Citadel is an advanced messaging and collaboration system for groupware and BBS applications. Users can connect to Citadel using any telnet, WWW, or client software. Among the features supported are public and private message bases (rooms), electronic mail, real-time chat, paging, shared calendaring, address books, mailing lists, and more. Unlike other collaboration servers, Citadel provides its own data stores and is therefore extremely easy to install; you don't have to "bring your own" email and database because they're built in. The server is multithreaded and scalable. In addition, SMTP, IMAP, and POP3 servers are built-in for easy connection to Internet mail. Citadel is both robust and mature; it has been in production since 1987.

The PunBB JumpBox provides a fully self-contained instance of the powerful PunBB forum in the time it takes to download.

It may have fewer bells and whistles than other forum applications but it has an intuitive user interface and renders XHTML-compliant output.
vmodemd is a telnet server designed to run old DOS BBS systems and door games. It listens for incoming TCP connections on a defined port, does a minimal telnet handshake if needed, and then starts to proxy all data to a PTY which is bound to a dosemu virtual serial port. vmodemd supports any number of virtual modems, can display customized banners if all modems are busy, can terminate a serial app when a telnet connection is unexpectedly dropped, and run custom scripts before passing control to dosemu, allowing you to pass relevant data like incoming IP address to the DOS app.
