A This option allows you to enter the name and the


phone number of your BBS.

B This option allows you to enter the username of


the SysOp.

C 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.

D 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.

E 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.

F This option defines the hours that file down-


loading is allowed.

G This option defines the hours that low baud


callers may download files.

H This option defines the SysOp, new user and baud


override passwords.

I This options sets the number of seconds before a


scheduled event is run in which the user is
warned.

J 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.

K Prefix of the Bulletin Files. (Normally left Blank


or set to BULLET) Refer to Chapter 11-D-12, Sub-
Bulletins for a explanation.

L 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.)

M 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.
c) Disables the sysop window system.
d) All WFC commands are disabled except the
obvious.
e) If no node is specified on the command line,
the node will assume it is a local node, and
automatically configure itself as the next
available node number.

0 This option defines the directory in which your


main data files are stored. (.DAT, .DIR, etc.)

1 This option defines the directory in which your


text files are stored. (.ANS, .ASC, .INF, .ASW,
etc.)

2 This option defines the directory in which your


messages are stored. (.BRD, .MIX, etc.)

3 This option defines the directory in which the


menu files are stored. (.MNU)

4 This option defines the directory in which the


Version 7 Nodelist files will be stored.

5 This option defines the directory in which the


trap files, system log files and capture chat
files are stored. (.LOG)

6 This option defines the directory in which


temporary files are stored. This directory is
used for various things to hold files while using
them, but when they aren't permanent.

7 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.

8 This option defines the directory in which the


archive drivers will be held. These include
PKUNZIP.EXE, ARJ.EXE, PKZIP.EXE, ARCE.COM, etc.

Enter selection or (Q)uit :


_______________________________________________________

Note that the command strings can contain the following


special characters:

"|" Sends a carriage return (^M) to the modem.

"^x" Sends a control character to the modem.


(^M can be typed as a | here.)

"~" Performs a half-second delay before sending


the next character to the modem.

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.

2 This is the COM port that your modem is connected


to, which can be COM1 through COM8.

3 This is the command that initializes the modem.


This is VERY important, as it tells the modem how to
operate under the BBS environment.

4 This is the command that enables the modem to answer


an incoming call.

5 This is the command that hangs up the modem.

6 This is the command that places the modem offhook.


(Makes the phone line busy.)

7 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.)

8 This option lets you lock the COM port if you have a
9600 baud or faster modem.

9 This option sets the baud rate to lock the COM port
at if you have option 8 set to "Yes".
A 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.)

B 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.)

C The minimum ACS setting required to be met by the


user trying to logon to the node so they can stay
on.

D The complete path to where the door files


(CALLINFO.BBS, DORINFOx.DEF, DOOR.SYS, etc.) will be
written to for this node. (If blank, files are
written to main BBS directory)

E The string inserted here sets what is displayed by


this node's line in the teleconference before the
user's text is sent normally.

F The string inserted here sets what is displayed by


this node's line in the teleconference before the
user's text is sent anonymously.

G The string inserted here sets what is displayed by


this node's line in the teleconference before the
user's text is sent globally.

H The string inserted here sets what is displayed by


this node's line in the teleconference before the
user's text is sent privately.

R These are the result codes returned by the modem


when the NO CARRIER, NO DIALTONE, BUSY and various
baud rate conditions are encountered. Case 1 result
codes are the main codes returned by the modem.
Case 2 result codes are provided for persons using
MNP class modems. (Also called ARQ mode.)

A This option sets the limit for the amount of Email
that any single caller can leave during a call.

B This option sets the limit for the number of


feedback messages that any single caller can send
during a call.

C This option sets the limit for the number of public


messages that any single caller can send during a
call.

D This option sets the limit for the number of chat


attempts that any single caller can make during a
call.

E This option sets the limit for the amount of Email


that can be kept waiting for a certain user.

F This option sets the limit for the amount of Email


that can be kept waiting for a Co-SysOp.

G 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.

H 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.

I This option sets the number of attempts a user can


make to log on to the BBS, before the BBS hangs up
on them.

J This option sets the amount of days before a user


has to change their password as a security
precaution.

K 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.

L 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.)

M 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.

N Pretty much the same as option M, except that it


deals with the amount of space needed to be free to
upload a file.
O This option sets the number of days that the SysOp
back logs are kept. (Maximum is 15 days.)

P This option sets the time of inactivity before the


WFC screen is blanked. (Screen Saver)

R This option defines the delay in between beeps to


the user or the Sysop.

S This option defines the number of calls the BBS has


received.

T 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.)

U This option defines the minimum baud rate that can


download files from the BBS. (See note on option T)

0-9 These are the F1-F10 Sysop Definable Macros that


only the Sysop can use on the BBS.

A This option specifies whether or not handles are


allowed on the system. (A handle is an alias.
Like CB Radio.)

B This option specifies whether or not the user's phone


number is asked for during the logon process.

C This option controls local security protection.

D This option specifies whether or not the RENEGADE.OVR


file is to be accessed from, EMS (expanded) memory. If
the overlay can't be stored in EMS, Renegade will
access the overlay from disk as usual. (EMS is MUCH
faster in accessing then the disk.)

E This option controls global activity trapping. If set


to ON, the BBS will make a trap file for EVERY caller.

F This option specifies whether or not to automatically


open the chat buffer during a chat session.

G This option specifies whether or not the auto-message


is displayed during the logon process.

H This option specifies whether or not the bulletin menu

J This option specifies whether or not the user's status


is shown during the logon process.

K This option specifies whether or not Renegade's color


codes will be stripped from the SysOp log.

L This option specifies whether or not the phone should


be taken off-hook during local logons.

M This option specifies whether or not to force all users


to vote on all unanswered voting questions.

N 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.

O This option controls the search for duplicate files


during the uploading procedure.

P This option controls the output of the SysOp log. You


have three choices.

File only -- Puts the log in the SYSOPxx.LOG file.

Printer & file -- Same as File except it outputs the


log to the printer also.

Printer only -- Sends the log to the printer only.

R This option specifies whether or not ROM BIOS routines


are to be used for all local screen output.

S This option specifies whether or not "snow checking" is


required for Color Graphics Adapters (CGAs).

T This option defines if new users will be allowed onto


the BBS or not.

U This option defines if Renegade will Swap memory if it


shells out of the BBS.

V This option defines if the BBS will use the Shuttle


Logon.

W This option toggles Chat call paging. (After a user


pages you, the board buzzes you to remind you that the
user wants to chat.)

X This option defines if the time limits are per call or


per day.

Y This option defines if most options (some are logon,


most functions in SysOp menu, etc.) ask for the Sysop
password before letting you execute the command.

1 This option defines the number of the user that will


receive "new user" messages.

2 This option specifies the number of minutes before the


bell is sounded to alert the user that the system is
about to "time out".

3 This option specifies the number of minutes that are


allowed to pass with no activity before the system
"times out".

1 This option specifies whether or not the archive format


is active.

2 This option specifies the extension used for files


saved in the particular archive format.

3 This option defines the way the board is to view the


contents of archive files in the current format.

/1 - Uses the internal ZIP file viewer


/2 - Uses the internal ARC file viewer
/3 - Uses the internal ZOO file viewer
/4 - Uses the internal LZH file viewer
/5 - Uses the internal ARJ file viewer

If you have defined an archive format that is not


supported internally, use this option to define the
commandline required to view the archive's contents.

When defining the command line, substitute the "@F" MCI


code where the actual filename would be placed.

4 This option defines the command line used to create or


update an archive file using this format.

When defining the command line, substitute the "@F" and


"@I" MCI codes where the actual archive filename and
file to be archived, respectively, would normally be
placed.

5 This option is similar to option 4, except that it


defines the commandline used to extract files from an
archive file. All rules and restrictions mentioned
above also apply.

6 This option is similar to option 4, except that it


defines the commandline needed to check the integrity
of an archive file.
7 This option is similar to option 4, except that it
defines the commandline used to add a comment to an
archive file. Use the MCI code "@C" to insert the
comment line from the file base. (ie: pkzip -z@C @F ..
Will add the comment selected in the file base to the
file.)

8 This option defines the ERRORLEVEL value that the


archiving program returns when an operation has been
successfully completed. Most programs return a level
of 0.
