axgetmsg - download selected messages from F6FBB BBS


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


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


-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

-d dir Spepcify the destination directory for storing messages.

-v Verbose operation.

-D Display debugging information.


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.


After the successful 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.
