? I'm getting a lot of spam/hacker contacts I'd like to block but they always seem to come from different ip's. Having a good starting file would help a lot.

Re: RTFM?

I used to have problems connecting and ended up setting mine to retry 200 times, timeout of 10 minutes and redial after 2 seconds. It will still dial several times before connecting but it does connect every day

Re: MBBS/WG/WG2 Packet Drivers for VMs

Hey Dan,
Think you already have rlogin showing the module it was connecting to. And you allowed removal of the busy flag so global messages will go through it. We talked about it a few years ago and you added that functionality. The command line options are -m <module name> and -b

Re: Security

Personally, I'm not interested in any personal information, names, addresses, etc. I do like having their city/state so everyone can see where the other users are located in the userlist.
