BBS Setup

Post by hurricane1031 »

I am currently running a registered WG32 Server 256 and Major Mudd on Windows 7 Pro. I want to update my BBS configuration. I have a machine with Windows Server 2019. Right now, I am running it the system within my internal network. I may want to eventually go live in the future, but right now I do not have the time to maintain a public BBS. Can you recommend which version of BBS Software I should be using for Windows Server 2019?

MBBS v10 (the current version) works with Server 2019. The demo BBS is running under this setup.

I have not tested WG3.2 under server 2019 but at a minimum the installer may have problems.

You can upgrade from v3.2 to v10.
