    Maybe I'm lazy, I dreamed to make TWGS work on linux with wine or something. >But for now it's just running in it's individual windows XT vm where only the >2002 and 2003 port open. It takes little resources so i like it like that.

    At some point in the future, once I get a couple of other BBS projects out
    of the way, I am hoping to find a TWGS server or two that I can hook up to
    and offer TW that way. I am convinced I won't get it running here again
    unless I move the BBS back to OS/2 or DOS. :)

    Myself i just *telgate from my linux bbs to the local ip of my local twgs server. You can even set twgs to rlogin so you pass the synchronet user name
    to twgs so it's very transparent. myself i set the telnet because i offer it also on it's 2002 port for people who want to bypass the bbs.

    tradewars stopped working here after I upgraded to Debian 9 and I have
    given up getting it running again. I don't have the server version
    registered, to my knowledge... just TW2002 and Gold.

    I don't remember which Debian I'm on (I think I last upgraded earlier this year or late last year), but I have had more success with dosemu2 than the distributed version of dosemu.

    I *think* this is it: https://github.com/stsp/dosemu2
