I've got a 1200 with a 030/33 and 32 meg of ram. For connectivity I have either ethernet, (wired or wireless) or a lantronix wiport adapter I built.
(Serial to ethernet bridge with modem emulation).
I was hoping to find something like amiexpress, but have been unable to find a copy of the 4.xx release or any documentation to help me get started. I never ran a bbs on my amiga back in the day, all my bbs's were pc based using either wildcat or remote access software.
So any help would be much appreciated.

Hey there,

I am running /X on my A1200 and have the 4.9+ full crack on my BBS for download. I tested it, and it worked, but I went back to my old registered 4.3 which as far as I can tell is no different than 4.9. There are some things you may be interested to know.
  • I can only get the BBS to work with telnetd.device and have problems with the system (Well Miami-DX actually) locking up during or after uploads. There is a sysop, Amiga-Digital I believe, that has the telser.device working but I can't get it to work... He says there are no problems with his setup.
  • If you use a stock A1200 IDE interface with a hard disk or compact flash card, your CPU will peg at 100% during all uploads rendering your second node and the rest of your A1200 effectively useless for the duration of the upload.
There are other things but it does work... I have started an Ami-Express Sysops group on facebook if you are interested. Donny (from Uzi-suicide) and I check that frequently and there are some retired legends from the Amiga scene in there as well. Drop by and we will try and get you up and running.
