RE: BBS : Networks
One further update on this, & it's quite a large one. Last winter the rear-case fan was driving me batty, as the bearings had gone out & it was grinding. About a month ago, I took the board down to replace the fan. However the one that I had purchased was a 4 pin & the motherboard only supported 3 pin. The decision was made to just leave the board offline, as I'm not even in Akron any longer, & I only had a single dedicated user still logging in.

Since then I've gone even further back, setting up a 486 motherboard with a Lantronix MSS100 Serial R232 TCP/IP stack. This allows for outside telnet in via TCP/IP to communicate with the serial port, so the BBS software is unaware of any differences. Additionally I have setup & verified a dialup modem over VOIP/Asterisk. However due to the limitations of DOS not being a multi-tasking OS, I am unable to run both nodes at the current time.

Currently this board can be reached by Telnet, or dialup 443 991 7888
