I have just one word for you son "Plastics" uhhh no, make that "firewall". My telnet no workum. Telnet works to other sites here so thinking firewall on your side.

Edit: what's this? It's working ok now.

You're running it on a Winders box? Man, I just lost all my respect for you...

haha. i am thinking about putting it on my linux box actually. i'd LOVE to do it in DOS on like a 386 but i can't find a BBS program that handles telnet connections for DOS. might have to write my own lol.

then it would truly be "vintage"

Well, that's part of why I'm writing my own TCP/IP - so that I can run a telnet BBS off of something even slower than a 386.

were you planning on interfacing your TCP/IP layer with existing BBSes? like reroute their COM interfaces? (is it possible to do something with FOSSIL?) or were you going to program your own. i'd be interested if somebody did that.

My own TCP/IP with my own BBS.

See the 'Joys of Filesharing' thread in the programming area. Up to this point it has been me basically talking to myself about the coding process and the performance I've been trying to squeeze out of it. More like a personal blog instead of a thread. ;-)

It's not working for me, either..

As for your request for a DOS BBS software that has good telnet/rlogin support, check out WorldGroup 2.0 with the TCP/IP module :) - Runs in DOS wonderfully.

I'm currently modifying your quickbasic telnet application to work as a bot for my BBS, relaying data to text files for the website, so I can list top adventurers in the mud realm and things like that :)

While I don't run DOS for my BBS, I can definitely appreciate the continued progress in the world of DOS, and definitely have to turn my friend Mouse on to you guys, as he refuses to run any OS that he cannot boot natively into DOS, heh..
