Installed Files

This image is built upon the extensive collection in jgoerzen/dos-bbs. Please see that page for details on DOS and the underlying configuration.

Renegade itself is installed in G:\RG.

See the jgoerzen/dos-bbs documentation for more.

VNC console and telnet ports

The jgoerzen/dos-bbs will describe this. Please refer to it.

The node basically does this to start up a Renegade instance:

h:
cd ADF
lh adf COM1 3F8  4 115200 8192  8192  8   (load the FOSSIL driver)
g:
cd rg
renegade -N3 -Q -B115200   (where 3 is the node number)

You can start up the DOS console with dosconsole. To access the Renegade config system, run the above commands, except at the end, omit the -Q -B115200.

You can connect to the local BBS with ATDTlocalhost.
