Hi Vicky,

I find that using tcp/ip on the Amiga is best done through a proper ethernet card. In my opinion, using the parallel ports makes it prohibitively slow and useless for any web browsing or anything. IRC is fine, though.

There are more "user friendly" TCP/IP suites out there. Recently someone put together a very lightweight and easy to set up suite but it is not free. It is handy, though. I can't remember the name, a lot of amiga.org people use it if I remember correctly. I'll try to dig it up for you.

AmiTCP is a bit...broken. The installer doesn't work properly and you have to manually go enter data into the config files, user.startup, things like that. And you have to add the script/executable flags on a bunch of files...what a pain! But when it works, it works
