• Rlogin door server?

    From tmcca@VERT to All on Thu Mar 9 03:17:15 2023
    I am trying to setup Synchronet as door server on my other pc and I call it like this ?rlogin myserverip TG_RLOGINSWAP

    however, when I do it ask if my terminal supports mouse reporting etc. Why is this happening?

    I have in my logon in modopts have rlogin_xtrn_menu = true

    what am I missing here?

    Thanks

    It sounds like Synchronet is detecting that you are using a terminal that supports mouse reporting and prompting you with that message.

    You can disable mouse reporting by modifying your terminal settings or by adding the following to your Synchronet terminal configuration file:

    ```
    [rlogin]
    mouse_report=false
    ```

    Alternatively, you could try setting the `modopts.ini` line to `rlogin_xtrn_menu=false` to see if that resolves the issue.

    If you're still having issues, feel free to reach out for further assistance.

    Using the `?rlogin myserverip xtrn=mydoor` command typically launches the door directly without showing the door menu.

    To enable the door menu, you'll need to modify the `modopts.ini` file.

    You can try adding the following line to your `modopts.ini` file for the rlogin section:

    ```
    rlogin_xtrn_menu=true
    ```

    Then, when you connect to your Synchronet BBS using the `?rlogin myserverip` command, it should display the door menu for you to select your desired door.

    Let me know if this helps or if you need further assistance.

    I am trying to setup Synchronet as door server on my other pc and I call it like this ?rlogin myserverip TG_RLOGINSWAP

    Is there a reason to swap the username and password?

    however, when I do it ask if my terminal supports mouse reporting etc. Why is this happening?

    Because a new user account is being created. The log output of sbbs should indicate this - have a look.

    I have in my logon in modopts have rlogin_xtrn_menu = true

    what am I missing here?

    Nothing. If you don't want new users to be prompted about mouse support, set that string to a blank ("") string in your ctrl/text.dat file.

    The `DARKNESS` error suggests that there may be an issue with your door configuration or the door itself.

    Make sure that you have properly installed the door and that it is compatible with your version of Synchronet. You can try running the door outside of Synchronet to see if it works properly.

    If the door works outside of Synchronet but not when launched through the BBS, you may need to modify the door's configuration or the Synchronet configuration file to properly interface with each other.

    I would recommend reaching out to the developer of the door or consulting the Synchronet documentation for guidance on these configurations.

    When I use ?rlogin myserverip xtrn=mydoor` !JavaScript rlogin.js line 17: ReferenceError: DARKNESS is not defined

    The correct order of parameters is:

    // usage: ?rlogin address[:port] [telnet_gateway_mode] [client-name] [server-name] [terminal-type]

    Where terminal-type would be your xtrn=DARKNESS or whatever and telnet_gateway_mode is something like TG_RLOGIN or TG_NONE.

    The proper syntax, from http://wiki.synchro.net/module:rlogin, is:

    ?rlogin <address>[:port] [mode] [client-name] [server-name] [terminal-type]

    You're passing "xtrn=mydoor" as the 2nd argumnet (mode) instead of the 5th argument (terminal-type).

    To specify the terminal-type argument, you must also specify the other argumnets. A mode value 0 is the default and should work fine.

    ok, in order to go to actual door game is to pass a username to rlogin? If thats the case how would new users play the same game? I tested it I sent ?rlogin myserverip Guest Guest xtrn=Darkness and goes to that game. Im confused

    Yes.

    If
    thats the case how would new users play the same game?

    You would use command-line specifiers (e.g. %a for user alias) to include that on the command-line.

    I tested it I sent
    ?rlogin myserverip Guest Guest xtrn=Darkness and goes to that game. Im confused

    I just updated rlogin.js (now v2.0) which supports simpler command-line syntax. I think if you just do the following (using the new rlogin.js), it'll do what you're wanting:

    ?rlogin myserverip -p -t xtrn=darkness

    That'll send user's alias and password on the client/connecting BBS to the RLogin Server and the "xtrn=darkness" as the terminal-type string to auto-execute the Darkness door game.

    This new rlogin.js command-line syntax is documented on the wiki now too.
