This seems pretty easy to me and cheap to do, then once it is set up you just telnet to your BBS. This requires another machine which has an internet connection.

I suppose if your household only has an Internet connection with a WiFi Router and no other computers other than Amigas you're out of luck. Bluetooth is usually good for around 20' so as long as the other machine connected to the internet is in the same room you can do it.

Seems like a similar way to crack the same egg.
