There are several Amiga BBSes running today.
Two most popular Amiga BBS software are Ami-Express and C-NET BBS Software. Our
ArakNet Amiga Boards are mainly C-NET BBS systems. If you are running an Ami-Express
BBS system, we would love to have you join us.
// C-NET BBS
C-Net is a large Amiga software package with over 70 different software applications
all of which had to be reviewed, tested and compared to the previous release to
ensure a stable first release. After a year of working on
, On the 1 year anniversary of acquiring it, was released once again. It was over 7+ years from
the last release of C-Net, but it still by far competes with best BBS packages out
there and the release of C-Net 5.10b on December 31, 2006 has passed the test of
time and reliability.

Ami-Express - also known as /X - by Synthetic Technologies was a popular BBS software application for the Commodore Amiga line of computers. AmiExpress was extremely
popular among the warez scene for trading (exchanging) software.
AmiExpress was created and updated between 1992 and
1995. The software was originally written by Michael Thomas of Synthetic Technologies
and later sold to Joseph Hodge of Lightspeed Technologies. Mike Thomas worked on
Ami-Express for about two years, modelling the software after the commercial PC BBS
software PCBoard. He first ran a BBS on PCBoard on a PC himself, but he was not
happy with the PC platform in general and decided to make a comparable product on
A Usenet post (by /X author Joseph Hodge) later stated that both programming on /X and the developer company (LightSpeed Technologies Inc.) were to be dissolved, with
plans for a new bulletin board system - Millennium BBS. This never surfaced.
In 2018 Ami-Express was revived
by Darren Coles. He obtained permission from Joseph Hodge to continue development of the product and
to continue using the name Ami-Express. Version 5.0.0 was released publicly at the
end of 2018. This version was re-written in Amiga-E by taking the publicly released
source code for v3 and reverse engineering the new functionality present in v4.20.
It is highly backwards compatible with the v4.x versions and adds many new features
and the source code is available on github.
