Re: BBS running on Raspberry Pi

Sounds an awful lot like a permissions issue in the /sbbs/ directory, can't write files to /sbbs/node#/...

Re: BBS running on Raspberry Pi

I ended up scrapping the idea of running DOS on the Pi -- it is very taxing on the CPU and multi-node games would be nearly impossible with qemu. As of right now I have SBBS running on the Pi; door games run from another server into the pi. The insecure and clunky operation of DOS/Doors running on t...

Re: DOS & BBS apps

So... after much tinkering and fussing, and realizing things were getting WAY out of hand as far as complexity of running doors, I am pulling back to the drawing board, going to attempt running the entire BBS inside of QEMU. So far I have a DOS vm with TCP/IP reaching out to my network and will be s...

Re: DOS & BBS apps

I have successfully installed Synchronet and DOS (using qemu) and have successfully played L.O.R.D. as a DOOR game from the BBS.

It was...interesting getting everything working. It's still a work in progress so I am not opening up the BBS to the world, but it can be done!

I can't get QEMU to reliably run anything for more than about 30 seconds without freezing.

I can run Dosbox just fine, but it has a bunch of random file locking issues that make it pretty much useless outside of simplified tasks.

Re: DOS & BBS apps

Were you able to get Dosbox working with your BBS?

I've been able to get local instances of DOOR games running, but connecting the output to the telnet window is a whole other beast. The furthest I've gotten is having Dosbox launch without redirected output to the terminal window.

Any luck/advice?
