 Packet Wormhole  Gateway and FBB BBS  fully operational.

(IP addresses updated 15 March 2019)

Work has been continuing with the configuration of jnos Gateway and the FBB BBS.
The latest version of Jnos 2.0J has been compiled and is configured to provide the facilities required to
 function as a wormhole using the 44 AMPRnet  Network with all facilities such as
telnet, ftp, convers, email and BBS facilities to name a few.

The jnos Gateway appears to be operating as expected and interested persons are able to telnet
or browse using http to the gateway and FBB BBS by using the IP numbers below.

(Telnet to jnos  port 23 )

( http to jnos )

(Telnet to FBB BBS port 6300)

First time uses of both systems are able to log in under "guest" status and can request various connection
privileges by sending a message to the sysop... don't forget to leave your email address for confirmation.

It is suggested that a program such as Winpack  would be an easy way for users to access the
jnos gateway and the FBB BBS. using telnet.   It is still available as Winpack V6.8.     Just google it.

Investigation into the the return of RF ports are under way and will of course depend on user interest.
