About Outpost BBS

Outpost BBS is a hobby I've had since 1998 when I opened my first public bulletin board system (BBS). The BBS is running Maximus/2 v3.01 under ArcaOS PE 5.0.8 (a modern version of OS/2) on a Dell Optiplex GX620.


You can connect to the Outpost via Link the Web or Link telnet to bbs.outpostbbs.net on port 10323.

Guest access is available! Use guest as your username. You'll have access to a few doors, a few filebases, and read-only access to networked message areas. You can download the latest Micronet nodelist, nodediff, and infopack by selecting option 9 at the main menu.

If you decide to create an account, please know that creating an account on the BBS will require you to disclose your real name and other personal information for sysop use only. New accounts are usually verified within 24 hours. Incomplete and fake accounts will be deleted.

Networked Mail

Outpost BBS is the home of Cheepware BBS doors and utilities; The Micronet Information Network (zone 618); and the Fidonet CHWARE, CLASSIC_COMPUTER, and HAM echomail conferences.

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 instructions included with every QWK packet).

If you need an offline mail reader, try one of the programs below. Both are open source and released under the GNU General Public License.

...and many more!

Outpost BBS is the home of the Cheepware BBS door line and features:


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. We offer the entire OS/2-related file archive from the original os2bbs.com BBS...over 10 GB of hard-to-find OS/2 software! In addition, we offer selected areas from the Fidonet filebone (networked file areas), the entire Micronet filebone, and the Fernwood filebone (new files from the Hobbes OS/2 archive).

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.
