FIDOGATE is a Fido-Internet gateway and a Fido tosser. It is placed under the GNU General Public License, see COPYING for details.

The gateway converts between the worlds of Fido NetMail/EchoMail (or FTNs, Fido Technology Networks in general) and the UNIX mail/news system. FIDOGATE will convert Fido mail packets to RFC822/1036-style messages and vice versa.

FIDOGATE also includes a complete FIDO mail processor (NetMail/EchoMail tosser), an FTN-FTN gateway (NetMail only), a file processor (TIC file areas) and an Areafix/Filefix.

GIGO is an internet <-> fidonet technology gateway program. GIGO does NOT read your message bases, nor will it touch them. GIGO only understands .PKT files that your echomail and netmail processors create. It will convert these packets into format ready for sending and processing by your UUCP host. For Fidonet bound mail, GIGO will take the mail bundles received from your host system and process them into .PKT files for your mail tosser to distribute. For those of you running OS/2, with a dedicated connection to the internet, an optional add-on for GIGO allows for using NNTP and SMTP instead of using UUCP. If you are not able to run your site full-time, however, I would strongly urge sticking with UUCP.

NOTE: The author is no longer maintaining GIGO. Instead, he has put the source code online for anyone to download and use and has also provided a web-based key generator for anyone who has not registered GIGO to be able to use it. Details are at the web site. You can download the GIGO source code via FTP or via HTML.

This is the old GIGO site (mirror).

If your Fidonet node is one classified as a Hub Coordinator, Net Coordinator, Region Coordinator, Zone Coordinator, or International Coordinator, you will need a program to create and update the segment of the nodelist that you are responsible for. Make Nodelist, v2.51 is just such a program. Each week, lower level coordinators submit updates to their segment of the nodelist to the coordinator above while higher level coordinators receive such updates from lower level coordinators. Make Nodelist automates the changing, submission, receipt, and processing of these segment changes at all levels.

NLTools was written by David Nugent, the (then) Chairman of the FTSC (Fidonet Technical Standards Committee). It is a complete replacement for the commonly used MakeNL and assists coordinators in preparing the Fidonet nodelist. In most cases you should be able to use your MakeNL config files with few, if any, changes. NLTools is Year2000 compliant. David has made important enhancements to the flag section, etc. to meet the future needs of Fidonet. This is a compressed (ZIP) file. Use WinZip or similar utility to extract.

Various programs are used to "compile" the Nodelist into a database usable by front-end mailers and message editors. This is one such compiler (there are others), and includes a program to apply the Nodediff to the Nodelist each week, thereby creating an updated Nodelist.
