Major supports FTN?

I'm a total newbie to Major. I have ran and setup many types of BBS's. (Probably a large part of my problem.) This is the first time attempting to mess with Major.
So I've gotten pretty far in setting it up in VM... and I've been pouring through countless docs that I could get my hands on. But one thing I'm not seeing any where is documentation on setting Major BBS to a FiidoNet network. Is this not a thing in Major BBS? It's hard for me to fathom that it's not capable of it. I read the MBBS ad and it says "... and networking tools are available for FidoNet, RelayNet, MajorNet, WorldLink, NetACCESS, and of course INTERNET newsgroups."
So the answer is somewhere out there.

FYI: For people coming from other BBS's this is a zinger. FTN's are like in our checklist to setup before we can call a board setup complete and ready for public consumption. But I guess this was low priority stuff for Major since it's target market was corporations, who would typically have no interest in such connectivity.

There is no built-in support for FTN in the core of MBBS, this is a commonly requested feature and is something that we have on our list for a future release.

There were some additional products created by software vendors such as MjrFido for MBBS 6.25 but it is since long gone (no longer sold/licensed).
