Networking an Amiga

Hi Guys

I want to network my amiga to finish putting my demo collection to ADF.

I'm actually going to put my "Magic Pack" series online, on a dedicated website but I wouldn't mind a bit of help if possible.

I've been given a Dynamode PCMCIA Ethernet card by a friend who says it definitely works on a A1200 but he can't remember which drivers etc to use.

I've never networked an amiga before as I'm from the old old days of the amiga scene, can anyone help me with regards to what drivers I use, how I get the flipping thing installed and do I need something called "Miami" or another TCP/IP stack?

Thanks for the help chaps!

  1. You need the CNET or 3C589 driver for your PCMCIA network card
  2. You need a TCP/IP stack (such as Miami, Genesis or AmiTCP)
  3. Networking software to connect Amiga to PC (SAMBA, Amiga Explorer etc.)

Check out Aminet for the first two, AmigaSamba webpage or Cloanto for the third.

I heartily recommend AmigaExplorer from Cloanto. But remember to tweak the packet size to get the best transfer rate.

Thanks for the info dude, appreciate it.

Which IP stack would you recommend? Are they all free?
