Fidonet Portal


FidoNet was started in the early 1980's by Tom Jennings in San Francisco, California and some friends of his who lived in Baltimore, Maryland. Initially, communications consisted of simple messages going back and forth between these systems. Tom's Fido software was the next step in allowing a BBS (Bulletin Board System) to exist in the network. At FidoNet's peak in the 1990's, some 30,000 systems communicated worldwide in the FidoNet network.


This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
