Software and Downloads

PlanetMUG uses the First Class communications platform, which provides a refined, cross-platform user interface. The Planet BBS is accessible directly over the World Wide Web or through client software that you can download from this web site. While web access is more convenient for many people, most of our members find the client software faster and easier to use. See below for download and setup instructions.

To log into The Planet BBS via the web, click the "Login" link at the top of the page.
