       flexd.conf - flexd configuration file.


       flexd.conf file is read by flexd at program startup and is used to modify the behaviour of
       the robot.

       The lines within flexd.conf must either be a comment line, which starts with a  #  in  the
       first column, or one of the commands listed below. Commands and arguments are delimited by
       white space. Arguments can contain white space if they are enclosed in double quotes. Also
       C-style escapes (\n, \x0A, \012 etc.) are parsed within double quotes.

       Available configuration commands are:

       MyCall    <xx#xx>
                     Sets  up  the  callsign  AND ssid you wish to use to connect to your flexnet
                     neighbor for destinations import. Do NOT use an ssid of your ax25  interface
                     which  you'll  be  polling from as you may create a loop between your system
                     and the flexnet neighbor.  An example: MyCall  kb1uuu-13

       PollInterval   <time/secs>
                     This string tells the robot how many times in SECONDS to poll  your  flexnet
                     neighbor  and  import  their destination table. In my production environment
                     300 (or 5 minutes) seemed to be fine. I would NOT go below 180  (3  minutes)
                     as you may create more traffic than needed.

       FlexGate  <xx#xx-##>
                     This  is  the  callsign  of  your flexnet neighbor. The robot will read this
                     callsign-ssid and attempt a connect to  it  every  ##  minutes  assigned  in
                     PollInterval  <time/mins>.  Be  sure you do NOT configure it to connect to a
                     service linked within the flexnet neighbor such  as  a  BBS!  You  will  NOT
                     receive  any  destinations  to  your  system that way and the BBS will think
                     you're attempting a feed.

                     Also note: your FlexNet destination host *must* reside in your uronode.route
                     file  or  else flexd will *not* know the path where to connect and the robot
                     will exit.
