About Outpost BBS

Outpost BBS is a hobby I've had since 1998 when I opened my first public bulletin board system (BBS). The current BBS is running Maximus/2 v3.01, with BinkleyTerm-XE/2 answering, under ArcaOS PE 5.0.7 on a Dell Optiplex GX620 (3gHz P4, 2GB RAM, 660GB storage).

You can connect to the Outpost via the Web client or telnet to bbs.outpostbbs.net on port 10123. Guest access is available. New accounts are usually verified within 24 hours.

 NOTE: When you call the BBS, there may be up to a ten-second delay (depending on latency) before the BBS answers.
 Creating an account on the BBS will require you to disclose your real name and other personal information. Fake accounts will be deleted. Use the guest account instead.

The Outpost BBS FTP server is available at bbs.outpostbbs.net via anonymous FTP with access to the Cheepware filebase, the Fidonet and Micronet network filebones, and a few other miscellaneous areas. Full access is available to verified BBS users to prevent misuse of system resources.

Outpost BBS is the home of:

The BBS is a member of Fidonet at 1:18/200 and offers full and point feeds for Fidonet. For more information about a Fidonet feed, please contact me. For Micronet feeds, please visit the Micronet website.

Offline mail is available via QWK for all local and networked message bases, including netmail (see the bulletin in a downloaded QWK packet on how to send netmail via QWK with Maximus). I highly recommend using Multimail for your offline mail reading as Multimail is a modern console mode offline mail reader for DOS, OS/2, Win32, Win64, Linux, and OS X.

The BBS offers several doors for your enjoyment:

Outpost BBS is a member of the Micronet IBBS League 618 running InterLORD for InterBBS play.

Outpost offers a good-sized filebase with an eclectic mix of files covering a wide range of interests such as BBSing, amateur radio, OS/2 support, programming, and food-related files.
