(About the author)
     Half-finished, ansi capable, multi-threaded telnet bulletin board system (BBS) written entirely in VB. I modelled it slightly off of Telegard. Be sure to extract the files into the root of your c drive. It'll create a directory called ZBBS. Follow the instructions in README.TXT. To test locally, run the following: telnet Default login is SYSOP, and the password is SYSOP.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Nicely done... Been in the BBS scene for years, and never really seen someone make such a quality BBS (well close to for an alpha ver) entirely in VB... Good job!

No, each form does not have it's own thread space. If the forms resided in an ActiveX EXE, and you used CreateObject to create each form, they would be multi-threaded.

Not that anyone has actually looked at this in years...but TJ, there are no EXEs in this ZIP. And you would be foolish to run them if there was one.
