The Telnet BBS Guide offers a downloadable text version of the BBS list. This list includes both Telnet BBS listings as well as US/Canada Dial-up BBS listings. The list comes in two formats:
Distribution List - This is the "official" Telnet BBS Guide, updated monthly. This list is intended for distriubtion to other websites and BBS systems.
Real-Time List - This is an unofficial list which reflects additions and deletions over the course of the month. This list is NOT intended to be distributed to other websites or BBS systems, only for personal use.
The downloadable files include both brief and detailed BBS listings, and a copy of mTelnet, a free easy to use Telnet client to access Telnet BBS systems. (This file is a ZIP compressed file. If you are unfamiliar with ZIP files, download a copy of Winzip or PKZip.)
If you are a Telnet BBS Sysop and wish to have your BBS added, please use our free easy-to-use form and we'll add to our next list.
If you wish to have a copy of the text version of the Telnet BBS Guide sent to your E-mail mailbox automatically at the beginning of each month, subscribe to our Yahoo Groups distribution list to have a copy sent to you when it becomes available. (Note - this is only for distribution purposes and is NOT a discussion list!)
If you have never used Telnet, or have used a BBS system (or both), here is all the information you'll need to get started to use BBS systems on the Internet!
Some BBS systems are now using secure shell (SSH) in order to provide security to a telnet connection. These BBS systems operate the same way as other Telnet BBS systems, but require a special SSH client in order to access them.
If you are a BBS sysop (or want to be one) and want to set up a Telnet BBS, here is all the information you'll need to start one of your own.
