Can anyone direct me to some software that will allow a Linux box to
make like a terminal server?
Specifically, what I need is hardware/software so that Internoids can
telnet into here and access our Wildcat BBS ... they would telnet in
over TCP/IP (well, SLIP), then go out one of the Linux box's serial
ports to a user port on the BBS.
I plan to use a 386/33 or 386/40 for this, with 8 serial connections
to the BBS.
I know of at least one site (bbs.meu.edu) that is doing this using a
"real" terminal server, but I can't afford the $2000+ pricetag for one
of those little boxes.
Would greatly appreciate any help anyone can offer ... please respond
any e-mail replies.
When you reply, please keep in mind that I am still quite a Unix
novice ... thanks for your consideration <smile> ...
Thanks to all ...
