Hi! Lance Lyon írta: > > Ummm, what are we supposed to be looking at exactly ??? Some time ago there went a discussion on this list about TCP/IP and web functions, for Commodore. The device they offer is a standalone unit with TCP/IP and webserver capabilities in one (+ lots of other features). It is based on an Atmel microcontroller + an NE2000 compatible Ethernet controller chip (Rtl8029? if I'm right). It can be connected directly to a LAN, while, on the other side, it features an RS-232 connection. I'm not sure about all its details, but it lite a lamp - this is something that could be useful for someone with C= + internet plans. I've also seen some similar embedded stuff examples, if we're at the subject. http://www.redrival.com/dr_ed/awards/pic2k/code.htm " This code runs on a PIC16F877 that is attached to a standard PC ethernet card (NE2000 compatible) and allows the microcontroller to act as an HTTP (web) server. (Source code in C, sch in a GIF file)" http://www-ccs.cs.umass.edu/~shri/iPic.html IPic - A Match Head Sized Web-Server Actually, it is an SO-8 PIC12C509 microcontroller, with 1kword of code memory, no hardware interrupt and UART capabilities :-O ... SLIP connection, 115kbit/sec. Communication is realized with bit-banging. It is 'the previous record holder'... http://world.std.com/~fwhite/ace/ WEBace - webserver in an 8-pin Fairchild microcontroller (SLIP). Actually, it's online even now, you can check it via a link from this page ;-) (it's online since 1999 :-O ). http://world.std.com/~fwhite/spud/ Another PIC based webserver, that was capable to run on a 'battery' formed by SIX POTATOES for about 2 weeks :-O. (People seem to have too much freetime... ;-) ). Well, that's true, their design couldn't be 'used' all-in-one in the subject of our beloved computers, since 'we' rather need a web browser / e-mailer and the like (applications) - but they're probably good examples of how small a simplified TCP/IP stack could be (and the PicoWeb stuff could be even more useful, since it could solve all Ethernet interfacing and TCP/IP stack related problems in one unit). ...I'm not playing with the idea of doing some net activities from a Commodore, but someone on this list could. (I've seen links from one of these pages to Andre's pages with his 6502 operating system, and LUnix :-D. Well, that's the spirit...)
