beepage - A Unix-based, Internet-aware text paging system that implements the Telocator Alphanumeric Protocol (TAP).

beepage is a client/server package for text paging. Text pages sent over TCP/IP are received via TPP, or Text Paging Protocol, by the provided Unix-based server, which transmit the data to any paging service providers that support the Telocator Alpha-numeric Protocol (TAP).

Two beepage clients are currently available:

  • "beep" a Unix command-line interface
  • "winbeepage" a Windows graphical interface

A Mac OS X version is nearing release.

The server is supported on the following platforms:

  • Solaris
  • Linux
  • OpenBSD

It probably works on other Unix-like operating systems.
