AmigaKit Secures AMITCP 4 Distribution Agreement

AmigaKit Secures AMITCP 4 Distribution Agreement

September 2nd 2013

AmigaKit, long-standing Amiga computer retailer and developer of the EasyNet software has secured a distribution agreement for AMITCP 4 with the developers, NSDi.

The deal will result in AMITCP 4 being available once again for commercial sale integrated into the forthcoming EasyNet Professional Edition package.

EasyNet is a modern Internet networking package for Classic Amiga computers, which also provides a front end for AMITCP.

Existing users of the standard EasyNet will be eligible for a future upgrade package to the Professional Edition.

Managing Director of AmigaKit, Matthew Leaman, commented: “We are pleased to once again support the Amiga and bring new software developments to market. EasyNet will continue to be upgraded over the next few months and beyond, re-affirming our commitment to our customers and product. The inclusion of AMITCP 4 into this package will strengthen the application and give users more functionality.”

Tomi Ollila of NSDi commented: “We, the creators of AmiTCP/IP are pleased to see there is nice market for the Amiga machine and operating system that has taught us so much during it's existence and we hope this agreement with AmigaKit makes it even better.”

AmiTCP? Why not include Roadshow which is faster and still fully supported by its author instead?

We have built EasyNet around the AMITCP core files and have invested many years in development. We are adding to the application and provide support for it.

I also thought that Roadshow is faster, but AmiTCP kicks Roadshow's ass if you tweak cache sizes the same way.

Could you please elaborate on how to accomplish that cache size tweak?

Thanks in advance

Cool news!

Last time i tried to get amitcp working with my 3c589.device (pcmcia ethernet) i recall having difficulty. As such i now use Genesis as it's wizard is a piece of cake. Is there such a thing for AmiTCP now?

one thing I could never figure out is how to get the stack started at boot, and silently. I have to manually start genesis and this irritates me :/

Download the X-Surf-100 driver archive from http://wiki.icomp.de/wiki/X-Surf-100 and use the AmiTCP config file provided in there.

Yes its EasyNet - it has been out for some time.

In the next few months we will be developing EasyNet which will have quite a few new features added.

Genesis is just a GUI/Wizard for AmiTCP/IP. So, you're actually already using AmiTCP/IP 4.6

I don't see any reason to try switching to any other GUI/version if it works fine you already. I myself have prefered Genesis all these years.

Put some interface with auto-online option, main window as "closed on startup", run it from user-startup? Can't try it myself now, but something like that?

aha, i knew i was using something from it as OS3.9 says it's going to install it when updating via BB1 or 2. Didn't think that Genesis was purely a GUI for AmiTCP though!!
