There following options can be configured.

Domain Name

If you have a domain name associated with your BBS place it here.

The FTP server resolves your configured BBS domain upon start up to get both the IPV4 and IPV6 address. It will also perform this procedure every 1 hour so if a dynamic IP changes it will be detected.

Max BBS Nodes

This defines the max number of nodes you will allow at one time. However, there is slightly more to consider.

BBS Nodes can be spawned by any number of built in Mystic servers, or also from external sources for things such as dial-up modems, local logins from the console, etc. The max BBS nodes is a limit to the sum of all possible ways Mystic can accept BBS node connections.

In the Servers > Configure servers configuration you will see options to modify or create TELNET, RLogin, and SSH servers. You can create any number of these servers on any ports, and each one can have a limit of the number of connections they will accept. If you want to have 20 nodes but 3 of them available by SSH and 17 by Telnet, you would configure a Telnet server for 17 max connections and a SSH server for 3 max connections and set your Max BBS nodes to 20 or more.

The settings do not have to add up to Max BBS nodes. If all BBS nodes are busy when a user connects, the user will simply be displayed a message informing them that all nodes are busy. This message will either simply be the word BUSY printed on their screen when a connection is made or Mystic will display the contents of a file called busy.txt created and saved in your mystic\data directory.

This means you can setup a 20 node BBS and then set up 3 different Telnet server and a SSH server all of which each allow 20 connections, and Mystic will allow any combination to fill up the BBS nodes.
