• OS/2 BBS?

    From Adam Hall@1:305/3 to All on Thursday, February 25, 2021 03:32:36
    Is there any OS/2 hosted BBS out there? Used to use OS/2 almost 30 years ago. Even wrote some commercial games for it.

    Since this is a OS2_DOS_BBS area, I'm going to reply from OS/2 DOS session. :)

    I was running a DOS version on Concord BBS under OS/2, but moved to a native OS/2 version as soon as it was available.

    Still running OS/2 WSEB 4.52, all the time since the last century. :)

    Yup, several of us still holding down the fort.

    Running Telegard/2 under ArcaOS. I currently have issues with DOS
    sessions, so none of my DOS doors are working, but not used that much
    these days anyway.

    WWIV just released an update that added native OS/2 support back.

    https://github.com/wwivbbs/wwiv/releases/tag/wwiv_5.7.1 is the URL to download it. and http://docs.wwivbbs.org is the documentation.

    It's new OS/2 code, so possibly buggy, consider it alpha quality, but it seems to
    work well, and works with the telnet server (wwivd) just like Windows and Linux does.

    For DOS doors it includes a FOSSIL shim to use to handle int14 under DOS.

    Feedback welcome. Source at http://github.com/wwivbbs/wwiv
