I am looking for a simple, free BBS system to install on my own windows 2003 or 2008 server. This will be a prototype student message board for a small post-graduate school. The school has no BBS System setup or a way for students across different degree programs and years to communicate with each other (other than yahoo groups, etc. which individual student groups setup themselves).
I want a BBS system where users can create topics and threads. On a windows IIS server (with MS SQL backend of any flavor). I want to install this, so it can be ported to a school owned server in the future.
Prefer an open-source or free solution for now, but something I can host to keep the data secure.
It's been awhile since I messed with this, so pointing in any direction would be appreciated.
Windows because I have some servers and am familiar with IIS-SQL.
