||Ezycom is a shareware Bulletin
Board System (BBS) program, first introduced for MS-DOS by Peter Davies in 1991.
It is still under active development by the Ezycom Support and Development Team.
The current version of Ezycom is v2.15g2.
supports several features that make it "easy" to use (hence the name) including:
multi-node operation (up to 255 nodes depending on license type), network and multitasker
support, Fidonet-compatible message base, built-in echomail and netmail tossers,
built-in file transfer protocols and QWK/Blue Wave offline mail support (including
offline netmail support). Ezycom is being used with the Windows, OS/2 and eComStation
operating systems with success.
Ezycom comes with a complete set of default menus to allow you to
install your BBS and login after a minimal amount of configuration. You can also
create your own set of menus and ANSI/ASCII screens allowing you to customize your
system, making it completely distinct from any other Ezycom BBS.
One of Ezycom's most powerful features is its ability to interact
with Fidonet Technology Networks (FTN). The Fidonet concept was invented
by Tom Jennings around May 1984 as a way to connect many BBS's together so that
they could exchange electronic mail. His original concept with the help of
many other BBS community notables has developed today into a solid and mostly reliable
way of exchanging mail between BBS's. The network in which the technology began,
Fidonet, now has over 8,000 member systems around the world. There are also literally
thousands of other networks run by different groups using the same technology which
are often referred to as 'othernets'.
also been tested with Telnet servers such as GameSrv
and Net2BBS, allowing you to create a system
accessible to the entire web-based community. You can also combine this option with
your dial-up service to expand your user-base.
