    The RSS list page is pretty bland, so we can make a few changes so it will fit our default theme at least.

    In rss.ssjs, change these lines:

    ---start code---

    if(channel==undefined) {
    writeln('<html>');
    writeln('<body>');
    writeln('<h1>' + system.name + " News (RSS) Channels" +
    '</h1>');
    writeln('<ul>');
    for(c in channel_list)
    writeln('<li>'
    + channel_list[c].name.link(link_root +
    "?channel=" + channel_list[c].name));
    writeln('</ul>');
    writeln('</body>');
    writeln('</html>');
    exit();
    }

    ---end code---

    to:

    ---start code---

    if(channel==undefined) {
    if(do_header)

    I get an error after this line:

    !JavaScript c:\sbbs\web\html\rss.ssjs line 42: ReferenceError:
    do_header is not defined



    Oops! Add:

    load("../web/lib/template.ssjs");


    Under:

    load("sbbsdefs.js");



    so it'd be like line 8 or so.. :)

    the do_stuff is all defined in the general template.ssjs.

    Sorry about that..

    Actually that line is located further down... Does that make a
    difference?

    I remmed out the proper code /* */ And pasted in your code... but I
    don't see any diff.

    Nope, I just grouped it with the other load()

    Well thats no fun. It should be something like:

    http://eldritch.darktech.org/rss.ssjs


    I can't seem to connect to your site to take a peek. I get connection
    timed out. :( I guess you could view source and compare or something
    though..

    Also, I am working with rss.ssjs v1.19 in case that is different.

    loading twice doesn't bolix anything? I have it in there in both
    places.

    That's sort of what I expected. You seem to understand javascript very
    well.

    This is a plague. I can load my web page but no one else. telnet etc
    works... I have a router and I feel confident [1] it's configured
    correctly.

    1.15 here. I guess I should snag the latest and greatest...

    Hmm.. actually, the second one only gets loaded if the:

    if(http_request.query["item"]) {

    happens..

    Placing it in the beginning makes it global to the whole script, so in
    theory one could just comment/delete the second one.

    Dynamic DNS stuff isn't getting updated with your current/correct

    Right now I don't run an updater, but Comcast only changes my IP like
    once every 3 months or so..

    This has been going on for sometime. PLUS I use the sync tool for
    updating bnb.synchro.net

    nada

    I am oing to contact Charter and see if they have started blocking any
    ports.

    This has worked in the past, AND the said they don't block ports.

    Last straw will be to make this machine a DMZ... sigh

    I have all of the required BBS ports.[1] They all point to the same
    (internal) address. Telnet works as does FTP (at least to me) The web
    interface works locally (using the bnb.synchro.net address).

    That address should have to go out of my machine to the synchro.net
    DNS server, right?

    It's not short-circuited via the HOSTS file. So, unless it's being cut
    off someplace else... I can't explain what I see... Duece?


    [1]
    As I first configured them:
    http://webpages.charter.net/jking5150/IMAGES/routertable-1.png
    I tried a second approach, being more explicit:
    http://webpages.charter.net/jking5150/IMAGES/routertable-2.png
    And for those unbelievers...

    (at least to me) isnt good enough. as i said before, it is possible your isp BLOCKS these ports. did you try running them on other ports and having a friend [dont try it yourself, that wont help] try to connect?

    Quite right. It's looking like ports maybe closed at Charter.


    BTW, how can I access my web pages FTP, and no one else can?

    C:\Documents and Settings\-oblivious->ftp bnb.synchro.net
    Connected to bnb.synchro.net.
    Connection closed by remote host.

    that's your address right? is your ftp on another port?

    i'm connected to your telnet port with no problems.
