Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
Just FYI - posted another update Added a command line option to allow non-interactive operation (eg: transfers within .BAT) Makes it easy to auto-move file(s) between systems as part of a "greater" operation.

Re: Injecting files into a running PCem/86Box machine

This is active in another forum, but I'll mention that I wrote a tool back in the 80's which I do find to be the simplest/best (for me) way to move files on/off and between older DOS systems (real hardware and emulations): DDLINK (available free from my site) is a tiny (16k) .COM which can move …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
Did you try mode + ctty? Have you looked at FreeCOM's copy source? https://github.com/FDOS/freecom/blob/master/cmd/copy.c I also posted some notes to the FreeDOS-Devel list which may have some response to what I suspect is a bug. I have looked at MODE and CTTY - with MS and PC DOS, the COM port …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
I've spent some time determining which byte values are/are-not blocked in FreeDos: COPY COMn: file and have adjusted my bootloader accordingly... Just in case anyone in interested: I've looked at making the initial "boostrap" code (copied by: COPY COMn: file) purely printable ASCII characters ( …

Re: DosBox BootfloppyDisk

another update - improvements to FDI, bootable images contain DDLINK 1.7 with improved bootloader (can bootstrap to FreeDos now) Dave Dunfield ::: https://dunfield.themindfactory.com or: "Daves Old Computers" -> Personal (near bottom)

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
It's simple enough to download and try it - I do much of my DOS testing these days with "real DOS" booted on DosBox - see my "DBBD" (DosBox Boot Dos) tool! But sure, here are a few DDLINK ScreenShots: [1] [2] < Images in [3] [4] < each .JPG DDLINK1.JPG: (1) Main screen, local" system on the left, " …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
The original post was about adding protocol documentation for a small utility that facilitates file transfer like FTP. Just a note ... DDLINK is NOT FTP :-) yeah! I said that! (-: Keep in mind that this is a DOS program, most FTP clients I've used for DOS are simple command line tools (I'm sure …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
I've spent some time determining which byte values are/are-not blocked in FreeDos: COPY COMn: file and have adjusted my bootloader accordingly... I just posted a new Version (1.7) of DDLINK which can "bootstrap" better with FreeDos! Dave Dunfield ::: https://dunfield.themindfactory.com or: "Daves …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
Does anyone happen to know how to reliably enter an END-of-file character in the FreeDos console during a COPY/B from the console? DDLINK can Bootstrap itself to another system via the serial port. It does this by (eg: COM1): > CTTY COM1: <- User has to do this > COPY COM1: DDLBOOT.COM transfers a …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
Interesting program! Going to give this a try at some point. Our LAN back in the 90s was mainly IPX, as many of the DOS games we played used this. We used Kali Chat to transfer files, which worked ok but wasn't the most convenient way of doing it. Just copying entire folders over with Win95 …

Re: Retro Rig Photo Thread

You can see almost all of my "retro" systems at "Daves Old Computers". Lots of pics and description. In the process of downsizing and moving to a more suitable location, I've passed most of these on to new homes... But here are couple which are NOT on the site: As part of above mentioned downsizing, …

Re: DOS virtual filesystem

I move files to and from various DOS environments all the time, using a little tool I wrote years ago called "DDLINK". DDLINK is free from my site (below) and performs decently fast file transfers over Serial (up to 115200), Parallel or LAN (both much faster). It's small (15k .COM) and needs only a …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
> Thats why TCP/IP won.... TCB has a lot of nice advantages for a multi-site network, but as a couple others have pointed out, DDLINK is a completely different animal than any such "standard". DDLINK was designed to be a very simple way to move things around quickly betweem systems that may not have …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
I rarely need full networking in DOS these days... but getting files to/from for example my ImageDisk system (which has to be DOS as it accesses the floppy controller directly, and in very non-standard ways) - As some disk images can be well over a meg... network really helps - DDLINK works very …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
Thanks, Never tried it -... just from "looking around" - FastLynx 3.3 - Not free - Big! - the "demo' I found is 1.2M (DDLINK is 15K - my download DDLINK.ZIP is 37K, but that includes some documentation and source to a .C program to help "figure out" the protocol). - FX33DEMO.EXE contains "This …

Re: DosBox BootfloppyDisk

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
If you're able to run a VM, you're able to run Netware in there, and that's the best way to network DOS and old Windows to modern systems I think. DDLINK differs from most other DOS "networking packages" in some very positive ways: - It doesn't have to be "installed" (just run) - It's TINY - easily …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
Thanks for making all your work available in one way or another. And glad you're healthy enough to do stuff like this! Thanks, what happened to me in 2019 was a real "perception changer"! I've been in this industry since the 70's and I've written a *LOT* of stuff over the years. And being anal …
