StormDoor is the first (and only) BBS Doorkit written specifically for Visual Basic.
StormDoor is compiled into an ActiveX object (OCX), so it can be used from within many
different Windows programming languages including VB, VC++ and .NET. It's very easy to
use, supports ANSI, and realtime multi-node communication. Multi-node communication is
accomplished using windows sockets (via UDP protocol) to communicate between the multiple
instances of the door.
Some current limitations of StormDoor are that it only supports the door32 dropfile format,
only supports telnet connections (sorry, no COM), and (obviously) the door game will only
run under the Windows operating system.
