 A BBS can have one or more command shells available for its users (configured in [[util:​SCFG]]->​Command Shells). If the BBS has more than one shell available, each user can pick their shell of preference in their user configuration menu and the BBS will remember their shell of choice and use it for each of their logon sessions. A sysop can even make select shells only available to specific groups/​sub-groups of users based on a wide range of [[:​access:​]] criteria (including terminal type/​capabilities). A BBS can have one or more command shells available for its users (configured in [[util:​SCFG]]->​Command Shells).

The default command shell (''​default.bin''​) is officially referred to as the //​Synchronet Classic Shell// (it emulates the Synchronet v1 user interface) and if you and your users have no special requirements or preferences,​ it'll probably be the only shell you'll ever need (source code is ''​[[dir:​exec]]/​default.src''​). If you or your users are used to another BBS menu/​command style, there are shells available which emulate the style of other classic BBS programs (e.g. WWIV, Renegade, PCBoard, MajorBBS, Wildcat!, etc.) as well as shells which are intended for use by users of limited BBS experience (e.g. //​Synchronet Simple Shell//), and specialized shells (e.g. ''​sdos''​ emulates MS-DOS and ''​lbshell''​ is a full-screen light-bar shell by [[person:​Deuce]] written in JavaScript).+There are many existing Synchronet command shells available (e.g. [[ftp://​vert.synchro.net/​main/​BAJAMODS/​00index.html|here]] and [[ftp://​vert.synchro.net/​main/​SBBS_3RD/​00index.html|here]]). ​
