Best network setup?
I was wondering, what is the best network setup for the Amiga thats cheap?

I heard about Null Modem and Serial, I always assumed Serial was the best one, but a lot of people seem to use Null Modem?

In terms of compatability and price, which is best?

Nullmodem *is* serial. You need a serial nullmodem cable to connect two computers (similar to a crossover ethernet cable).

To connect a computer to a device (e.g. a modem), you need a normal (non-nullmodem) serial cable.

You cannot connect two computers with a normal serial cable.

As you've got an Amiga with PCMCIA, best would be an ethernet network card (3com or NE2000).

Ah... well thats me told. :D


Do you need DB25F to DB25F to network 2 Amiga's?

You could use a parallel cable, which is faster than null modem (serial) and cheaper than ethernet. But still slow compared to ethernet and probably more difficult to set up.

For a nullmodem connection I use a DB25F(Amiga) to DB9F(PC).
