IS there a Network HELL?????

There must be as I am in it! My first attempt was with the A2088XT and several PC isa card with no luck at all !! I pity any poor soul whom tries to get this setup to ever work! So I have abandon my A2000 bridgeboard and
countless ISA network cards and now have moved on to my A3000 and a Zorro II card made my Hydra Systems so far I have tried Envoy 3 no luck then I tried ACS Novell client No luck there either Might Someone suggest so
other feindish means or torture to trie bamboo under the fingernails or such
Or is there someone here whom could offer constructive help in how to bet this blasted damn thing to connect to my G3 Mac running 10.4.4 or my PC running windows XP to connect to send files across.

Serial or parallel connection, perhaps?

If you can't do a real network connection using network items (because iffy hardware, as it seems), serial and parallel interfaces, a bit of freeware software and a cable may do the trick.

I've setup serial based networks between Linux/BSD systems and Miami in the past. However if all you want to do is transfer files get yourself a copy of Minicom(OSX)/TeraTerm (Windows) and NComm (Amiga) and transfer them via ZModem.

No wonder, it sucks.

Ok, the hydra is a pretty solid card.

No wonder, because Envoy 3 can only connect to other Amigas running Envoy 3.

No wonder, since this can only connect to other Novell Netware computers.

Yes, constructive help:

Get a TCP/IP stack for your Amiga.

Among the recommended at the time of writing are:

- Miami
- MiamiDX
- AmiTCP

An old version of AmiTCP can be had for free, Miami and MiamiDX must be pirated these days, as the author is refusing registrations.

Here are comprehensive instructions on how to install the aforementioned free version of AmiTCP:
http://www.acc.umu.se/~patrikax/amig...miTCP_Install/

After you have installed the TCP/IP stack and have managed to ping your Mac or your PC, you have some options:

- FTP (ncftp, AmiTradeCenter)
- SMB (make the shares on PC and use smbfs http://sourceforge.net/projects/amiga-smbfs/files/ )
- AmigaExplorer (the client is Windows only, you run the server on the Amiga and then the PC can access your files over the network)

I'd probably recommend AmigaExplorer as it is the easiest to get going out of those three.
