Default Re: Dial-up bulletin boards

Another issue has occurred to me if I were to try accessing the US bulletin boards whose numbers I found on the net, and that is that (being American) they presumably use the Bell protocols rather than CCITT. Although my WS2000 modem supports these, they are said to cause problems within the UK telephone network.

Perhaps I would be best sticking to communication between computers connected to my own PABX.
