    I don't think so; passing the door info and a hot comm port into DOSBOX would be tricky. There's been some effort to build a 3rd party 16-bit DOSVDM called NXVDM (I think) that looks promising.
    Since this was posterd I use NXVdm and it works great usualy but once in awhile it gets screwy and I have to uninstall and reinstall it but i'm running a ton of door mostly smoothly for the most part

    DosBox uses disk caching so you would likely run into all sorts of problems. There is a version that's been modified but I didn't really get it working.

    if you are using dosbox for bbs doorgames and dosgames you want your users to be able to play (like i am), you can set synchronet to only let one user in at a time. right now we wont have a problem with 2 users on at the same time.
