BBSLink Wall C# Win32 Client

Available is my C# Win32 client for DOOR32.SYS generating BBS systems that can execute .NET 2.0 code and wish to join the BBSLink public Oneliners (Wall).

This door like my others requires the RMLib C# library (it’s included). Please read the readme.txt file and overview the start.bat file for usage.

I’ve polished up my utility I’m calling HTTPmodem. It’s a file transfer protocol for BBSes. It will allow a Sysop to upload, copy, build HTTP(S) URLs for users to download files from their BBS. You will need a web server of some sort to serve the files, and a 32-bit DOOR32.SYS BBS system.

“Do you run a BBS and have file transfer options available to users? Do you have issues with X/Y/Z modem protocols? Are your users confused by these protocols because they just don’t know them?”

“When added to your BBS as a file transfer protocol option, the users will be able to get HTTP(S) links instead of the archaic X/Y/Z modem protocol offerings.”

“With a good telnet/ssh client or the fTelnet HTML5 applet users can copy/paste or in the case of fTelnet just CLICK on the URL and the file can be downloaded!”

It can use SFTP, Jirafeau, URL Rewrite (fixed httpd served location URL+File Name), or File Copy (copy file to httpd served location).

It supports URL shortening services, Archaic.Link (my free service), TinyURL, and

It can spit out a file transfer successful dummy DSZ style log that some BBS software needs to avoid some logging errors.

It can give the Sysop/Users the ability to email themselves a list of the flagged/batched files and URLs to download them using a SMTP server. (More support will come soon for sending these emails).

Almost all strings are able to be customized so you can word things your way for your board.

Please check the readme.txt file inside archive for more information.

Should note this will probably only help the Windows BBS Sysops, (written in .net 3.5) but I will publish source on my site if somebody wishes to port it.

Fully tested with Mystic and with my custom coded system. Should work with Synchronet as it does the same calls for FTPs.
Libraries included:, WinSCP, RMLib.


You can demo it on Archaic Binary ( Go to the files area, use the index to find a file, flag it with [space]. Return to the file menu and download.

Web BBS Client Updated

I have updated the HTML5 web client on the Connect page. Most notable feature of this new version is that it allows you to click on HTTP links that the BBS generates.

If you want to download a file now, you no longer need to use YModem (and its’ horrid speeds). You can just choose the HTTP (Generate Link) option and click the generated HTTP URL. You don’t even need to copy/paste!

On a side note, YModem downloads in this new version seem bugged and get CRC errors. Just use HTTP.
