NAME

       ulistd - collect FBB BBS messages list sent via unproto frames

SYNOPSIS

       ulistd -c callsign [-n] [-l] [-g] [-m number] [-v]

DESCRIPTION

       Ulistd  is  a daemon that comunicates with one or more F6FBB BBSs using
       the unproto (UI) frames and  gathers  the  information  about  messages
       available  in  the  BBS. Ulistd can act in two modes. In active mode it
       automaticaly sends the requests to  keep  the  lists  up  to  date.  In
       passive mode it uses only the list entries transmitted by the BBS. When
       some   missing   messages   are   detected   it   calls   the    script
       /var/ax25/complete_agent  that  will  complete  the list. Typicaly this
       script runs axgetlist (1) to read the missing messages.  Each home  BBS
       must be specified in configuration file /etc/ax25/ulistd.conf

       The  unproto  listing must be enabled on each BBS (ask sysop to do this
       for your callsign). When BBS rejects a request,  daemon  stops  sending
       requests  to  this  BBS. When a BBS doesn’t respond, request sending is
       stopped and daemon waits until the BBS sends an unproto frame.

OPTIONS

       -c callsign
                 Specifies the callsign for sending requests.

       -l        Enables logging to the system log file. The default is off.

       -g        Try to exec /var/ax25/list_agent script each time BBS reports
                 the end of list. This script contains by default commands for
                 downloading selected messages using the axgetmail (1) utility
                 and  deleting  the  old  messages  using  the  msgcleanup (1)
                 utility.

       -m number Sets the first message number to request. This is useful when
                 running the daemon for the first time.

       -n        Disables  sending  requests  to  each  home  BBS  when daemon
                 starts. The default is on.

       -v        Display the version.
