WINLINK RMS RELAY - MESH/NETWORK POST OFFICE MESSAGE SYNCHRONIZATOIN

This is the one that we have been waiting for!
 

RMS Relay version 3.0.32.1 is available for testing.  To get the update, check the option on the Settings/Site properties screen to install field test versions.  Note: Beta test versions are more likely to have bugs than released versions.  If you're not comfortable with testing new software, please don't install beta versions.

 

Changes since version 3.0.32.0:

 

* Added automatic, background synchronization of Network Post Office Servers. To enable synchronization, click Settings/Synchronize Post Office Servers.  See the Help file for details.

 

RMS Relay can operate as a Network Post Office Server.  In this mode, messages are stored and exchanged between Winlink clients such as Winlink Express and POP and SMTP servers.  Most commonly, Winlink post office servers are used on MESH networks, but they may be used on any TCP/IP network including the Internet.

 

If there are multiple post office servers on a network, RMS Relay can be configured to synchronize the servers.  Once set up, messages added to one post office server will be replicated on the other servers, and when messages are picked up on a server, the other synchronized servers are notified.

 

Post office synchronization may operate in one of two modes: Standard and Distributor.

 

In Standard Mode, events occurring on the server are reported to all other stations set up to receive updates.  When other stations report events occuring on them, those events are acted on by the receiving station.

 

In Distributor Mode, the station does everything it does in Standard Mode, but, in addition, when it receives reports of events from another server, it distributes (reflects) those events to all of the stations it's synchronizing with (except for the station that reported the event).

Program(s)

RMS Relay serves as the "Post Office" - should be installed on a computer dedicated to the hosting node.  It is set up as a "Stand Alone" Network Post Office station.  It's address will be that of the computer that is attached to the node.

WINLINK Express is used to access the Pos Office in the Telnet Post Office session mode.
