Yesterday evening I was trying to use my C2N232I with c2nload and cbmlink to 
transfer some software from an IEEE device. To my avail is a non-CRTC PET 
with Basic 4, labeled 4032 although with the small monitor and the same 
motherboard basically is a 3032 with upgraded Basic.

I tried both the "pet3001" and "pet4001" server programs. I was able to load 
both, but neither works reliably with cbmlink once started. I have enough 
ROM/EPROM to downgrade my PET to Basic 2, effectively making it a 3032. 
However in the release notes for cbmlink, it says that the 3000 series "may 
not work", so perhaps it is a moot point?

In the process of fiddling, I tried to hook up my CBM 610 too, but after a 
number of cycles to get all cables and cartridge with server software set 
up, this machine suddenly lost its video signal. I tried to reseat chips, 
but to no avail. I'll have to troubleshoot that at a later stage, hopefully 
it hasn't broken down badly.

I do have an IEEE interface for the VIC-20 too, perhaps that one would work 
better with C2N232 and cbmlink? Alternatively I could combine the IEEE 
interface with uIEC/SD and something like CBM-Command on the VIC, assuming 
it can copy binary files between arbitrary devices.

A couple of years ago, I had a 8032 on which I got the setup to work, but I 
don't have that one anymore.

Best regards
