    i might have missed the beginning of this conversation, you are
    looking for a telnet door or an ftp door or irc?

    Actually, I started this mess by asking if anyone knew of a telnet door and an ftp door to run under the Maximus in a DOS window under Windoze ME. I used to use the Citrus doors for this under OS/2, but they don't have the full suite available for DOS/Win.

    Well i did build a door for dos32 to have irc and telnet in it. (and
    eventually will work on ftp as well...) IT supports dorinfoX.def / door.sys
    and door32.sys as well.. it was build mainly for my BBS, but if ever you
    don't find anything else and you need one, let me know, and i could send you the version of this door..

    Well I tried with telnet then bterm (from linux) and got stuck at the login with telnet, then bterm went farther and got stuck entering my tel. number so I

    would not recommend your bbs unless you can get it working better. Still banging away trying to log on. Anyway I run BBBS on Linux RedHat and it really works with telnet or bterm. I don't use my dialup nodes as nobody calls anymore

    that way. Callers now use telnet.

    What do you mean by got stuck at the login??? You did say you got to the
    phone number. since the phone number is checked.. the digits needs to be
    good.. can it be that or something else?? just wandering, since i do get lots of people calling, i'd like to fix this bug if there's one here.. thanks for helping..

    I had trouble with bterm as it uses tcpip port here. But it looked ok till I was entering my tel. number. There when I tried the bs key it balked but after

    waiting it did jump back. I did not know wether to enter my 10 number with - separators or not. It should accept or tell one how to enter. I will try again

    and if I get on I will leave you a note.

    Have you looked into installing Linux ?? It is free and will work on older hardware as well as the newer.

    OKay well it's only asking for the 7 digits for the phone number ( i know i should ask for the 10)..the separator will add itself. Let me know if you
    have more problems...

    Well Linux is not an option for me right now. I have to much
    programs/utilities that are windows only. Maybe sometime i switch.. but not
    for now...

    Stephane,
    There is commen misconception that Linux cannot run windows programs and utilities. Recent improvements in the free Wine utility allows over 90% of windows programs to be run, sometimes better than on the original windows OS. Then there is Vmware that does cost $ that will run *ALL* windows software and utils.

    I realize that it takes some effort to get setup but in the long run will release you from the virus and worms that prevail in the windows world and of course it is free, except for Vmware.

    Yes i knew that linux could run some windows programs.. i didn't think it was over 90% of them though..i'm pretty surprised to hear this. but as you said, it's mostly the effort of setting all this up at the moment.. i'm kind of
    short on time (list most of us anyways i know..), but i'm not saying
    Never..i'm just not ready now...
