  I think it is good to see more interest in the BBS world too.  Some things like that are cyclical, growing in popularity initially and then waining before being discovered for another purpose and growing in popularity again.  I see that happening in the BBS world.  With growing use in the EmComm field and new software like Outpost that provides an easy interface into a BBS, I suspect more will find new uses for a BBS.
  I will look into the sources you described, both the Yahoo group and WinFBB.  You have WinFBB and RMS running on one TNC and radio which is what I am after.  I'll look into that setup.
  Thanks again for the information.

> Hello, just signed up on the list hoping to learn more about hosting a
packet BBS. More specifically, my ARES group is looking at Outpost as an
interface to post messages to an EmComm BBS, one of the emcomm modes we hope
to deploy in support of local emergency management. My question is, is
there a packet bbs that uses AGWPE so I can also host a Winlink RMS packet
gateway on the same computer/tnc/radio?

I can't speak for AGW doing what you want (I think it might, but I know
there are guys running multiple apps on top of BPQ32. If interested, check
this Yahoo Group out, bunch of BPQ32/FBB talent on it:


I'm planning a BPQ32 based node, WinFBB PBBS, and RMS off one radio & TNC
for my area now, several on there have been excellent resources for all my

Good to see more folks getting interested in PBBS's.
