@Darklord Do you know any FTP server programs for the Falcon ? I want to use the PC to with FileZilla to access the Falcon FTP server. The one I have keeps crashing :( Though don't know why as sure it used to work.. 20 years ago...

EDIT:

Now ping isn't working again :pullhair:

You want UIP-Tool for the EtherneC:-

https://bitbucket.org/sqward/uip-tools/downloads/

Just run it under a plain system. It provides a web server and FTP server to which you can connect from modernia.

Does its own TCP-stack. You don't need MiNT or STiNG or any of that old tosh.

AIUI with HDDriver you can choose a bootable partition table or the dual TOS/Windows one. To that end I've been looking into having a boot CF-Card and a removable SD card on the Falcon's IDE bus. Annoyingly all the SD/IDE adapters I've found seem to be hard wired to IDE Master.

The only thing I know that lets you boot straight off a Windows-readable block device is EmuTOS.

You're golden.

EDIT: it's not *the* most relaible thing in the world. You may need to cancel and restart some transactions. It's all about timing again. You can get much faster transfers with DFB1, for example, but you're more likely to have to restart them when it gets its knickers in a twist.

It's pretty reliable at 16MHz, but it's probably really tailored for 8.

I remember when I used to use ghost link used to sometimes get into 80s and would have to reboot.

So got this far..

Ahhh this thing is flakey as hell. It lists my hard drives, then times out when trying to upload files via FTP :( Will try the other versions.

EDIT:

Seems I can download files from the Falcon to the PC. But sending files to the Falcon does not work :(
