TIC Support

ENiGMA½ supports FidoNet-Style TIC file attachments by mapping TIC areas to local file areas.

Under a given node defined in the ftn_bso config section in config.hjson (see BSO Import/Export), TIC configuration may be supplied:

{
  scannerTossers: {
    ftn_bso: {
      nodes: {
        "46:*": {
          packetPassword: mypass
          encoding: cp437
          archiveType: zip
          tic: {
            password: TESTY-TEST
            uploadBy: Agoranet TIC
            allowReplace: true
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

You then need to configure the mapping between TIC areas you want to carry, and the file base area and storage tag for them to be tossed to. Optionally you can also add hashtags to the tossed files to assist users in searching for files:

ticAreas: {
    agn_node: {
        areaTag: msgNetworks
        storageTag: msg_network
        hashTags: agoranet,nodelist
    }
}

Multiple TIC areas can be mapped to a single file base area.

Example Configuration

An example configuration linking file base areas, FTN BSO node configuration and TIC area configuration.

fileBase: {
    areaStoragePrefix: /home/bbs/file_areas/

    storageTags: {
        msg_network: "msg_network"
    }

    areas: {
        msgNetworks: {
            name: Message Networks
            desc: Message networks news & info
            storageTags: [
                "msg_network"
            ]
        }
    }
}

scannerTossers: {
    ftn_bso: {
        nodes: {
            "46:*": {
                packetPassword: mypass
                encoding: cp437
                archiveType: zip
                tic: {
                    password: TESTY-TEST
                    uploadBy: Agoranet TIC
                    allowReplace: true
                }
            }
        }
    }
}


ticAreas: {
    agn_node: {
        areaTag: msgNetworks
        storageTag: msg_network
        hashTags: agoranet,nodelist
    }
    agn_info: {
        areaTag: msgNetworks
        storageTag: msg_network
        hashTags: agoranet,infopack
    }
}
