Excelsior!, HydraBBS and Zeus
1 Attachment(s)
Hey, hey :)
Website on address


is up and working... but downloads section does not start downloads :(
i am interested in:


Anyone got backups to zone it? Thanks in advance...

Testing various BBS software so i can decide which one will i choose for my "soon-to-come" telnet BBS.
For now, my favorite is HydraBBS V1.12 :D
Don't have a keyfile for it, so lots of popups... if someone would point a way to obtain it... :great

The only one i can't connect to is Zeus BBS V1.7 (is there V1.8?)... all other packages work excellent with telnetd.device via or external public IP, but Zeus not reacting at all. Accepts configuration when i choose telnetd.device and then nothing... status is "Waiting for call"
This is all done in WinUAE with bsdsocket.library.
Anyone have experience setting up telnet node in Zeus?

No one has backup of Excelsior! files: ebbs_123.lha and bbs_key.lha? :bowdown

in devious tools #188 is an update to 1.12. looks like a scene release,
but cannot say for sure.

TrojanBarber 17 February 2017 02:55

BBS went online and i got a file from there... Thanks Codetsu :)

Uploading it to The Zone now ^^

TrojanBarber 17 February 2017 03:09

#1) HBBS/Source/Node/KeyCreator should have all is needed, i think.
or is this to create account credentials for external users only?

TrojanBarber 18 February 2017 00:18

omg... i don't know how many times i was on that page and never noticed that there is a source code there :crazy

thanks for pointing out, rygar :D

I have read that Zeus 1.7 has issues while 1.6 is more stable. Has anyone version 1.6 ?

GiuseppeC 19 February 2017 22:24

I suggest you to try DLGBBS too, it is one of the best BBS software of that time.

NOTE: DLG Is actively being developed !!! https://bitbucket.org/grimmtooth/dlg

emufan 19 February 2017 22:39

hi GiuseppeC,
is there another zeus bbs system next to this - since i cannot find version 1.6/1.7 or others of zeus,
i wonder what version you and TrojanBarber are referring to :)

GiuseppeC 20 February 2017 02:20

Hi Emufan,
ZeusBBS system is only one. Site has not been updated but in the underground there are newer version of the software.

In this thread someone (Maurizio Fabiani) talks about Version 1.6 received directly from Neil Williams (The author).

Here you find links and the information that Zeus 1.7 has "some issues"
