    So there is a EzyCOM for the RPI3?

    Thanks
    David.

    Of course not it's DOS based. If there was it would
    be the number one BBS software. ;) I no longer use the pi
    for a BBS because I didn't like a few bugs in Mystic and I
    don't have time to re learn synchronet. :(

    It would seem to me that someone by now would have done a DOS in ARM already. However, I am as sharp as a wet noodle in a hurricane. So...fogrive me, I just do technical support and I try to stay on top of things...but most of the time my thought process just doesn't work anymore.
    David.

    I've read something about getting the pi to boot into dosbox and act as a DOS game console, I wonder if you could do the same with a DOS BBS.

    There's com port redirection to a IP port, which works for Telix to connect via telnet, don't know if it'd work for incoming connections and how it would scale. a DOS BBS and Frontdoor running on a Pi would be quite cool, though.

    there's some better cheap alternatives that dont require so much work around and fuckery.

    Environments to emulate a DOS BBS? Nope.
