question: networking w/ an A2000 + WB1.3

category: general [glöplog]
It appears people at Amiga.org and amigaworld.net don't have an answer. Does anyone here know if it's possibile with some standard ethernet card? How?

No I mean LAN + internet gateway.

Maybe you can find an old NE2000 card for Amiga 2000.
Maybe you can find a driver for it.
Maybe you can find a tcp/ip stack for 1.3.
Maybe you can find a some PPP driver for such Amiga.
Maybe you can make all this work together.

Upgrade to kickstart 3, add some memory, try to find a network card, install some decent tcp/ip stack, install samba and off you go.

no the aim is lan on 1.3 .. if a c64 can do that an amiga with 1.3 must do that.

I know there are RJ45 <-> parallell adapters out there. If someone will write a driver for them then gettning on the internet with a vanilla 500 or 2000 would be a lot easier. I still don't know if there is a tcp/ip stack for kik1.3 though.. Btw, the isa slots in your A2000 are useless.

yes, there's a tcp/ip stack on aminet which runs under wb1.3.. the problem is there's no ethernet to attach. I was trying this under winuae which has a virtuale device (uaenet.device).. no cigar. The stack is in AmigaNOS

Then try to find a zorro2 network card and it should work.
