Outpost BBS


About the BBS

Outpost BBS is a hobby I've had since 1998 when I opened my first public BBS. The current BBS is running Maximus/2 v3.01 under ArcaOS Personal Edition 5.0.3. The current computer used is a Dell Optiplex GX620.

You can connect to the Outpost via telnet using your favorite client at telnet://bbs.outpostbbs.net on port 10123. Guest access is available by using guest as your username to log in. To create an account, log in using your real name. Usually accounts are verified within 24 hours.

The Outpost BBS FTP server is available at ftp://bbs.outpostbbs.net via anonymous FTP with limited access to the BBS filebase. Please note that the full file base is available only to verified BBS users only to prevent misuse of system resources.

Outpost BBS is the home of:

The BBS is a member of Fidonet at 1:18/200. I have been a regional independent node (RIN) in R18 since 2000. I offer full and point feeds for Fidonet. For more information, please contact me.

Offline mail is available via QWK for all local and networked message bases, including netmail. Maximus has an easy-to-use feature that allows netmail via QWK. Multimail, a modern offline mail reader is recommended for use.

The BBS offers several doors for your enjoyment like multinode Scrabble, Triple Yahtzee, Stack 'Em, Legend of the Red Dragon (LORD), LORD 2, Flip The Bits, Death by Adrenaline, King of the Board, Stack'Em, Runemal, Land of Devastation, Gothik: Better Than Chocolate, and the entire line of Cheepware doors. Outpost BBS is a member of the Micronet IBBS League 618 running InterLORD for InterBBS play.

Outpost offers over 17GB of files with something for everyone. The BBS is a OS/2 file repository with files for OS/2, eComStation, and ArcaOS. There are hundreds of files for the OS/2-based BBS sysop. Some of the files we have available:

I have over 30 more shareware CDs to add to the BBS and probably more if I look hard enough. I am always looking for good file collections to add!
