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.
