I think standard telnet will do that.  It should be available with MiNT.

This would be another option - take a standard Atari communication app
that you
like and add telnet support for it.   You may even be able to write a small
wrapper that redirects the current serial port to a pipe that feeds into
telnet.  At that point, most any terminal program will work fine.   MiNT has
the capability to redirect just about any port to another device or PIPE.  In
some respects, its more flexible than linux.

Where can I grab the source?  I can throw it into the cross compiler I have on
my other box.   What CPU do you want it optimized for?

A BBS running on a cable modem?  Upstream bandwith wouldn't be very good for
that - and I may know someone that can have it hosted.   I'm not able to
connect to that IP myself.   Do you know what software is being used?
