Writing 32bit BBS Doors

I got a post on Archaic Binary BBS about how to write a BBS door.

Well I am fairly new to this still, and have only written two small 32bit BBS doors that I use on my own system.

Firstly I used a copy of Rick Parrish’s RMLib to write them, it’s not a very complete SDK or anything but it does give the basic IO functions we need for communication over the socket connection.

Then you need a IDE for C#. I suppose one of the best is Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2012 C# Express. It’s free and the project files worked for me.

If you can write in C# then you should be fine.

I have also attached the source code for a little door to help you. Remember my File Download door also comes with source you can check out.

32bit File Download BBS Door

I have been looking around for a file transfer door, that is 32bit compatible and can utilize a 32bit file transfer protocol instead of relying on old DSZ 16bit programs to send files over YModem and ZModem.

Without much luck I took the RMLib and developed a very simple door program for 32bit BBSs’ that lets users download files. It’s a very simple interface, using XML as a storage medium for filenames and descriptions. Then passes all the information needed to transfer the file to Synchronets’ SEXYZ.EXE program since it’s able to transfer files using X/Y/ZModem and it’s already 32bit.

Still needs work, and I’m adding and cleaning it up still but you can grab a copy of the source and program if you want to do something similar with your BBS.
