    Default Retrogaming BBS

    Hey guys,

    Captain's Quarters BBS has returned from its watery grave! Warp Six is humming along on my all-solid-state Apple IIgs via TCPSER on a Raspberry Pi. It's got 7 Door Games, a ton of Text Files, and the retrocomputing / retrogaming message boards. The BBS is still under construction, so come help test it out!

    Connect here: telnet://cqbbs.ddns.net:6502

    If you don't have your old computer online, there's a few ways to do so. The first is to get the Wifi232 Internet Modem for your old computer here (when it's in stock):

    Or use TCPser on a Raspberry Pi with a null modem cable as described here:

    You can also use the terminal program SyncTERM on your modern computer to logon:

    Hope to see you there!

    I tried on Windows 7 using telnet client in command prompt and it is double typing so I can't enter any text properly.

    I have the same issue with Terminal on the Mac. Download SyncTERM as above - it works much better...

    I highly recommend. NetRunner it is a telnet client for both Linux and Windows. It works great. Here is the link. https://tinyurl.com/ld3quja

    Hey, Byte Knight.

    Never mind. I see it is up now. I really like the simplistic style. I have been working with Mystic on the Raspberry pi. It is under constant development and I find that I don't like that. I like my BBS to be simple and stay the same which is why I like yours so much.

    Mike what is your favorite style of BBS, Apple, Amiga, etc ???

    No real preference.

    BTW play the game Digital: A Love Story.

    It's better than it sounds.

    You play the game through an Amiga BBS interface and get involved in a story with another member.

    Has Windows, Linux and Mac versions too.
