Martin Pruefer from the
Technical University of Braunschweig
uses a Riebl-card to connect his Atari to an ethernet network.
Atari Mega ST
Riebel Ethernet Card without battery
NeXT-Station (Unix machine)
1st problem :
Not possible :
=> ftp next (next = NeXT)
=> ping next
=> telnet next
=> ping joe (joe = Atari)
=> ftp joe
'next' seems to be a reserved word for this special implementation of ftp.
Rename 'next' to any other name like 'black'.
2nd problem :
=> telnet needs a long time (abt 1 minute) for login, but works fine (and fast) after login
External transceiver (I did not debug the hardware yet).
The DC/DC converter has been replaced (no voltage), but maybe there is still another problem in the hardware.
(thx Martin Pruefer)
