This ZIP archive contains several files needed to follow along with Mike Whalen’s BBS articles in the March & June 2017 issues of Juiced.GS.
Want to “dial” a telnet BBS? Included are four disk images, each with InTrec’s ProTERM 3.1, Dave Whitney’s Z-Link, and Jim Brain’s tcpser binary. Each disk image is configured for use with either an Apple IIc, IIc Plus, IIe, or IIGS.
The terminal program files can be booted from a solid-state product like the CFFA3000. They also can be transferred directly to disk via ADTPro. Note that ProTERM is an 800k disk.
Want to host your own telnet BBS? Also included are disk images with the following files:
- A 32 MB ProDOS Warp6 disk image customized with a driver for the hardware listed in the archive name. (The No-Modem version allows you to run Warp6 in emulation or on an Apple II without a serial connection.)
- Warp6 3.0 documentation
- A compiled tcpser binary ready for your Raspberry Pi
- The Freewriter text editor inside the disk image so you can edit ASCII files
Regardless of your needs, you should transfer tcpser to your Raspberry Pi. Options include downloading this archive directly to the Pi, emailing it to yourself and accessing that email on the Pi, or some other means. Once you have it there, you’ll want to grant tcpser executable permissions by entering the following at the command-line within the same directory as tcpser:
$ sudo chmod +x tcpser
tcpser can be run from any directory you have full permissions to such as your home directory. However, you can put tcpser in your system path such as /usr/sbin or /usr/bin. To do that, enter this on the command line:
$ sudo cp tcpser /usr/bin/
