Title: Online with the PCW
Post by: TynH on 05:23, 22 June 21
Hi just made a very basic video demonstrating a telnet session and PCW in general.

Nice one!

Bit concerned that your C: user area is empty. Did I supply the DOM? Can't remember...  :doh:

You did indeed  ;D
Sorry btw for not really mentioning you and your work more prominently. Should've planned the video a bit better I guess!

What hardware did you use to be online? What did you use with the RS232 interface. Can you tell me the hardware you are using?

Hi sorry for the delay! Used the original Amstrad serial interface

D 25 to 9 pin adapter

Other serial to wifi adapters are available, including a D-Sub 25 version which didn't work for me but your mileage may vary!
