• Free nodes?

    From Jeff Smith@1:14/5 to All on Thu Apr 4 11:24:36 2019
    Hello There,

    Sadly, I remember once knowing the answer. :-)

    Lately I have been getting "400 sorry, no more free nodes. Try again later" rather frequently from BBBS. I currently run the 22 node version of BBBS.
    I am thinking I am just getting spambot'ed. Short of restarting BBBS, is
    there a way to clear the nodes (I.E delete node busy files) without
    restarting BBBS?

    Umm... Yeah, me too.

    I am using iptables to manage inbound connections and have for some time now. The free nodes issue has just been a recent occurrence I.E., the last couple weeks.
