Lightbulb Amiga<->PC TCP Nullmodem

I recently download NullTCP from aminet. It explain how to share an internet connexion available on your PC with an Amiga using a simple Nullmodem cable.
I would like to do the reverse thing. Share my ADSL connexion available on my amiga with the PC. Unfortunately, i've not too much knowledge into networking.
Any help appreciate.

You have your Amiga hooked up to your ADSL-modem, and want to share that over to your PC?

At the very least, I think you need MiamiDX to do that. But I'm not sure of how to get the Amiga to talk TCP over the null-modem cable.

I remember setting up something similar, only the other way around (Internet-connection to the PC, shared with the Amiga). I might have used NullTCP (can't remember, as it is some time ago). But I also remember setting up a PPP-server on the PC, and then using AmiTCP to connect to that, over PPP.

I did it the other way round too, with Miami connecting to my PC running pppd... through nullmodem...

But Miami does not provide net access to other machines methinks. I bet there is a port of pppd on the Amiga, or a similar thing!

It's less trouble to just buy a cheap router and NIC for the PC? Less than $50 bucks and youdon't need to switch on one computer to use the other. My setup is a cable modem with a Linksys router connected to my PowerMac, WinXP box, Linux box then an uplink to a hub, which connects my other A4000. And 4 more free ports. My A1200s may be next.

Linkies (as we call them with my cousin ) are really nice routers. I recommend such a purchase too.

I think it's possible to do that with MiamiDX. In the .guide they talked about PC<->Amiga TCP network via NullModem, they also refer to the possibility to share an amiga-internet connexion with others amiga/pc but i'm not sure it can be done via NullModem.

While posting this thread i hope someone already do this with his miggy.

Thanks for hints.

Hmmm, MiamiDX (AFAIK) has an internal routing function, just route your ADSL connection to the PCīs IP and you should be set Just donīt ask me how, I use the normal Miami (without DX)
