Hooples

Hello All, I finally joined the MTGA movement (Make Telnet Great Again). I have resurrected The Hooples BBS, originally running from '93-'98. I am running WG #2 due to the some of the modules I have are no longer available. The Headache: I started of using VirtualBox with FreeDos in a VM. All seemed...

Re: RLogin Client

"setup synchronet then use my rlogin client."

Dan,
you have created a rlogin client add-on? If so, I would like to try this out.

Mail Link vs World Link

Hello All,

In the process of resurrecting my BBS, I am pretty much stuck with WG#2, I do have WG#3 but lost all my upgraded add-ons.

I think you will find an answer to question at ftelnet.ca, or just google ftelnet.

I used this in the past, it actually works pretty well

Any ADD-ON game, in this example would be Logicomm BladeMaster. In the configuration menu [4] you have an option to send a greeting message about...
