Available Servers

This section of the Mystic BBS Configuration System allows a Sysop to enable/disable and set specific configuration settings for variety of different servers Mystic BBS offers.




Here's the view of the 'Available Servers' menu from a fresh install of Mystic showing several servers ready for configuration.

If you wish to insert or delete a server(s) from this list use the / key to open the command list.

You can create any number of servers, and all settings are completely independent of each other. You can even create multiple servers of the same type! You can have IPV4 on one adapter while IPV6 runs on another NIC, for example. One telnet server on port 2323 and one on port 23, etc.

It's also worth taking the time to read and understand a discussion about Max BBS Nodes found in the General Options section of the 'Servers' menu.

Important:

  • When any of the servers are set to 'Active' it's the Mystic Internet Server (MIS) that is actually responsible for running each server instance. MIS is something you will want to have running at all times to ensure you, your users and other BBS can all connect to your Mystic BBS via the Internet.
  • A quick reminder too that if you want any of the Mystic servers to be reachable from the Internet you are going to need to open and set port forwarding on your router to allow for incoming connections from the WAN to the computer running MIS within your home LAN.

In subsequent sections lets explore each server separately and look at what configuration options are available for each one.

Telnet

Mystic BBS offers a Telnet server that users of the BBS can connect to. The default port for Telnet is 23 but this can be set to something different if you wish.

You may wish to check out the Internet Related menu commands for more info about outbound Telnet connections.

ID

Sets a protocol ID shown in the Mystic Internet Server 'status' screen. Best to leave these as default.

Adapter Type

Use IPv4, IPv6 or dual stack? Options are IPV4, IPV6, IPV4+IPV6

IPV4 Adapter

Specify network interface for IPv4 adapter. Leave as 0.0.0.0 if you wish Mystic to accept ANY connection on a specified port for all IPv4 adapters.

IPV6 Adapter

Specify network interface for IPv6 adapter. Leave as :: if you wish Mystic to accept ANY connection on a specified port for all IPv6 adapters.

Port

Set which port to use for new connections on this server. Default is 24554.

Max Allowed

Set maximum concurrent connections allowed for this server. This setting is also associated with Max BBS Nodes found in the General Options section of the 'Servers' menu.

Auto IP Ban

This option will automatically BAN an IP if they connect to a server more than X times in X seconds. The default recommendation is 4 connections in 120 seconds.

Country Block

Use IP2Location country blocking? Options are 'Yes' or 'No'.

Mystic offers country blocking using a local database the Sysop installs from the Internet. Read more about this feature in the Edit Country Blocking section of the Wiki.

Send Blocked

Send BLOCKED message to client when blocked? Options are 'Yes' or 'No'.

Time Out

Define an inactivity timeout period in seconds. Default is 30 and does not usually need to be changed.

Force CRAM-MD5

Refuse non-MD5 authorisations from systems attempting to connect? Default is No and does not usually need to be changed.

Allow UnSecure

Allow mail/files to be received from unsecured EchoMail nodes? Default is Yes.

We strongly urge you to leave this set to Yes. Doing so will allow unknown systems you do not have specified as EchoMail nodes to connect to your BinkP server and send Netmail to you. MUTIL will only toss Netmail from packets/files received and deposited in the Inbound Unsecured directory you will have specified. If you set this to No you are in effect only allowing traffic to your BinkP server from systems you have defined as known EchoMail nodes.

File Conflicts

This setting guides the BinkP server on how to handle files being sent to it that already exist in your Inbound Echomail file path. Options are to rename or temporarily skip on filename conflicts. Default is rename. This is a good option and ensures files can be accepted even if something of the same name exists.

Allow SSL/TLS

The Mystic BinkP server (and Fidopoll) support opportunistic SSL (TLS v1.2+) using a proprietary extension of the BINKP protocol. This means that it will only work with other Mystic BBS clients and servers, but the Mystic authors plans to document the extension and send it to the authors of other mailers in hopes that it can be standardized. The SSL/TLS setting is experimental at this stage and also requires you have installed Cryptlib - you have been warned.

Options for this setting are:

  • No : BINKP server will not offer SSL extension at all
  • Yes : BINKP server WILL offer SSL extension optionally
  • Forced : BINKP server will refuse all connections not using SSL

SSH

Mystic BBS offers a SSH server that enables users to connect using securely using SSH to your BBS. The default port for SSH is 22 but this can be set to something different if you wish.

In order to use SSH and SSL variations of servers, you will need to install Cryptlib. This is pretty basic in Linux and even easier to do in Windows because it requires simply dropping a file into the library path or root Mystic directory.

You may wish to check out the Internet Related menu commands for more info about outbound SSH connections.

The SSH server configuration screen is displayed below.

Additional Notes

  • 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.
  • The FTP server prints if it cannot resolve domain IP on startup or when refreshing the IP addresses, and will also print the data port range the FTP server uses (which must be allowed through your firewall).
  • Files uploaded by FTP import DIZ descriptions into the BBS using ANSI, Pipe, Wildcat, PCBoard, or WWIV colors, like other areas of the BBS.
  • The FTP server allows files to be deleted via FTP from Mystic's file bases, if the logged in user meets the Sysop ACS requirements for that base. The server also logs when a Sysop deletes a file from a filebase via FTP.

Setting either of the values to a zero will disable this feature. Refer also to the IP Blocks + Exceptions and Edit IP Blacklist and Edit IP Whitelist sections of the Wiki.

HTTP

Mystic BBS now offers a basic HTTP server.

Here's what is known thus far as quoted in WHATSNEW.TXT

 + MIS now has a basic HTTP server.  The server can be created in the server
   editor within the configuration.  A webroot path must be defined, which
   points to a directory where your website files and configuration will
   exist.  For example, if you set webroot to c:\mystic\webroot\ then you
   will need to create two subdirectories under it (cfg and www):

      c:\mystic\webroot\cfg\
      c:\mystic\webroot\www\

   In the www folder will be where you place your website files.  The CFG
   folder will hold various configuration values for the web server in the
   future.  Note this is a very barebones server at this point only really
   capable of serving basic websites, but I intend to work on it further as
   I find time.

The default port for HTTP is 80 but this can be set to something different if you wish.

The HTTP server configuration screen is displayed below.
