Bulletin Board System (BBS) Telnet Video Tour

Fidonet BBS Telnet Tour Video. See how we connected by dial up modem to send messages worldwide before the net went public.

This Fidonet BBS is still operational since 1st going online in 1991!

Take a trip back in time to see how we communicated long before the internet became mainstream. Back to the days when we thought 56k Modems were FAST!

Doc’s Place BBS offers the complete Fidonet Messaging Backbone. Surf on in with your favorite web browser and read and reply to messages online, or download a QWK packet and read and reply offline to the messages.

Or to see the BBS just like the old timers did, connect via Telnet. Note our telnet service has moved to Port 26. See this announcement for details.

Here is a link to the Telnet BBS Guide that has over 300 BBS’s listed that are still active. You can check out Doc’s Place BBS via Web Browser Here. :wink:
