I'm lookiing for BBS software for the Mac. Something simple to install and simple to run. I'd also like to be able to access it locally. I have a PowerMac G5.

Any ideas?

Some potentially good software there, but the FIRST thing I gotta do is get the Mac online. I don't have a wireless card in it, and the router is over 250 ft away.

Thanks

I know that this thread hasn't been touched since 2012. However, I am always looking for opportunities to promote Macintosh-based and Macintosh-oriented BBSing, and keep it alive, despite the fact that it is an old technology.

With that in mind, allow me to invite you to visit the Armageddon BBS website. There, you will find the history of the Armageddon BBS, as well as a lot of tutorials which will teach you not only how to log on to and use the Armageddon BBS, but also how to set up your own Macintosh-based BBS on a modern OS X machine, using the old Hermes II BBS software and an OS 9 emulator.

So what are you waiting for? Check it out at:

Thanks a lot! Enjoy your blast to the past! smile
