DarkForce has switched...

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to announce that I've switched The DarkForce! BBS from using a Lantronix UDS-10

to a WiModem 232.




This means that we are now using "raw" for translation instead of "telnet".


We've tested with multiple setups and uploading and downloading seems to be fully functional



If you're using Windows 7, Windows 10, MacOS, Kubuntu Linux, etc, then SyncTerm is one of,

if not the best choices for calling in.




If you're using an Atari ST, then TAZ, STalker, ANSITerm, Freeze Dried Terminal and Flash have

all been successfully used.


People from the 8bit community have reported their setups working fine as well (just remember

to use 80 columns for the best results).


If you're currently calling in with a WiModem 232, then just make sure that your translation is

set to "raw" as well. Just do an "at*t0" (that's the default anyway) and save with "at&w".


If you're using a Lantronix UDS-10, then you can use the following settings to put it into "raw"


*** Lantronix Universal Device Server ***
Serial Number xxxxxxx  MAC address xxxxxxxxxxx
Software version V5.8.0.5 (060724) LTX

Disconn Mode : 81
Flush   Mode : 00

*** Expert
TCP Keepalive    : 45s

Change Setup:
  0 Server
  1 Channel 1
  5 Expert
  6 Security
  7 Factory defaults
  8 Exit without save
  9 Save and exit            Your choice ?



Thanks everyone (and a big thanks to everyone who's helped

with testing and advice/suggestions during our changeover).

Seems appropriate to me. Good call, thanks.
