This software will help you transfer software to your classic Macintosh (e.g. MacOS System 6, 7, 68k Macs, etc) using the serial port. Very simply, this software runs on a modern host computer, and behaves like a BBS would back in the day. You connect your Macintosh to the host computer using serial, and then, using your vintage computer, you can search and download files from online archives (e.g. Macintosh Garden, Mac Repository). However, this "BBS" has only one user, you!
I don't see why you couldn't use this pseudo-BBS to transfer software to other kinds of computers as well.
