BPQ RF/MESH Chat server

I was looking for an easy, and simple, way for local packet users to join in on a chat server over MESH.     
there's probably a way with MESH Chat, but Linux is far above my understanding.

BPQ offers a RF Chat Server.    if you're running BPQ, add this to your telnet port

 USER=ANON,pass,,chat

users on RF connect to your BPQ Chat Server using the appropriate callsign

MESH clients can use any telnet program..  I use BPQTermTCP      10023 is defined as my BPQ telnet port

when connected, enter your callsign at the 'user' prompt
enter 'pass' as the password.

you're automatically connected to the BPQ Chat server along with local packet users.

Hi Richard,

I'd sure be interested in setting something like this up here.  Would you be willing to elmer me on this?  I'm not familiar with the BPQ stuff.

Packet chat <=> Mesh Chat

Richard: I'm running several instances of W7HEN-chat on a few nodes here in the LV metro area (thru Potosi). On Jan 3rd in our chat (after I had provided Trevor's URL etc), another LV mesh/BPQ user KF7PSM wrote: "I'll research and see if there is a way to take a channel on the packet chat and push it to the mesh chat with a bridge type client. That would be cool to connect a channel to uhf packet so everyone can be connected. Old school meets new school!". You might check with Peter directly and see what he's accomplished.

ps: I do see your local advertised mesh service but, sorry, I know nothing of BPQ myself.

Don,

Don,

Peter and I have talked about this a few times.   unfortunately I know little about Linux and he has little interest with Windows.   BPQ was the easiest work around to join RF packet users with MESH users.    by the way, all programs BPQ offers for Windows, John has a similar program that runs under Linux.

packet users connect to KE7XO-6 on any of the frequencies Rick (k7fyi), Peter (kf7psm) and I monitor. (we use AGWPE / BPQ / UZ7HO to share RF frequencies over the MESH)

MESH users can use any telnet program to connect to port 10023 on my MESH system.    that will automatically route you to the BPQ Chat hub.
