Quote from: CraigsBar on 19:41, 29 June 15I plan on upgrading my main symbos setup to v3 tonight. Bring on the Ethernet card, either standalone or minibooster add-on.
Quote from: TFM on 19:10, 30 June 15Did you get it working? Which network hardware did you use?
Quote from: CraigsBar on 19:21, 30 June 15After downloading I noticed that the main reason for me to upgrade will be the official release of the play city compatible SymAMP, and that is not included not much point in installing this one until a CPC Ethernet card is available
Quote from: Trebmint on 20:42, 30 June 15since 99% of normal users on here know there is no hardware as yet.
Quote from: Trebmint on 20:42, 30 June 15But consider this as motivation for hardware and emulator creators.
QuoteNETD-LOC.EXEThis version of the network daemon contains the localhost driver. It is platform independant and can be used on every supported SymbOS Z80 platform. It enables a "local" network on your own machine. Now you can start server and client apps which are then able to communicate with each other within the SymbOS environment. It is not necessary to do any configuration for the localhost driver, all IP addresses and domain lookups are always 127.0.0.1 based. The localhost version of the network daemon is very useful for testing network applications with an emulator and to have all available network applications already running on computers without ethernet hardware.
Quote from: Prodatron on 01:55, 01 July 15Feels very stupid to repeat it again and again, but yes, since march/april there is a new minibooster based hardware which enables ethernet access for the CPC.SymbOS network support development Already forgot about these photos?Btw I missed the part with "you can now buy it somewhere". Any sources? Pretty sure, that 100% of the CPC community knows, that it isn't sold right now
Quote from: CraigsBar on 09:00, 01 July 15If you can tell me where to get one I'll order one today. Just checked @TotO's store, no not there, not even on the minibooster page. So please tell me where I can get one.
Quote from: Trebmint on 09:30, 01 July 15There is no available hardware as yet. If there was I think it would be all over the wiki. TFM also knows this since the thread he points too the very next message is from Kaos saying the hardware doesnt work... And TFM liked that???I think it was made quite clear that this 3.0 beta contains a driver for the MSX network cards, and otherwise Localhost, plus a lot of accompanying software. It will only ever be of true value to somebody that has a CPC network card or when an emulator supports a CPC network card. You can try things in a limited was using localhost, or even get yourself an MSX2.It is a chicken and egg situation though... it takes something threaded like symbos to make networking worthwhile, and without that developing the hardware is of limited use. For instance the MSX hardware has no software other than that comes with the hardware. Obviously now it has symbos apps"Build it an they will come" is the policy, and I think a number of people are trying at the moment. I have no idea about ToTo, but I hope so as he's one of the CPC's most talented hardware guys. It would appear that there is a market for the hardwareIn the meantime while we're all waiting we will continue to develop software, and Unify will be out later this week so you can develop yourself if you wish
Quote from: Prodatron on 10:31, 01 July 15There is a working hardware since april, but no-one ever said, that you can already buy it, or did I?
