Serial port activity?
#8
Okay, things look pretty good here.

I updated the firmware - the default setting for S30 was 5 mins (as you mentioned)
and that should be fine.

I logged in and deliberately set up the same scenario that led me to ask for this update.

I went to the file download area, batch marked a bunch of files, set them to download,
then walked away (actually went and watched some Netflix). Normally, when the file
download ends, the BBS software will report success and ask the caller to hit <return>.

In this case (and what happened with a caller) was that they weren't there to hit the
<return> key. So the BBS software just keeps asking for the <return> key endlessly.

Now, I always include a "IF TIME_EXCEEDED" snippet of code in all my scripts but it
doesn't seem to want to kick in here, for some odd reason. (still looking into that)

But...this time....when I came back about 15 minutes later, the BBS had returned to
its' normal "waiting on a caller" screen, ready to answer. SyncTerm, which I had used
to call in with was still showing a screen full of "hit <return> please" 's but when I did,
it popped a message up saying we were disconnected.

Success! Smile

I'll keep monitoring it of course but it looks like this problem is solved.

Thanks Jim!
