For Macintosh users, FirstClass by SoftArc ($295, 905-415-7000), NovaServer by ResaNova ($119, 714-379-9000) and TeleFinder by Spider Island ($695, 714-453-8095) offer the tools to set up a full-featured BBS.
The software will give you options for setting up a BBS, including customizing the main menu and setting up security measures (such as the option of verifying all users before they gain access).
In these networks, messages posted on one BBS can "echo" through electronic mail to another.
So, theoretically, if you list your BBS on the mail-board of Blacknet, users of other BBSs, such as Afronet, will have access to your posting as well.
