MBSE BBS Setup - File Echo's Setup - File Groups.


File echo groups are to logically divide your file echo's for different file distribution networks. This screen also has a lot of fields that are needed for the auto area create. When a new area is created a bbs download area is made and a new tic area record is made. It makes sense to select the groups by uplink and area file that is available for that file distribution network. By doing that downlinks can connect areas that are not yet connected at your bbs but are available from your uplink. If you are connected to the filegate then there is one area file for all distribution groups. You must then create a file group for each distribution group, ie. Fidonet, SDS etc. The name of that group must exactly match the comment field in the group in this setup.
