BBS server software recommendations

category: offtopic [glöplog]

I'm looking for some BBS server software, you guys know these things better than I, so maybe you could recommend..

I really like MysticBBS look'n'feel, although I miss there a web interface for people who'd like to check messages messages from mobile devices.

Features I'd like to have:

1. Telnet/SSH interface
2. Simple web-interface
3. ANSI-art look'n'feel
4. Email notifications
5. Preferably Linux installation capabilities

If you could recommend software that could partially do the thing, that would be great.

Many thanks!

Try AMMS - Amiga Multiuser Mailbox System
an older demo can be found on aminet.
Except for web-interface (use HtmlTerm for that) it should offer all you need.

Hi thanks you for your suggestion, Merkur. It looks very neat. However I'd like to run it on (preferably) Linux server tu ensure it will be available all the time. And with my Amiga it's not so obvious..

Also it'd be good to use product which is not discontinued.

But thank you anyway for your suggestion!

I actually liked searchlight BBS a lot ;)
However, at this point it is probably be less hassle to get a coder (or do it yourself) and start a new custom bbs system with the interface you like so you dont have to get your head around all those old drivers, modem standards and obsolete platforms.

Anyway, if you feel like browsing whats out there just check this list.

For Linux you can try Mystic or Tempest, natively...

I don't know if there is another with web interface functionality other than SynchroNET... you could try that one on top of DOSemu...

I'm not a Linux user, mind you...

On the other hand one can host any of the old trad software on windows, either using a server like netfoss, or something else to use as front door.

I use gamesrv as a front door to my BBS @ punktheon.darktech.org, because with netfoss driver and net2bbs server, my BBS based on System Express couldn't deal with the constant scanning of telnet hacking spiders.

These programs constantly trying to find a shell login through telnet and attempting to plug long strings of hacking commands into the net2bbs server simply made the BBS soft go crazy and crash, that's why I had to implement GameSrv as frontdoor.

But that's just me, I'm a nostalgic fool and couldn't care less for web interfacing...

all the best!
