Does the BBS run on real hardware or an emulator?  Now that
virtualization is becoming the buzzword, you could run VoIP
and a C64 emulator on some hosting provider's virtual server. :-)
On another virtual server, you'd run a telnet-VoIP gateway,
so that the BBS could also be accessed via telnet over the Internet. :-)

(Of course, the simplest solution would be to set up a telnet
to RS-232 gateway with C-Kermit or the like and connect the
BBS machine via RS-232.  Or maybe simply connect the emulated
RS-232 of VICE or some other emulator to telnet, but that might
require some low-level programming.)

I don't wonder why the VoIP line didn't work.  It might work with a
codec that used lossless compression, but not on those fancy codecs
that transform between the time and frequency domains.

Thanks, but I got rid of a fixed phone line years ago.  Does it work
with GSM data? :-)  [It actually might, but I've never used GSM data.]
Has anyone hooked a GSM phone to a C64?
