• Anyone have Powerboard BBS v2.0 or later?

    From Ozz Nixon@1:275/362 to All on Fri Aug 3 20:40:53 2018
    Scott added to Powerboard in the late 90's "WIP" Windows Interface Protocol, and I am trying to find a copy of his BBS so I can see what his WIP protocol looks like versus my RGP (Remote GUI Protocol) - probably to be renamed to RWP (Remote Widget Protocol) ... as RGP collides too much on G00gle..

    I'm not sure of PowerBoard but my Synchronet has support for WIP. There are several stock WIP files here that I have never edited or used. I don't know what the WIP interface is or what it looks like, but you might have some success with that on Synchronet.

    Actually, I am not sure the Synchronet WIP support is the same as what you are talking about here.

    ... All those updates, and still imperfect!

    I'm not sure of PowerBoard but my Synchronet has support for WIP. There

    Fingers crossed that it is the same protocol ;-) ... off to download SN and see...

    Most likely, it is - it's the protocol that was supported by dcTerm, but it never took off. The WIP support in Synchronet is deprecated now.
