UUCP/USENET on an Atari BBS?

Post by sande.. » Mon, 13 Jun 1994 08:51:39



Does anyone out there on the net know of a way to get a UUCP feed to my
atari.  I have palyed with Mercury and Hermes, but there are either no
docs or they are in german.  I would be interested in source code.. a
sompiled program that would let my Ratsoft BBS users get email and usenet
from a UUCP feed.  even a prgram that would convert USEnet messages to
Fido messages would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Alan Deffenderfer

There is someone working on an Atari BBS package that supports Fidonet, and
may also support a few othet net things, but I'm not sure.  This BBS will also
support ANSI 16 colors on an STE, among other things.  Wait for it.

I didn't find Hermes that hard to install. And you can always consult
the writer of Hermes if you have problems. If you do this often, maybe
he'll write the docs in english eventually!

Forget Mercury; it's old, unsupported. Hermes is the successor of Mercury.

Steve Caple (If you have access to NeST you can contact him there) has written
a program to convert the two type of packets Usenet<->Fido , the latest
non-beta version is freq'able using FIDO mailers from several BBS , the name of
the program is ...... STUFIT.ZIP , I have it here.

It's supportware , you can use it but if you want improvements and/or changes
then you have to pay him a one off fee.
