A while ago I wrote a thing about running an old school BBS over tor: https://github.com/ajroach42/Docs/blob/master/TorBBS.md
If you know anything about tor or BBSs, would you mind giving me some feedback on it? I'm going to polish it up and publish it today.
Err, polish it up today. Publish it the week.
@ajroach42 synchronet...now that’s a name I hadn’t heard in a while :)
@DHeadshot It does not.
@DHeadshot automating what?
@ajroach42 Make note of this command, you’ll probably end up running it a couple of times by hand, before we set it up to happen automatically.
The first time we start it, we’re going to start it by hand. Later we’ll automate this.
@DHeadshot Oh, yeah yeah yeah, that's done.
@DHeadshot zmodem specifically is interruptible and restartable, and my understanding is that it is more efficient than strict telnet transfer.
That being said, it's also a matter of convention and expectation.
@ajroach42 added to my favorites. I was a BBS kid growing up in the 80’s. Lots of great memories. This might be a fun project to do!
@ajroach42 can you recommend a kit off Amazon? So many options, not sure if one is better than another. Haven’t done anything with raspberry pi kits before.
@Snowcrash I wouldn't recommend a kit, personally.
If you're going to run it headless, you just need an SD card, a case, and a power supply. For what I'm proposing a pi 3 would work fine.
Pi, power, case, SD card. That's it.
@ajroach42 Sorry to bother you again. Can you have multiple HiddenServicePort sections in the same HiddenServiceDir of /etc/tor/torrc and thus run many services on the same Onion URL?
@DHeadshot and pretty easily I'd add.
@DHeadshot ah! That's the bit I'm working on now.
Basically hostfiles or running your own dns.
