PASSWD.SYS (\FBB\SYSTEM). This file is in SYSTEM directory. The first line in this file is the generic password. That is, this password will be used for all sysops that do NOT have a special password of his own. Be adviced to change this to your own, secret password ! The next line is a special password for one special sysop. In this case LA6CU. The two first numbers correspond to the same "security-numbers" in INIT.SRV (check this). So in this case of LA6CU, I will have the security- number 69 before a successful SYS-command, and 1023 after. In the next line the numbers for LA6IM is 123 and 1023. jkshdfkjasdfuweiuryiusdfashdfabsmfzmxncvbiouweqyriuyweruyasjhf LA6CU 69 1023 jkasdhfiuweyiruyasidkasfuiweriuoasdfkjlahsdfjlha LA6IM 123 1023 uiwyejhaskjdfhasdfiuyaiuowyeruakjsdfhkjahfdlkja Each line in PASSWD.SYS can have a maximum of 255 characters. For the first tests with the BBS-program, you will only need the first line. Write whatever you like in it, and have a copy of it an paper. And let nobody else see that paper (hi). To get priviliges as a remote sysop, you must first have been declared as a sysop with the EU-command. Set flag S for Sysop. Next you must send the command SYS to the BBS. The BBS will answer like: LA1B-5> 12 53 45 28 92  You will have to respond by 5 characters, the 5 corresponding to the 5 numbers you have received from the BBS. The extra numbers in brackets, the , is for an automatic MD2 password decoding system, which has been implemented in TPK and some other terminal-programs (I believe..). You may ignore the numbers in the brackets. Comment-lines are allowed.
