Enter selection (A-M,0-9) [Q]uit : _______________________________________________________ A B C This option allows you to enter the name and the phone number of your BBS. This option allows you to enter the username of the SysOp. This option allows you to enter your registration number for the BBS program. However, since Renegade is currently an �eta test, this option does absolutely nothing. This option allows you to declare your chat hours. When someone pages you during these hours, a bell will sound to inform you that a user wishes to chat. This option defines the hours that the minimum baud rate callers may log on. Some SysOps prefer to restrict the hours available to users of lower baud modems for various reasons. This option defines the hours that file downloading is allowed. This option defines the hours that low baud callers may download files. This option defines the SysOp, new user and baud override passwords. This options sets the number of seconds before a scheduled event is run in which the user is warned. Menu where users with an undefined startout menu will start from. (Normally set to MAIN) The startout menu is the menu which the user is first in contact with. Some Sysops prefer to have the menu set to something else to perform some type of maintenance before the user gets to the main menu. Prefix of the Bulletin Files. (Normally left Blank or set to BULLET) Refer to Chapter 11-D-12, SubBulletins for a explanation. This option allows you to tell Renegade if it has 1 or more n (If multi-node, you must use the -Nx command to load node x.) This option will allow you to turn the Network mode on. It activates functions as: a) Forces local security on. b) Disables all function keys unless a sysop is logged on.

This directory is used for various things to hold files while using them, but when they aren't permanent. This option defines the directory in which the protocol drivers will be held. These include DSZ.EXE, HSLINK.EXE, etc. These files are used in the Protocol Editor as your upload and download files. This option defines the directory in which the archive drivers will be held. These include PKUNZIP.EXE, ARJ.EXE, PKZIP.EXE, ARCE.COM, etc. This option defines the directory in which the files which are attached to Email and Netmail are to be sent to.

Each menu option is described in detail below. 1 This is the baud rate that Renegade will use when waiting for calls at the WFC menu. This should be set to the modem's maximum baud rate, either 300, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400 or 57600 baud. This is the COM port that your modem is connected to, which can be COM1 through COM8. This is the command that initializes the modem. This is VERY important, as it tells the modem how to operate under the BBS environment. This is the command that enables the modem to answer an incoming call. This is the command that hangs up the modem. This is the command that places the modem offhook. (Makes the phone line busy.) This sets the time (in minutes) in which the modem will be reinitialized if no one has called. (Warning: Do not set this to zero. If you do, the modem will be constantly reinitializing.) This option lets you lock the COM port if you have a 9600 baud or faster modem. This option sets the baud rate to lock the COM port at if you have option 8 set to "Yes".

This option toggles CTS/RTS flow control on or off. Flow control tells the computer or modem when to start and stop sending or receiving information to/from the other device. (RTS/CTS is also known as Hardware Flow Control.) Set this to the opposite of RTS/CTS flow control. (It's technically same as RTS/CTS except it's Software Flow Control. RTS/CTS is better if you can support it.) The minimum ACS setting required to be met by the user trying to logon to the node so they can stay on.

This option sets the limit for the amount of Email that any single caller can leave during a call. This option sets the limit for the number of feedback messages that any single caller can send during a call. This option sets the limit for the number of public messages that any single caller can send during a call. This option sets the limit for the number of chat attempts that any single caller can make during a call. This option sets the limit for the amount of Email that can be kept waiting for a certain user. This option sets the limit for the amount of Email that can be kept waiting for a Co-SysOp. This option sets the number of logons a user can have before the BBS checks to see (as a security feature) if the user knows what the birthdate they entered into the BBS at the first logon. This option tells the BBS where to swap memory to when the BBS "swaps" out of Renegade. The locations are either (D)isk, (E)MS Memory, (X)MS Memory, (N)on XMS Extended Memory or (A)nywhere. This option sets the number of attempts a user can make to log on to the BBS, before the BBS hangs up on them. This option sets the amount of days before a user has to change their password as a security precaution. This option sets the SysOp chat color. This only matters to the users that can view ANSI colors, as this color is the one that is used while the SysOp is typing. This goes along with option K, except that it's the user chat color. (In case you're wondering.. the reason there are 2 different colors for chat is basically so that the Sysop and user knows who said what.) This option sets the minimum amount of hard drive space (in K) that must be available on the hard drive in order to post a message. Pretty much the same as option M, except that it deals with the amount of space needed to be free to upload a file.

This option defines the minimum baud rate that can call into the BBS. (This is normally used to "lock-out" 300 baud users who are normally too slow to do much.)

This option specifies whether or not to automatically open the chat buffer during a chat session. This option specifies whether or not the auto-message is displayed during the logon process. This option specifies whether or not the bulletin menu is presented during the logon process. This option specifies whether or not the last few callers list is displayed during the logon process.

This option specifies whether or not the phone should be taken off-hook during local logons. This option specifies whether or not to force all users to vote on all unanswered voting questions. This option controls the "compression" of file and message base numbers. This option takes a little explaining... Say you have ten message bases (1-10), and bases 2, 6 and 9 are restricted from certain users. Normally when the list of message areas is displayed, those areas are not shown, leaving a gap in the listings (1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10). If this option is set to on, all the message base numbers are made contiguous..(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) to the user.

This option specifies whether or not upload/download ratio checking is active. This option specifies whether or not a file point file system is active. This option turns the daily download limits on or off. This option toggles if the uploads will be recommented and converted to the current file base's archive setting. This option works with option C and defines how many file points should be given for the upload based on the number of K in the given upload. This option will toggle whether or not Renegade will search an uploaded file for FILE_ID.DIZ. (It is a file that describes what the file is, no matter what the user enters for information. It is a standard also used by PC Board.) This option defines the % of the file's points that is rewarded to the uploader whenever the file is downloaded. This option defines how many file points you get per file size. (See E) This option defines what 1 file point is equal to in K. (ie: if set to 10k, every 10k of a file will charge the user 1 file point.) This option defines the percentage of time that a user is refunded after uploading a file. This option defines the file base that is set to "SysOp only". This is for SysOp-only uploads which are sent by putting a "\" as the first character in the file description.

These lines are displayed when the BBS asks for a user name, real name, user number, or NEW for a new user. This is displayed just before the input area, and is usually a prompt such as "Logon:" that lets the caller know that the system is ready to log them on. This is the character that is echoed to the screen when the caller types sensitive information. This string tells the user that the SysOp is available and ready to chat. This string is displayed when the SysOp is not available to chat. This string is displayed when the SysOp has engaged the Chat mode. This string is displayed when the SysOp disengages the Chat mode.
