Unique Connect Text

Unique Connect Text Per Port

CTEXT is read from files, with names of format PortnCTEXT.txt, where n is the port number. So for port 4 the filename is Port4CTEXT.txt. These are read from the same directory as bpq32.cfg. They are read when BPQ starts but can be re-read using the Node command GETPORTCTEXT so you can change the text without starting the node. Remember that on Linux names are case sensitive.

The file is sent to the user as input without any format change. Some clients, such as Winlink Express, don’t treat the normal Linux line terminator of LF as a new line, so if you are running on Linux you are best off creating the files with an editor that can write the normal Windows line terminator CR LF.
