Hallo, I found following email in the map "concepts". > Ask Cameron Kaiser for a beta of Hyperlink 2.5, he could probably use > another PAL tester. You can take a peek at > > http://www.armory.com/~spectre/cwi/hl/web.html To quote the page: "No SuperCPU, REU, or even SwiftLink/Turbo232 required! All you need is a compatible modem and Unix shell account." I'm a little bit confused by " you need this and that" and "it won't fit in a C=" I heard before so that I almost don't believe what I read. Just the "UNIX shell account" puzzles me. Does this mean you need to hook up your C64 to a LINUX-PC (or whatever) first? Until now TCP/IP stack, ppp, SLIP etc. are all software items. The phrase "a C= has not enough memory" I don't accept because you can expand any C= with memory in one or another way (REU, GeosRAM, 64KB-memory expansion or even self made hacks). The main question is: is a C= _fast_ enough? > Walk down to the nearest computer shop and order an ISDN modem. Last info: about $100.- Little bit out of my budget. > RB> FYI, connecting a PC card to a C= is no problem. I've done it, > RB> including 16 bits! (OK, no DMA) > > Details please -- what kind of card? What about IRQs? I'm working on it, just give me some time, OK? :) About the "no DMA", I didn't implement it just because of lack of knowledge. Nowadays I think I am able to connect a 8237 to a C=. Any ideas how this could be made usefull?
