Yeah, but I am actually trying to avoid using my rPi3 for that as a “bridge”, because I am always “on the move”, I work and do my fun stuff on my macbook or my iPad Pro. Both have a dosbox instance, but only the mac has a dosbox with ne2000 functionalities, and a VM on VMware Fusion.
Basically, I want to be able to connect to mIRC, surf the web a bit (I know it is limited really there today), read my emails on outlook, access the shares on my network, and run a webserver so I can develop low level websites (obviously I will not test them on IE5 and this machine!).
mIRC and shares do work, a webserver is possible, FTP is possible, SSH isn’t, read my emails is possible (with stunnel and another machine in the middle) and web browsing is also somewhat possible (maybe with webOne or the web rendering proxy script and another machine).
But I believe there is room for improvement and make it almost unnecessary to have a machine in the middle “translating” it between the VM and the internet.
The iPad dosbox instance can also connect to the internet, but without Ne2000, it uses slirp, winsock, and another machine with a script running and acting as a fake isp through dosbox’s serial modem. The script runs only on linux, for a mac it requires to be reworked and I would like to run it all on my mac but I am not a programmer.
I’ve found this script here:
