I've seen it work the other way around. In the mid-to-late-80's back
in Madison, WI there was an 8 line chat system called "Warlord Chat".
Warlord had built it and written the software himself. The central
system was an IBM PC (ISTR it was a 5150 rather than an XT). It was
"networked" to four Atari 400s. I assume there was a serial
connection from the PC to each Atari. Each of the Ataris ran two
The competing system in town was called "the Bee Line" which had a
similar capacity, but I think it was built out of Apple II systems.
