      Re-parse the "TCP" section before sending (optional) Prompt · a355fdf9
      Rob Swindell authored
      We need to re-parse the default sexpots.ini [TCP] section for every new session (when using the Prompt feature) or else there's no way to connect to the default host.
      
      Also, telnet to be enabled or disabled (e.g. by setting Telnet=false) in any [TCP] or [TCP:x] section to support a mix of Telnet and non-Telnet hosts.

      Rob Swindell authored
      Also log a warning if a control character is received in response to the prompt, or log a notice if there's a timeout waiting for a response to the prompt. Change the non-control character response value to a debug-level log message.

      Optionally send a prompt to connected user · 4c33738e
      Rob Swindell authored
      Wait up to 10 seconds for a single-char reply to the prompt and if a non-control character was received, use the [TCP:x] (x is the character sent by the user) from the sexpots.ini for the Host and Port values to connect to.
      
      An experimental feature for Nelgin.

      Basic PETSCII output column/line counting in putmsg() · 09a32c0d
      Rob Swindell authored
      When printing a PETSCII Sequence (.seq) file, count the lines/rows and columns similar to how we would if we were using outchar() (but we don't, we use the lower-level outcom() to bypass any translations).
      
      This is related to issue #325:
      PETSCII seq files seem to display just fine, the problem I saw was with the auto-pausing (e.g. before a screen-clear) after displaying them.

      Add the 'O' (post using real name) restriction flag. · 927a1494
      Rob Swindell authored
      Oh, QWKnet nodes ('Q' restricted accounts) are impacted by this restriction
      since the poster's name isn't taken from the user account anyway.

      Handle duplicate names and aliases better · 55be2129
      Rob Swindell authored
      So some cute user (mine@demon.com) created a new user account on Vertrauen with the alias and real name of "Rob Swindell". Funny.
      
      Now, duplicate user aliases are already and always forbidden (even those that just vaguely match an existing alias) - everyone expects those to be unique. And we already forbid new user real names to match an existing user alias (check_name() enforces this and we use that when checking new user real names too), however, nothing prevented a new user account's alias from matching another existing user's real name. And this is a problem:
      
      1. This new/fake user could post a message or send an email/netmail and it would appear to possibly come from the other/original user (we do have options to send mail and post messages using real names)
      
      2. Received email for real names is supported and if enabled, this second account could be used to intercept mail for the original/first account if it was receiving mail for the original/real user's real name.
      
      So disallowing a new user's real name to match an existing alias fixes one problem. 
      However, systems *can* be configured to allow duplicate real names (which is convenient for QWKnet accounts, for example) and so we needed another solution for that problem: meet the 'O' restriction. This restriction flag will prevent a user account from posting messages no sub-boards that require real names. New user accounts that have a duplicate real name (the same as another user account's real name), will automatically be assigned the 'O' restriction flag. Systems that don't allow duplicate real names wouldn't have this issue in the first place.
      
      Scripts that allow the creation of new user accounts might need some updating to match this security logic.

      Fix "Username already taken." validation error (could not happen) · 21b8b2c2
      Rob Swindell authored
      The system.check_name() check *also* verifies that the username is not
      already taken, so we must perform the matchuser() check first in order
      to get the appropriate error message here when trying to use an alias
      (username) that's already taken.

      UTF-8 encode/decode support, from martylake · 8df9adb1
      Rob Swindell authored
      Based largley on martylake's provided patch set. By default, assumes
      all IRC messages are UTF-8 encoded and will translate to CP-437 if
      appropriate or send as UTF-8 if the user's terminal supports it.
      Set utf8_support=false in the [irc] section of your ctrl/modopts.ini
      file if you wish to disable this behavior.

      Provide more help for the "Access to Sub-directories" feature · 3a1929b8
      Rob Swindell authored
      This is an experimental feature that's been in the code for quite a while without any supporting help/docs (there was the original commit message, I'm sure). I'm not sure how much value this feature is without providing automatic access to the *files* within the sub-directories, but there you have it.

      Add support for web request path aliases (defined in web_alias.ini) · f2858ee6
      Rob Swindell authored
      Similar to the ctrl/ftpalias.cfg file, the new ctrl/web_alias.ini file (optional) can be used to map a portion (the first portion, only) of a web request path to a different physical or virtual path. For example, I'm using it to map:
      /Synchronet/ = /files/main/sbbs/
      for filebase access to my main->sbbs directory of Vertrauen's filebase using a /Synchronet/* web request (i.e. for slightly prettier or shorter custom URLs, if desired).

      Add direct filebase access from the web server (optional) · 1ab2956b
      Rob Swindell authored
      By setting SCFG->File Options->Web File Virtual Path Prefix to something (e.g. "/files/"), all HTTP or HTTPS requests to the Synchronet Web Server with request paths beginning with this prefix will be interpreted as filebase access requests (with full access control enforcement). This is configured here (in SCFG) rather than, say, the [web] section of sbbs.ini, because I have plans for the terminal server to use this prefix to generate Web-URLs for files to display or email to users.
      
      Currently, only requests to *files* (for download) are supported (no index generation, file information, etc. and definitely no upload support). Full access control (using HTTP auth, not cookies) is used for libraries and directories with controlled access. Credits are deducted and awarded and uploaders are notified of downloads, as one would expect. Requests to any dynamic-web-content files (e.g. .SSJS, .XJS, etc.) will be treated as static file download requests (no script will be executed).
      
      I'm reusing the same virtual path parsing logic from the FTP server (moved to the userdat lib), so the virtual path to a file for download would be, for example, http://yourdomain/files/lib/dir-code/filename.ext
      
      The main motivation for this feature is: FTP-links in email and web pages are just not useful to many users these days and I don't think that sysops should have to rely on a SSJS web UI (e.g. ecWebv4, cool as it is), to provide web-access to the filebases. Using this feature, you can share simpler/shorter web links to your files that will be more enduring.

      BBS files
        DOS
