Don't really know, but after informing asimovlookerafterer of a Trojan.gen.2 in the Wasp.exe's a week ago, I received a response from Isaac Asimov!--But, the author, Isaac Asimov, is a ghost!--He must really love the Apple II.

Well, I do not own a IIgs - but if you use the SSC and f.e. PROTerm 3.1 it should work as on an Apple II/ IIe.

PROTerm:
Set modem driver "Null Modem Driver (RTS/CTS)"
Set online parms to 300 baud - you can change this later.

SSC:

If you use a standard cable or just an adapter to connect the WiModem232 with the SSC then the Jumper Block should point towards "Modem" - if you use a null modem cable the block should point towards "Terminal".

Switch block #1:

1-off
2-on
3-off
4-on
5-off
6-off
7-off

Switch block #2:

1-off
2-off
3-off
4-on
5-on
6-on
7-on

The WiModem232 ought to work just fine on the standard serial port with a standard (DIN-8 to DB-25) serial cable.

Could not find any info about this UtherNet Beta testing at the official UtherNet II website: <http://a2retrosystems.com/>. Is this new NEWS or just a gimmick to get people to check out your telnet site?

Impressive! I don't have nearly that number of users on Captain's Quarters. Maybe I should be nicer to the Commodore users. Nah...

Or are they 500 unique users, or a handful who registered under a whole

I'm guilty. I forgot my user number and password twice before finally taking a screenshot on the third time so I could log in regularly. But I do enjoy the BBS from my //e so hopefully that makes up for it.

I was under the impression provided you popped in more serial cards, that GBBS would/could run more than one line?
