That's kind of what Jeff Ledger is getting at with his CML project, but he's invented his own CBM-specific protocol rather than implement the 'standards'. http://www.orrville.net/cml/ Alternately, the PC could be running a PPP/SLIP server, or something like Jim Brain's TCPSer or my BBS Server. The latter two are really modem emulators, but they do provide the null-modem<->Telnet link you're looking for. http://www.jbrain.com/pub/linux/serial/ http://home.ica.net/~leifb/bbs/ But once you have Telnet on the C64, why not just Telnet to a Linux box and use Lynx etc? </devil's advocate> Regards, Leif -- Leif Bloomquist leif(at)schemafactor(dot)com ICQ# 10360135 www.schemafactor.com Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
