BPQ Chat Server Notes

Custom Channels

It is possible to add a shortcut command to your node to directly put users into a specific predefined chat topic channel on the chat servers.

So instead of having to join General first and type /topic, it is possible to just type ‘mychat’ from your node

All it requires is a line added to the config and a reboot.

How To:

Find the APPLICATION definitions in bpq32.cfg

Take a new number (less than 32) that isnt already used by previous APPLICATION declerations

MYCHAT can be anything you specifically want.

That is all there is to it.

Additionally:

To make the application a node entry in the table for users to connect to, add a callsign, alias and netrom quality:
