Outpost BBS


About the BBS

Outpost BBS is a hobby I've had since 1998 when I opened my first public bulletin board system or BBS. The current BBS is running Maximus/2 v3.01 under ArcaOS Personal Edition 5.0.6. The current computer used is a Dell Optiplex GX620.

You can connect to the Outpost via telnet using your favorite terminal 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.

If you plan on doing file transfers, you may have issues using ZModem with the BBS. Please use YModem or YModem-G instead.

Creating an account on the BBS will require you to disclose your real name and other personal information. If you don't want to do that, please use the guest account. Fake accounts will be deleted.

The Outpost BBS FTP server is available at ftp://bbs.outpostbbs.net via anonymous FTP with limited access to the BBS filebase. 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. 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), Flip The Bits, Death by Adrenaline, Stack'Em, 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 a good-sized filebase with a wide variety of files. There are several sections for OS/2 programs and support for the OS/2 BBS sysop.
