telser.device (Aminet) and bsdsocket emulation enabled should do it.

I wonder if there is a suitable client for my nokia n95 so perhaps I can have a go at work if I get an odd minute

Been a while since I used a BBS, I remember getting a massive and ancient 19200 baud modem my Dad managed to blag from work and racking up a 90 quid bill in the first week and half.

Can anyone remember which software you'd use with a BBS? I cannot honestly remember what I had running on my 1200/500 all those years ago. Just dug out a pic of my Amiga 1200 from 1994 with my 28k modem on show

Thought I'd resurrect this thread somewhat..
BBS Games are pretty much forgotten about these days apart from some murky corners of the internet..My BBS days were mainly on PC boards and I played loads of fun games (including a multiplayer text adventure called Kyrandia which some guys from Westwood bought the rights to and turned into The Legend of Kyrandia). But what were the Amiga boards like for games? I'm sure they must have had some. The reason I ask is that they are technically Amiga games and are in major danger of being lost in the mists of time, it would be great to add them to HOL but as neither me or Cody know a thing about Amiga BBS games we could do with some help..

Are there any Amiga BBS's running?
Does anyone have a list of Amiga BBS games?
Could these games be run locally without the need of a BBS?

etc etc..The more insight the better!

Brilliant, thanks for the link
Do you have any experience with the games though? Are there a lot out there and can they be ran without the need of a BBS?

montereybbs.com - my telnet bbs - I have a pretty decent selection of games ("DOORS" from main menu) to include interbbs games, though they aren't set up just yet. Regardless, LORD, LORD 2, Planets: TEOS, Usurper, TradeWars 2002, and a whole slew of others are all registered and playable.

I recommend the Pit.

Aren't they all PC doors? I know this thread originally started about BBSs and doors in general but now we need to know about Amiga doorgames so we can add them to HOL.
