PCjr: Your favorite cartridge game machine is ... a server

in Milliways
Just for giggles I registered a new domain name, setup dynamic DNS, and pointed it at a PCjr running a test version of the mTCP web server. Well, that was 3+ weeks ago. Right now is has been running 577 hours straight. It's not a terribly busy server, but once in a while it gets a burst of activity; …

Re: LAN or TCP/IP with Win 3.11 (NOT WFW)

Some things to try: Can you ping using a human readable name, such as vogons.org? If so, then DNS is working. If not, try using a direct IP address and deal with DNS later. Are you going to a site that still supports HTTP? Anything that redirects to HTTPS is going to fail with a browser that old. …

Re: Xcom (for DOS)

The networking part - i have fully implemented it, sadly the compiler i use (DJGPP) doesnt supports networking (TCP/IP) under DOS according to the official manual, so i had to cut it out from the DOS version. Maybe there are solutions to work around this - or maybe i will use a different compiler …

Re: mTCP hangs..

mTCP author here ... Just to be very clear, mTCP doesn't care if your card is full duplex or half duplex. But it is totally dependent on the packet driver. To send a packet mTCP uses a software interrupt, which in DOS is just a fancy function call to something outside of your program. To receive a …

Re: What is easiest/lightest mapped network drive setup for DOS?

in DOS
If you just need to move files on occasion and the machine can run locally from those files, then you want to do a file copy. FTP is the lightest, most direct way to do that. Shared drive letters make more sense when the machine doesn't have local storage (a hard drive), that local storage is …

Re: Ethernet on VLB

Interesting .. I'm confused on the half duplex part, as I would expect the card to support full duplex. VLB cards were not cheap, and PCNet32 derived cards should support full duplex. The BNC and RJ-45 results should always be the same, as it is just a matter of the transceiver that is being used. …

Re: MS-Dos Soundcard with Ethernet?

That is indeed correct - the DA15 is more commonly known as an AUI port, and it is for an external transceiver. This picture shows an AUI port in use with a CentreCom 210 transceiver, giving the card (a WD 8003) the ability to connect to a modern twisted pair Ethernet switch: https://www.brutman.com …
