    Just a feature request. The DOS BBSes had it.

    But do you actually have a use for it? I have (and continue to collect) plenty of Synchronet feature requests. Please only make requests for things that would actually get used and provide some kind of better sysop or user experience.

    You didn't answer his question. WHY?

    That is/was a mailer (FTN stuff) protocol. I'm not sure it even applies
    to an actual BBS login.

    Why would you need that? That's what he's asking. When you ask for a
    new "feature", you must have something in mind as to WHY you want/need
    it.

    What's your BBS name/address again?

    How about an IEMSI system for logging in?

    Why?

    While we're at it, how about adding support for EBCDIC output instead of ASCII? Someone might want to log in with some old 1960s IBM teleprinter or something.

    That is true. You asked me what my website was, and I answered you.
    What does "what DM does" have to do with any of that?

    Right. Okay.

    I promise you that you don't need IEMSI to run SBBS on Linux.

    Nulls. I'm using a Silent 700 printing terminal and it needs nulls, or I
    lose the first three or for characters while the print head returs.

    (Yes, kidding, but it was a problem for me when John Lorance removed null support from Quarkware -- in 1984)

    Wow. You are so right. It's been decades since I had to think about nulls for linefeeds.

    $ The Millionaire $

    I know I'm gonna regret this, but way IEMSI. That was designed for the front end mailers to talk to the bbs when mail arrived. Of course the users could take advantage of it if they were using a IEMSI terminal. That is old arcitucture. We have RLogin now, plus other protocols that are way better than IEMSI, and if set up in your terminal correctly, you don't have to enter a thing, bam, you are logged in, just like IEMSI.

    Stop living in the past, Synchronet is miles ahead of what we used to have. Embrace the future, and forget the past.

    Why?

    Just a feature request. The DOS BBSes had it.

    By "The DOS BBSes" you mean Renegade and Telegard and RemoteAccess, right? Because that's the only ones I remember that had IEMSI built in. PCBoard and Probard had modules available written by 3rd parties for them. There was even a PPE for PCBoard that checked to see if the IEMSI user was using a cracked copy of Terminate!


    Do you even know what IEMSI is? Do you have an IEMSI terminal you're planning on using? I'm willing to bet $1,000,000 there's no such terminal in the apple app store for your iPad.


    The only modern BBS that has IEMSI support built-in right now is MBSE. If you really need it, I'd suggest trying that software.
