    :-P

    Running into a road block ... any suggestions what I will need to have sbbs on winxp to use telnet ports instead of comm ports. I was looking at some old posts but I am unable to track down the vmodem/netfoss mentioned.

    ps: I may need someone to hold my hand bit

    Not sure what you mean.. Synchronet uses telnet by default, and doesn't support comm ports unless you use something like Sexpots.

    some old posts but I am unable to track down the vmodem/netfoss mentioned.

    Synchronet has a FOSSIL driver built in, which gets invoked automatically when you run a FOSSIL door. You can use Netfoss if you want to, but you don't have to.

    Sorry, I should have added version number to message body and not just Subject line ... this is for Synchronet v2.00g so before telnet and sexpots

    So, my intent is to add virtual comm ports and a vfoss type comm-to-tcp so sbbs 200g can answer telnet ...
    I found some old discussions, mostly by tracker1 but I cannot find the archives mentioned

    ... I suppose if you ask each individual chicken why it crossed the road, it'd have a different reason :-P

    I managed to get 3 nodes answering incoming telnet requests to sbbs200g from within my LAN ... as you said, there is no reason other than wanting to. Now to figure out port forwarding within win10 as it is the ethernet bridge for the ancient P4 to get internet access.

    did i say there was no reason other than wanting to?

    just put a nic in the computer and connect it to your router?

    you can use net2bbs and netfoss to run it as a door.

    this ancient P4 1.6 can't handle wifi and to avoid drilling a hole through my wall to run a cat5 I had it plugged into my win10 box which shared internet ... anyway, I did piss off my wife and drilled a hole in the wall and the ol' 200g is live ... with todays dovenet ... just working out a few minor issues and install some doors and ... zzzzZZZZZ ....
