Supporting Wildcat! SysOPs for 20+ years!

WINSnet is a small FTN echomail network set up by Thomas Kloos, Frank Rauhuff, and Robert Wolfe to support Sysops who run Mustang's Wildcat! for DOS, or Santronics Software's Wildcat! Interactive Net Server BBS software.

This network would not be possible without the help and guidance of Terry Roati of the File Bank BBS in Cairns, Australia. Thanks Terry! I owe you one!

How to join...

To Join, select Join from the menu. You will be taken to a simple online form. Complete that form and setup the necessary message and file echos. You will then be sent an email with any necessary details, and we will begin sending you messages.

The preferred transport method for WINSNet mail is via telnet/VMODEM thru Netserial. Netserial is by PCMicro and they offer a Sysop price of $25. They offer a 30 day trial. Visit This works great with PXOnline.
