2. Setting up SBBSECHO

2.1 Running ECHOCFG

To setup SBBSECHO, (the program that tosses the mail between Synchronet and
the Argus Mailer) you need to invoke the following command line in a DOS box
from within the C:\SBBS\EXEC\ directory.
ECHOCFG C:\SBBS\CTRL\SBBSECHO.CFG
Not that it really needs repeating, but be sure to insert your drive/path
as necessary.
Upon invoking this command, you will be presented with a screen similar
to Figure 10.

 Figure 10.
Make sure the first option, Mailer Type is set to Binkley/FLO.

2.2 Nodes Setup

Now go to Nodes...  Here you will add 1:229/2000 by pressing the INSert key.
For setup here, refer to Figure 11 below.  [ Note:  Change 1:229/2000 in all cases for the
Hub system you have been assigned. ]

Figure 11.
Address:  1:229/2000
AreaFix Password: PASSWORD -- This is the password that you 
		will use on my system.  It is case sensitive.   [password is 
		not the same as PASSWORD ]  You will need to mail 
		his password along with a session password for Argus  to your 
		assigned Hub.  Discussed later in the Argus Setup section.)  
		If you wish to use a packet password, you may also send that as 
		well although there really is no need for it.
		 
Status:  None
Direct:  Yes
Route To:  1:229/2000

You will repeat INSerting nodes as below.
For all these addresses Direct will be No.

2.3 Paths and Filenames

Refer to Figure 12 below for path configuration.  Again, be sure to substitute
your SBBS directory (C:\SBBS\) for the first part of the path.  The \ARGUS\INSEC\
and \ARGUS\OUT\ need to remain the same.  You can place any path and filename for
the Log File that you want.  [ Note:  At all times make sure you substitute the correct path
wherever paths are required.]
