Connecting the Amiga 1200 to a BBS using a modem in 2014
Feeling a bit nostalgic or do you just miss the old times of hanging out on Bulletin Board Systems like it was 1995 again? Dan Wood from Kookyech.net will help you set up your old Amiga to use a PC as a soft modem for some good old memories down the BBS lines.
In Dan Woods own words,
Fancy re-living the BBS days on your Amiga? The BBS scene still exists, but these days they all use telnet, so your old dial-up modem is not the best method in 2014.
Using a cheap null-modem cable and USB to Serial adapter you can use a PC as a virtual modem and re-live those heady BBS days again!
My USB To Serial uses the ch340 chipset and has the model name HL-340, they can be had on ebay for quite cheap, it’s the same as this:
