A 80's Apple II BBS is on air:

a80sappleiibbs.ddns.net:6502

The BBS is running on a real Apple IIe with a Doudisk. The Software is GBBS Pro V1.2.

The goal is to have a BBS in the style of the 80's.

Enjoy!

Thanks a lot to Skipper1947 and CWJ_Wiko for their help!

Added a VisiCalc sheet to downloads.

With that you can compare the value and the forecast of a house or an apartment you want to buy to other objects.

Explanation of the sheet and how to use it you will find in Bulletin #40.

Re: A 80' Apple II BBS

Is the BBS still running? I have been trying to connect now for about a week and have not been able to. Tried with Syncterm and my Apple IIc Plus and a Wifi232 modem.

Re: A 80' Apple II BBS

Yes it is running.

But please excuse the discomfort!

I had problems with a client that should start tcpser when it stopped working. The client starts tcpser but sometimes with a long delay.

At the moment I'm on vacation - will be back at the beginning of the next week. From here I check the BBS with my IPhone and I saw that tcpser was down and then started again.

Excuse the trouble - all this makes me very uncomfortable - A 80's Apple II will run without breaks next week again perfectly all right!
