The D700 will both act as a digi and as a BBS
and it can work at 9600 baud.  Just dont enable
and set UITRACE to WIDE if you will use it as a digi.

I wasn't aware it will act as a BBS.  I didn't think
it will act as a mail box drop point as it won't act
as a digi.  I may not have read all the instructions?
