New BBS Features

Decided to sit down and add some long waited features I have been thinking about for the BBS. Almost all these changes revolve around security.

1. The Reddit Reader has returned. It has a few minor bugs that deal with the text placement on the screen but nothing major.

2. Secure Connection Lockdown has been implemented. If you want to be able to login using SSH/WSS/TOR only, it will no longer allow you to login use Unencrypted methods (Telnet/WS)

3. 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) has been implemented. Any apps/programs that are compatible with Google Authenticator or Authy will work. Standard TOTP style keys.

4. New “Profile Settings” can be found on the main menu, it contains the two security features listed above allowing you to toggle them on and off.

5. Password Recovery email address can now be specified in the Profile Settings menu. Although not required, it will allow me to reset passwords if you forget them.

As always if you have any issues, comments, complains, questions about the BBS you can contact me via Comments below, email, or the BBS itself.

Routing Issues

Looks like my host is having some routing issues with the IP block that is dedicated to the BBS server. I have tickets in and hopefully will be solved soon. Not everyone may be affected, but somewhere they are dropping packets to a specific IP block, but not all my blocks.

C# DOOR32.SYS BBSLink Client

If you have heard of or came across http://bbslink.net/ and wanted to add the services door games to your BBS but find that they only offer a javascript file for Synchronet BBSes then this might help you out.

I recently joined and not having a Synchronet BBS I had to make my own client to work with their service. As promised I am also releasing the source.

It is written in C# against .NET 2.0 and *might* work in mono on linux. You will have to test.

Local Binary: BBSLink Door Binaries
Local Source: BBSLink Door Source Code

Update: I made a small change to the dropped carrier handling and disconnections. The door should now handle dropped carrier and exit correctly. Let me know if you have issues.

Update: Removed Github links.

Updated BBS Connection Page

I have removed the flash versions of the telnet client on the website and replaced with an HTML5 HTTPS Websockets only applet. All connections to the BBS from this website are 100% encrypted. Downloading and uploading files works as well through the applet, which was the only reason I was keeping the flash version around. If you are connecting via telnet client instead of the applet, your connections are not encrypted. Just a heads up.

RIPScrip Enabled on Archaic Binary

I have enabled RIPScrip support on the BBS. Although most will never use it, it’s nice to have the option. Currently all menus are stock, but the mouse does work.

There are some small issues with the door games that do support RIP, sometimes the mouse is not over what the game expects to be a button. LORD does this sometimes where you have to move the mouse below the button and click. I am not sure what is causing this problem currently.

If you have a RIPScrip enabled telnet client like RIPTel or RIPTerm running inside a DOSBox give it a shot. You can connect with any telnet client to the main address: telnet://ssl.archaicbinary.net
