BbRemote. ( 19:39:09 SatApr 27 2002 )

If I was to use the BbRemote feature....

1. Would all my members have to update their bookmarks..

2. Would I have to have my PC on 24/7.
And if my PC went down for any reason would people still be able to reach my board.

Sorry to bug you but i'm thinking of doing it ya see....

And I don't quite understand it.

Cheers....:thumb:

I don't I can answer that for you wellmashed but rest assured BbBoy can and gladly will answer that when he is on next. I think it is meant to run off of like webspace-and I don't think they would have to readjust their bookmarks at all-but I don't think it is something you run off your own home PC-more like a script you add to your site that makes it more seamless a intergration. :smile:

BbBoy can clarify all this though when he checks in later. :thumb:

Well, I did this. To tell you the truth, I didn't see anything different. Of Course, I probably did it wrong LOL.

Yup, BbRemote is a script which you can run on your own web server. Your normal board will still work, but you can give your users the URL to the script on your server, and your board will come up. That's all it is basically. :smile: If they still go to your bb.bbboy.net URL, then they'll still get your board.

Re: BbRemote. ( 23:35:51 SatApr 27 2002 )

But what I want to know is do I need to have it running on my own PC...
I do not have a seperate server that I can leave running 24/7 so does this mean that if I do it I would need to run the server from my own PC 24/7.

Because basically I want my url to be totally detached from bb.bbboy because of reasons we have talked about before and as you know I have allready tried a redirect service but it won't work due to 3rd party cookies.

The nature of my board means that sometime something will come up that really shouldn't be linked to a certain site and therefore I would have to edit out the link.

I want to avoid having to do that if possible.

So I guess what I am asking if this really needs to be run from my PC or can it be directed through maybe a web site of mine even if the website is just one of the free ones like the place I am using at the moment to host my images.

Bottom line is how can I detach my URL from your network so that you don't get any hassle from anyone if something sneaks through that is not appropriate for your legal standing.

Don't get me wrong...If this cannot be done then I will do the editing...

I hope this sounded right because I know what i'm trying to say myself.....:biggrin:

I'll have to let BbBoy answer you on that wellmashed because I just don't know. I understand what you're saying so let's see what BbBoy says about it-I don't know how to do what you want to do...He might. :smile:

Hi wellmashed

I think Chris really needs to answer the concerns you mentioned, but until he gets here later, I can tell you that the BbRemote script would indeed need to be hosted on your computer 24/7 and you would need to have server software installed as well, in order for it to work.

At least, that's the way I understand it. :smile:

Yup, it's possible to host it on your own computer, but you will have to have your computer set up as a server (i.e install DNS, http, security etc software), and install perl too, as that's what BbRemote is written in. That's hard to achieve nicely (plus it would be extrememly slow if you're on dial-up, or against your ISP's TOS if you're on broadband, probably). It's besrt to have it hosted on a web server designed to take it. :smile: There's lots of free ones that allow scripts, but if you want a banner/popup-free one, you'll need to pay, I highly recommend http://100megswebhosting.com - our server is right next to Reuben's in the datacentre there. :smile:

Also,

The information is still stored on our server (BbRemote just acts as a go-between, it takes the request from the user, and passes it on to our server, which sends the information back to it, and it shows it to the user), so it's still bad if you break the TOS while using BbRemote. :smile:
