DESCRIPTIONbnetd is a program that will eventually completely emulate a Battle.net(R) server. Currently Starcraft(R), Brood War(R), Diablo(R), and Warcraft(R) II BNE are supported as clients. It is known to work under most versions of Unix and can also be used under Windows as a win32 console application.
