Sure. Any particular package you're looking for?

Hi Terry,

Not really, what is a good program that has some decent features and preferrably something with xmodem or better transfer protocol.

Curt,

After reading your post last night, I was going thru the CP/M CD to see what is available there. There are several good BBS packages on it, but "best" is a relative term. It depends on your needs, and somewhat on your programming skille, in case the program needs to be tweaked somehow for your use. Are you a BASIC programmer? Then you'll want a program written in MBASIC or CBASIC. Do you have any 8080 assembly language skills? Etc... Also, you'll need to decide how your BBS will be used. Is it to be mainly for file downloads, or more oriented towards a message-board, or what?

I have a better idea. Pm me your snail-mail addy and I'll burn you a copy of the CD so you can check it out yourself.
