 This week I will be putting the The Cottonwood BBS in the spotlight!

Operating on All American BBS v12.6b

Running on a Commodore 64 with two 1571 disk drives.

Cottonwood BBS is best viewed on a real Commodore computer with a terminal program that supports Commodore Graphics (aka PETSCII). Alternatively, CGTERM is an excellent program for both PCs and Macs that emulates a real Commodore Graphic terminal program. However, the first time you call Cottonwood BBS, you need to be using an ASCII terminal program. This is because AABBS software switches to ASCII mode for the application process. So my advice for PC and Mac users is to call using a standard terminal program for your first call, then use CGTERM for all calls thereafter.

hehe, I really enjoyed logging on to this BBS! I ran a BBS on an Amiga 1000, oh so many years ago!
Back in those days I ran TransAmiga BBS Software.

  2. After a little over 3 years of downtime, Cottonwood BBS is now back up and running! The software and the address has changed, but it’s still a great BBS. 🙂

    Check it out at the following Telnet address (port 23):
