MBSE BBS Setup - BBS Setup - Security Limits.

Security limits, introduction.

Every BBS needs several security limits to make a difference between several user groups. These are the twits, regular users and (co-)sysops. If you have a donation system you will probably have more different levels. Every level a user can have must have a record in this file. To operate MBSE BBS you need at least 3 levels, twit with level 0, new users with the level as setup in 1.7.1, and the sysop level as setup in 1.5.4 As said, for special usergroups you can add more levels as you need. If a user logs in and has a level in the userbase you didn't define here, he won't be able to login. Even the twit level needs some access to be able to throw him out in a nice but friendly way, give him 5 minutes, 1 file to download and no more then 1 Kb so he will understand he is not wanted. Some defaults are installed during first bbs setup.


Limits setup

Access level    The access level value.
Maximum time    The maximum time each day. If set to zero, the user gets 24 hours a day.
