Hey everyone, I want to connect to a BBS (for a game called portal) but I am not 100% sure on how to. I believe that I just need to buy a 56k modem and plug my phone line into it, then just dial into it using HyperTerminal. Is this correct? I don't need a dial-up ISP because im not connecting to the internet right? Also my phone service is VoIP over coaxial cable (I think) will this still work?

This guy here talks about using VoIP to connect to a dial-in BBS.

He got it to work but it sounds like he had a lot of problems with lag.
