Standalone BBS Server

Well the new PC is now functioning as the standalone BBS system, there are currently 2 dial up lines connected via Hayes modems.

To contact the system use a ViewData compatible terminal and connect V23 (1200 / 75, 7E1), to one of the numbers below...

(0845) 0950081
(0845) 0950082
 
You can also connect via a suitable ViewData terminal via raw sockets on...
 
bbs.retroacorn.net:5001
 
Both lines are local rate in the UK only. If anyone outside of the UK is interested then I'll setup a suitable number.

If I can setup the other 2 lines then I'll add them in as I've got another 2 Hayes modems for this task.

Custom Entry Forms

Currently working on making the system implement some kind of data entry form for use in applications. 
I'm trying to get simple text boxes to work but intend to implement several controls such as buttons, check boxes and a password box.
