Name Information Info
IPTIA BBS resources, BBS listings and more.
The Quantum Wormhole TQW BBS Runs the tqwRadio station and other resources along with tqwNet FTN.

ArchaicNET is a file distribution network (FDN) which allows your BBS users to browse and download files that are not hosted on your BBS. Although this service is designed to be used by Sysops, anyone can simply telnet to the service and get files.

Sysops can add ArchaicNET by adding a menu item that uses either Telnet or RLOGIN to port 8523 and 8513 respectively. If you are using RLOGIN be absolutely sure your not sending any credentials. The ArchaicNET interface will follow the 'gui' command interface of Archaic Binary.

Service Port Encoding
Telnet 8523 ANSI / CP437
RLOGIN 8513 ANSI / CP437
Service Notes
Discord Automatic posts to the general channel when user plays a door game. Sometimes general chat.
We do not monitor social media, we have no use for it. You can contact the Sysop using the BBS and will get a quick reply.
