A Freeware Telnet FOSSIL driver for Windows

NetFoss allows DOS based BBS software to work over a Telnet or Serial port connection under 32-bit editions of Windows (including Windows 10), as well 64-bit editions augmented with NTVDMx64 (using NF64).

NetFoss will work with any DOS BBS software that is FOSSIL aware, such as BBS software, BBS doors, Doorway and DOS BBS serial/modem communication terminals. NetFoss can also be used with native Windows BBS programs (32-bit and 64-bit) , to allow DOS based doors to work over Telnet.

NetFoss changes FOSSIL-based applications to network-based without modifications to software.
NetFoss can redirect Non-FOSSIL aware DOS I/O console programs to telnet connections.
