• BinkD

    From Mikesla@VERT/PARANOR to All on Fri Sep 16 14:09:52 2022
    Hello.

    I'm very new to Synchronet, Fidonet etc, and I have a question about FSXNET, and BinkD.

    I have fidonet working flawlessly, no issues whatsoever but I am trying to get FSXNET installed (I have installed everything properly) but it says I need to be using BinkD.

    I began reading about BinkD on the Synchronet's Wiki, and it appears like I have to install BinkD as entirely new animal.

    I have been browsing Google along Youtube for some hint on how to install it but there is nothing I can follow.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to install BinkD?

    Any help you folks can provide will be appreciated.

    No, you just need a BinkD protocol (BinkP) compatible mailer. Synchronet includes one already: BinkIT. You're likely already using it. It works with fsxNet just fine.
