NAME

       axgetmsg - download selected messages from F6FBB BBS

SYNOPSIS

       axgetmsg  -p  <port>  -c <mycall> -b <bbs> [-f <listfile>] [-d <dir>] [-v] [-D] [nr1 [nr2]
       ...]

DESCRIPTION

       Axgetmsg connects the BBS  and  downloads  specified  messages  using  compressed  forward
       protocol. Each messages is stored to a single file in the destination directory.

OPTIONS

       -p port   Specifies the AX.25 port name used for communication with BBS.

       -c mycall Sets the callsign of axgetmsg.

       -b bbs    The AX.25 path to the BBS: BBS_call [digi [digi] ...]

       -f listfile
                 listfile  contains  the  message  numbers for download separated by whitespaces.
                 When the listfile is specified, message numbers given via the command  line  are
                 ignored.

       -d dir    Spepcify the destination directory for storing messages.

       -v        Verbose operation.

       -D        Display debugging information.

MESSAGE NUMBERS

       The  messages  are  specified by their numbers via the command line or using the listfile.
       For specifying personal messages the p letter can be added before the message number (e.g.
       p30981).  The  difference  between  bulletins  and personal messages is that axgetmsg will
       remove the personal messages from the BBS after downloading them.

AUTHORIZATION

       After  the  succesful  connect  to  the  BBS  axgetmsg  attempts  to  execute  the  script
       /var/ax25/auth_agent  and  redirects  its stdin and stdout to the BBS. The BBS callsign is
       passed as the first command line argument. The  script  should  take  actions  needed  for
       user's  authorization  to  the  BBS.  When  the script execution fails, axgetmsg continues
       downloading the messages without authorization.

FILES

       /var/ax25/auth_agent
