• How to make FREQ requestsJ

    From Mewcenary@VERT/EXTRICAT to All on Sat Feb 12 14:40:00 2022
    Hi all,

    OK, this will be a horrifically newbie question but... Have been Googling around on this and failing.

    How do I _make_ FREQ requests to a BBS? I see numerous adverts offering it.

    The best method I found on the Synchronet Wiki was to manually craft .REQ and .FLO files. Is that it? Or is there a more straightforward way?

    Thanks all,

    Mewcenary.
