I used it, but stopped. It is a nice user friendly wrapper around existing networking tools. But at a certain moment the built-in Samba didn't work with my NAS anymore. AmigaKit never responded to my ticket about this. I cannot speak for the Easynet Pro version. Nobody even explained to me what the Pro has more on offer compared to the non Pro version after multiple requests. That total lack of support by AmigaKit was another reason I stopped using it.

My preference now goes out to Roadshow. It seems complex without a GUI, but in practice it is the easiest stack to get quickly running, even from boot.

Roadshow is excellent, once you have it configured it just works, your Amiga boots and boom - you are online with zero fuss

It also integrates nicely with WHDLoad to stop/start networking as you start/stop games to prevent random lockups.

Since 2011, Amiga Kit is the exclusive distributor of AmiTCP v4 and EasyNet Pro is built around that stack. The standard version of EasyNet is built around the earlier v3.

EasyNet Pro is still being improved and we have some new exciting developments to share in the next coming months.

I even tried that (via amiga.org I believe) some time ago, without any result. Not needed anymore, is around 3 years ago. I'm more than happy with Roadshow.
