----------------------------------------------------------------------------

02. What Is Binkd?

Binkd is a fidonet mailer working via Internet and using binkp protocol
(FSP-1011). This protocol is also supported by such mailers as Argus
(win32; RitLabs; http://www.ritlabs.com), BForce (unix), Internet Rex
program (DOS/W32/OS2) and BeeMail (win32; Stephen Proffitt, 1:105/10;
http://beemail.gexonline.net/)

Binkd features:
- freeware, open source;
- there are versions for Unix (linux, freebsd, SCO, ...), OS/2 (native
& EMX), Windows NT/2000/XP and Windows 95/98/Me, Windows 3.x, DOS;
- it can work as daemon in Unix and as service in Windows NT/2000/XP,
there is a separate version for working as service in Windows 9x;
- simple TCP-connection (data integrity is supported at TCP level);
- BSO (bink-style outbound);
- LBSO (Long BSO);
- ASO (Amiga-style outbound);
- path translation in ?LO files (it is used when the outbound resides
on a net drive);
- personal fileboxes for each node for the files to send and to receive;
- T-mail-style and The Brake!-style fileboxes are supported;
- translation of a FTN-address into a domain name (*.fidonet.net) is
supported;
- a password file in the style of T-mail is supported starting with
version 0.9.4 and a password file in the style of ifcico starting with
version 1.0;
- file requests using SRIF are supported;
- a flag on receiving files (using a template) may be created;
- a program on receiving files (using a template) may be started;
- receiving files (using a template) may be refused starting with
version 0.9.4;
- working via a HTTP or SOCKS proxy server (starting with version
0.9.3.https);
- password encryption (MD5) starting with 0.9.4 release;
- traffic encryption starting with version 0.9.5;
- the remote node IP-address check for an incoming connection is
supported starting with version 0.9.5.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


03. Binkp Protocol

The name Binkp means Binkd protocol. It is described in FSP-1018
(FIDOnet standard proposal) and port 24554 is assigned for binkp in
RFC-1700 (request for comments, issued by IANA).

The file transfer protocol using two-way TCP connection is developed for
FTN mailer BinkD. Port 24554 is used on default.

There are two versions of the protocol: 1.0 and 1.1. They are backward
compatible. The main difference of version 1.1 is a possibility of making
a FREQ during a session. Besides binkp 1.1 has at present NR option
(non-reliable mode dealing with a non-reliable channel) and ND option (no
dupes mode protecting from repeated file transmission), MD5 (password
hashing), CRYPT (traffic encryption).

Protocol version 1.0 is supported by BinkD, version 1.0 is implemented
in Argus and its clones (Binkp is implemented there with addition of FREQ
processing technique of its own and other changes), in MBSE, Internet Rex,
BForce and others. In Internet Rex (version 2.24 and later) an incompatible
variant of Binkp 1.1 of its own is implemented.

One can find the protocol description in Russian (cp866) here:
http://binkd.grumbler.org/binkp.txt


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


04. What Is fidonet.net Domain and Why Is It Necessary?

'fidonet.net' is the domain registered for FTN-address to Internet
domain name translation. It is used primarily at BinkP connections. The
address 1:2/3.4 is translated to the domain name p4.f3.n2.z1.fidonet.net;
after that BinkD (or another IP mailer) obtains the node IP-address by
means of the operating system. If the domain name exists one can try to set
a connection.

Hence the fidonet.net domain policy was compiled: a domain name in the
fidonet.net zone may be granted to the nodes that are present in the
nodelist, have either a permanent IP address or a domain name and respond
at port 24554 using the BinkP protocol twenty four hours a day.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


05. BinkD Doesn't Connect. What Should I Do?

1. Please check whether the remote node responds at port 24554 using
the 'telnet' command. If a connection is not set check whether your
computer is connected to the net at this moment (using ping command). If
the checks are successful then check BinkD configuration. Increasing the
loglevel to 6 or more can help here.


Here are some examples for node 2:5080/68:

1.1.
(The control characters are removed from the telnet reply and it is
broken down to lines for the sake of convinience)

M:\>ping f68.n5080.z2.fidonet.net

Pinging fido68.imp.uran.ru [195.19.130.68] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 195.19.130.68: bytes=32 time=505ms TTL=122

Reply from 195.19.130.68: bytes=32 time=372ms TTL=122

The node works. Check your BinkD configuration. Maybe the timeout is too
small (it is the time necessary for setting up a connection, it can be
evaluated using the delay before response in telnet).

Another case: telnet connects but ping says "Request timed out".

M:\>ping f68.n5080.z2.fidonet.net

Pinging fido68.imp.uran.ru [195.19.130.68] with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

It means that ICMP messages are forbidden somewhere between your nodes.
That does not influence BinkD performance.



1.2.

M:\>ping f68.n5080.z2.fidonet.net

Unknown host f68.n5080.z2.fidonet.net

Such a reply means that your computer could not find a DNS entry for the
node. Check the DNS configuration in your system. If it is correct make
sure the DNS server works and the remote node address is correct.



1.3.

If ping replies positively but telnet cannot set up a connection it is
possible that binkd is not started at the remote node currently. Try to ask
the node's sysop whether his/her BinkD is started. If it is started and can
connect to other nodes then access to port 25554 is denied by the firewall
of your net. Try to start BinkD via a proxy server (see "How Can BinkD Work
via HTTP-proxy" and "How Can BinkD Work via SOCKS-proxy").


1.4.

M:\>ping -w 5000 f68.n5080.z2.fidonet.net

Pinging fido68.imp.uran.ru [195.19.130.68] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 195.19.130.68: bytes=32 time=3674ms TTL=122
Request timed out.
Reply from 195.19.130.68: bytes=32 time=4232ms TTL=122
Request timed out.

Telnet sometimes connects to port 24554 but more often it does not.


The node works but the link channel between the partners is overloaded or
too slow. Because of that BinkD connects not at every try (some IP packets
are lost) or it does not connect at all (the time to wait for the remote
node reply is too small). You cannot get it over in the first case because
the packets are lost in their way and you cannot improve it. In the second
case one should increase timeouts in the BinkD configuration file (the
values are in seconds):

timeout 60
connect-timeout 300
call-delay 60

If increasing the values does not help then change your uplink.


1.5.
Telnet does not connect to the port 24554 and the remote host does not
reply to ping.

The node does not reply. Possible variants are:

1 - your computer or the remote node is disconnected from the internet at
the moment or routing is corrupt (the line is broken, power supply is
switched off, some of the internet providers carries out maintenance work
etc.) so please make several tries later.

2 - your computer is in Intranet and getting out to the internet is
possible only via a proxy server. See "How Can BinkD Work via HTTP-proxy",
"How Can BinkD Work via SOCKS-proxy".


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


06. How Can BinkD Work via HTTP-proxy?

It is not a rare case when users go out to the internet from their
corporate LAN exclusively via the proxy server based at the only computer
connected to the internet. Thus BinkD cannot make a direct connection to
the remote node and one must use the proxy server. Proxy servers support
was included in versions 0.9.3.https, 0.9.4 and the later ones.

One can use BinkD via a HTTP proxy only if CONNECT host 24554 command
is allowed in the proxy server or the CONNECT command is allowed for all
remote ports. The command is usually used for the secure HTTP protocol
(URLs of the "HTTPS://..." type), it is also known as S-HTTP. Because of
that such a proxy is quite often referred to as a HTTPS proxy.

If BinkD reports of an authorization error then the necessary command
is prohibited in the proxy configuration or it is allowed for some ports
only (usually 443).

Suppose the connected to the Internet computer has the IP address
192.168.0.1 in its LAN and the proxy server at the computer responds on
port 3128. Here is the line in BinkD configuration file necessary for
working via the HTTP proxy.

1. A proxy server without user authorization (no login and password are
demanded):

proxy 192.168.0.1:3128

2. A proxy server with user authorization (it is necessary to type login
and password, e.g. login "user", password "password"):

proxy 192.168.0.1:3128/user/password

3. Microsoft proxy server with NTLM protocol of user authorization (one
must be inside a domain). Suppose login is "user", password is "password",
the user computer is "host" and the domain name is "ntdomain":

proxy 192.168.0.1:3128/user/password/host/ntdomain

If the proxy server administrator has allowed connection only to some
selected ports (usually to port 443) then BinkD reports "Connection
rejected by proxy". Here is an example:

31 Mar 16:48:43 [59987] BEGIN, binkd/0.9.3/SOCKS/HTTPS -p BINKD.CFG
31 Mar 16:48:43 [59987] clientmgr started
+ 31 Mar 16:48:43 [40423] call to 2:5000/44@fidonet
31 Mar 16:48:43 [40423] trying 195.209.235.3, port 24554...
31 Mar 16:48:43 [40423] connected to proxy.osu.ru:24554
31 Mar 16:48:44 [40423] Connection rejected by proxy (HTTP/1.0 403
Forbidden)
? 31 Mar 16:48:44 [40423] unable to connect: {13} Permission denied

In such a case you may try to use http tunnelling for instance with the
help of httport (one can take it at http://www.htthost.com/) or you may
find a node receiving BinkP connections at port 443.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


07. How Can BinkD Work via SOCKS-proxy?

It is not a rare case when users go out to the internet from their
corporate LAN exclusively via the proxy server based at the only computer
connected to the internet. Thus BinkD cannot make a direct connection to
the remote node and one must use the proxy server. Proxy servers support
was included in version 0.9.4 and the later ones.

BinkD works with a SOCKS proxy version 4 and 5. The first one does not
demand an authorization (no login and password), the second one demands it
as a rule.

Suppose the connected to the Internet computer has the IP address
192.168.0.1 in its LAN and the SOCKS server at the computer responds on
port 1080. Here is the line in BinkD configuration file necessary for
working via the SOCKS proxy.

1. A SOCKS server without user authorization (no login and password are
demanded):

socks 192.168.0.1:1080

2. A proxy server with user authorization (it is necessary to type login
and password, e.g. login "user", password "password"):

socks 192.168.0.1:1080/user/password


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


08. IP-Point: How Can I Make BinkD to Get My Mail From My Bossnode
(Uplink)?

Make a poll using the command line option -P:

binkd -P1:2/3 binkd.cfg

Usually they want BinkD to exit after the session is finished. One can
use the command line option -p:

binkd -p -P1:2/3 binkd.cfg

If BinkD does not exit for a long time after the session has been
finished then decrease the value of rescan-delay (and sometimes the value
of timeout).

If BinkD works permanently (e.g. as a Windows service) and you want to
get your mail regularly then you need some additional program or a script.
As an example in DOS, Windows or OS/2 it is enough to execute the command:

cd . >> %outbound%\NNNNMMMM.ilo

where NNNN is the hex net number,
MMMM is the hex node number,
%outbound% is the path to the necessary zone outbound.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


09. "start_file_transfer: .: Permission denied" Error

You get the message when BinkD cannot open a file for sending indicated
in some *.?lo file. Most likely the file has a line containing only "."
because the poll has been made by a command of the type

echo . >> xxxxyyyy.flo

you should change it to "cd . >> xxxxyyyy.flo"


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


10. BinkD/win and Dial-up: Dialing-up and Disconnecting Automatically

The problem is to configure the fidonet box in such a way that BinkD
would initiate a telephone call to your Internet provider, get your mail
and disconnect.

The solutions:

1st Solution

Configure automatic connection and timeout in the dial-up connection
properties (idle time before hanging up). It is convinient to use a
non-standard software for dialing-up (Advanced Dialer and others). You
should start BinkD with a command line option -p periodically (and possibly
-Paddress for BinkD to make a poll to the address).

binkd -p -P1:2/3.4 binkd.cfg


2nd Solution

Use the command line option -p and the batch file where first Remote
Access Service (RAS) is started then BinkD is started and after BinkD exits
RAS is stopped.

Two variants, for Windows NT and for Windows 2000:
=== binkdpoll1.cmd
rasdial Connection
binkd -p binkd.cfg
rasdial Connection /disconnect
===

=== binkdpoll2.cmd
net start "remote access service"
net start "remote access auto service"
binkd -p binkd.cfg
net stop "remote access auto service"
net stop "remote access service"
===

3rd Solution (The Best One For Win9x)

Use the command line options -p and -Paddress and control connection
with a non-standard dial-up software (for example dialerp). This solution
is the most reliable one (especially if the modem connection to your
Internet provider is bad) due to the fact that dialerp can start some
indicated programs at setting the connection. Here is the batch file you
should start in the 'Execute' parameter of the dialerp configuration file:

====
binkd -p -P1:2/3.4 binkd.cfg
dialerp BREAK *
====

The question you may now ask: Where can I take dialerp? The answer is:
Ask the author (Alexander Vedjakin, 2:5020/540) or look for it in fileecho
archives and in ftp/http.


In any case you should set a small value for 'rescan-delay' parameter in
the BinkD configuration file. Binkd would exit faster.

=== binkd.cfg
# Outbound rescans period (sec)
rescan-delay 2
===


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


11. I Have Changed BinkD Configuration File On-The-Fly. When Will It Be
Reloaded?

Starting with the version 0.9.1 BinkD could feel that its configuration
file changed. It exited with code 3 if it had been started with option -C.
Modification time was checked after each ingoing session. Here is the batch
file for starting BinkD versions 0.9.1-0.9.3 and 0.9.4-0.9.6/w32:

====
:aaa
binkd -C binkd.cfg
if errorlevel 4 goto end
if errorlevel 3 goto aaa
:end
====

In the versions 0.9.4/unix and /os2-emx (and in these ones only) BinkD
restarts automatically if it is started with -C command line option.
Besides that starting with version 0.9.4 the files included into the
configuration file with the help of 'include' keyword are tested not only
on incoming sessions but also in every 'rescan-delay' seconds.

If you install BinkD 0.9.4/w32 as a Windows NT service you should use it
with -C command line option. Then BinkD re-reads its configuration file.

Before version 0.9.4 changes in the configuration file were not tested if
BinkD was started in client-only mode (-c command line option).

In the unix versions configuration file is re-read on SIGHUP signal
by the command
kill -HUP `cat /var/run/binkd.pid`

In the version 1.0 configuration file is re-read automatically if
changed. Binkd tests on changes at every 'rescan-delay' seconds.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


12. How Can BinkD Work With T-mail/IP?

There is no way to do it. The protocols differ in essence: BinkD uses
BinkP protocol whereas T-mail/IP uses EMSI etc.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


13. Is There At Least One Log Analyzer Under Unix?

There exist many Perl scripts and several win32 binaries. For example here:

binkdstat 0.1 beta4 Christmas version 6.01.2002
Statistics generator for BinkD
(c) Dmitry Sergienko, 2:464/910@fidonet, dmitry@trifle.net 14.08.2000

You can find several different generators at Nick Soveiko's site:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


14. BinkD Connects Too Slowly (~20 Seconds) Though I Have a High-Speed
LAN

It is possible that 'backresolv' parameter is on (for logging the remote
host domain name) and DNS is not configured.

The simplest solution is to comment the 'backresolv' out in the
configuration file. Configuring DNS is a more complex solution.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


15. Why Does BinkD Not Understand Command Line Options When I Start It
From inetd?

You should use the program name as the first parameter in inetd.conf (it
may be any string for BinkD), the second and the following parameters
are the command line options (-iqs etc.) and the last parameter is the
configuration file full path:

binkp stream tcp nowait root /usr/fido/binkd binkd -isq /usr/fido/binkd.cfg

If you do not use -q option then you should switch console output off
(comment 'printq', 'percents', 'conlog' out).

16. Can One Make a File Request From BinkD?

It's a piece of cake! BinkD supports WAZOO FREQ.

To request files from a remote system it is necessary to create a file
of type nnnnmmmm.REQ and to put it in the outbound directory near *.?ut and
*.?lo files. But *.REQ files do not initiate BinkD to call a link so to
make a FREQ it is necessary to make a poll.

One can configure BinkD for calling an external file request processor
supporting SRIF (FSC-0086) for receiving and handling FREQs in BinkD. Please
read the "!SRIF.TXT" file and the comment to 'exec' in the configuration
file.

Here are the examples of lines in configuration file for DOS-based OS
and for *nix (you should use regular expressions in the latter case for
BinkD to match both upper-case and lower-case letters, e.g. both *.REQ and
*.req):

exec "\\ftn\\allfix\\allfix.exe RP -SRIF *S" *.req

exec "/ftn/bin/tmafreq *S" *.[rR][eE][qQ]

The following file request processors are compatible with BinkD (but
they are not the only ones, any other one supporting SRIF will do):

Allfix by Harms Software Engineering: it is a fileecho processor with
built-in file request processor and it has versions for DOS and OS/2;

ViReq by Michael Haase (2:2432/280): a specialized FREQ processor for
Windows, it is distributed by Michael Massenberg (2:2411/505) via modem,
ISDN and Fido-over-IP.
