     demo:      not currently

Yabbs is a server/client BBS system for Unix.  It is designed to run
efficently with many online users.  The current version supports
unlimited users, multiple talk channels, 26 public message bases,
one email message base, and gopher access.  It currently comes with a
unix server and client.  An X-Windows client is in development, although
there is no projected release date for it.  A Windows NT port of the
server and client are also planned for the near future.

It should port to any Unix system that provides POSIX complaince and
sockets.  It has been tested on: FreeBSD, NetBSD, Linux, HP/UX, SunOS,
and Ultrix.  The source is fairly well commented.

I ran a development-yabbs system on my NetBSD machine for two years, so
the system has been well tested and is currently very stable.
