• Connection Issues...

    From Gary McCulloch@39:902/518 to All on Sat Aug 11 22:09:09 2018
    What would stop me from connecting to some boards? The reason I ask is
    that from my internet connection there are some boards I can not connect to, but if I try with my phone with 3Glte it connects just fine.
    The two so far that I am having issues with is:

    The Wrong Number's CNet BBS -
    wn2 (dot) duckdns (dot) org:6400
    Power BBS -
    powerbbs (dot) ddns (dot) net:2300

    My first thought would be that your IP was blocked, but on my board and I am not sure if CNet does do IP blocking I know I didn't block you. If you want
    to test whether or not its my software try coming in on port 2323 or 23, I
    have two PC boards running there and if you connect in with no issues then you can rule out address blocking, If they block you, then it has to be something else.

    Port 23 worked. Seen your Mystic BBS. Port 2323 and 6400 did not. I am going to try later from my network with a different system and different term.
