DLX runs on MS-DOS and supports up to 32 telephone lines at once on a single computer. It is a social BBS.

Nothing would please me more than to have some kid in his bedroom write the next great social BBS. You are free to use this source code for any purpose. You may modify it and make your own BBS program, and even copyright and sell your modified version. Happy BBSing! Contacing the author of DLX: ============================= Richard Gillmann, Programmer Inner Loop Software rag@connected.com =-=-=-=-=-= - EISBBS =-=-=-=-=-= INTRODUCTION ============== EIS is a complete remote information manager. A remote information manager is a program that allows people who own modems to call your modem and download information, send, receive, and reply to E-Mail. Operate programs that run on your computer from theirs, view catalogs, place orders, talk to the system operator (ie: You), and more. While EIS offers all these services to the people who call your modem, you have complete control over who has access to what parts of your system. You can control access to specific message bases, menus, commands, file directories, and even individual files. If you wish, you can configure the system so only the people that you have already assigned passwords to will be able to access the system at all. Where Can I download EIS? ========================= EIS is currently available on America Online as EISBBS.ZIP.
