Supporting Wildcat! SysOPs for 20+ years!
WINSnet is an FTN echomail network set up by Thomas Kloos, Frank Rauhuff, and Robert Wolfe to support Sysops who run Mustang's Wildcat! for DOS, or Santronics Software's Wildcat! Interactive Net Server BBS software.
Today, in an effort to generate a stable and rich network, we have added more echomail areas, and are allowing systems of any type. You will notice some WINServer specific conferences, this doesn't mean other systems cannot post in these conferences, please understand, WINServer is at our core, but we need to branch out, and we welcome all other systems into our network.
At the request of the WINSnet Zone Co-ordinator Thomas Kloos, this network is now hosted by Terry Roati of the File Bank BBS in Cairns, Australia.
To Join, select Join from the menu. You will be taken to a simple online form. Complete that form and setup the necessary message and file echos. You will then be sent an email with any necessary details, and we will begin sending you messages.
The preferred transport methods for WINSNet mail is via telnet/VMODEM thru Netserial. Netserial is by PCMicro and they offer a Sysop price of $25. They offer a 30 day trial. Visit https://pcmicro.com/NetSerial/ This works great with PXOnline.
or you can use BinkP by using Internet Rex. We suggest you use version 2.29.
