Welcome to the Amstrad BBS (Bulletin Board System) for Amstrad Computers inluding CPC, PCW and PPC. With Sinclair & Spectrum areas too!
The Amstrad BBS was setup to support Amstrad computer enthusiasts, fans and users - offering a community, chat and file archive. Most importantly, the Amstrad BBS allows Amstrad computers a resource that they can connect to directly and interface with! No World Wide Web browsing capabilities required! So get your Amstrad online and join other Amstrad users around the world... We even include Sinclair and Spectrum areas too (as Amstrad owned Sinclair in their later years)!
We welcome you to login and register or visit as a Guest. We won't judge you if you don't access the BBS using Amstrad hardware, but you'll certainly get extra respect for using the Amstrad BBS via RS232 or serial connection (Note: for CPC owners you can use a PACE RS232 and wifi232 board etc).
Host address: amstrad.simulant.uk
telnet on port 464
rlogin on port 664
ssh on port 6128
Most terminals can connect with a command such as telnet amstrad.simulant.uk 464 which should get you online and then ask you for a login or if you'd like to register or view as a Guest.
We also offer a Wifi modem which connects via the rs232 serial port to most old retro computers (including Amstrads that have a serial port already or CPCs with the PACE rs232 expansion):
The Amstrad BBS is brought to you free of charge by Simulant Systems Ltd, a small UK based IT company with a love for all types of tech both old and new. We started out on Amstrad CPCs (and Sinclair ZX Spectrums too!). We just wanted to give back to the Amstrad community by running this BBS and ensuring we can still get our old Amstrad hardware online and connected to other users.
