    I watched a video on YouTube of a guy using lynx on through synchronet and the dos door Doorway. I thought lynx was only Linux based. Anyways can someone tell
    me how this is done. How to install doorway to synchronet and get it working with lynx? The video:

    Cool. If you have a native version of lynx for your OS (e.g. Win32 version for a Windows BBS or native Linux version for your Linux BBS), then you don't need doorway - Synchronet can intercept stdio from this program and redirect the I/O
    to the remote user.

    And even if you did have use a DOS version of lynx (which doesn't really sense), I woudl recommend using Deuce's cioxtrn over doorway for that purpose. But I can't think of why you would need to go that route.

    I use on linux native lynx, its work fine from synchronet. You must
    remember to add options to -restrictions parameter to avoid filesystem
    access and another security cercerns.

    Saludos!
