Hey guys,

For all of you out there with a networked IIgs, I've set up an A2SERVER for you to connect with via AFPBridge (https://sheumann.github.io/AFPBridge/).

Use the url afp://appleiigs*ddns*net/ApplePi to connect. (Replace * with .)

The server contains Shrinkit archives of whatisthe2gs.apple2.org.za (thanks Alex!), so browse his site then download directly from the server to your IIgs hard drive. Large HD images will not be on the server at this time, such as his various collections of games/apps, so you'll still need to download those from his site.

There's also Qkumba's ProDOS conversions in compressed folder format on the server. Download, decompress, and start playing!

IIgs-related text files from textfiles.com are on there too.

Leave a message in the "I was here!" folder if you get on. Hope to see you there!

BTW, Uthernet II cards are still available from A2RetroSystems if you weren't aware (http://a2retrosystems.com).

Todd

I've been meaning to get my IIgs online, but I haven't played with Marinetti. Soon I promise.

Sell that PC of yours and you'll have plenty of money for an Uthernet II! ;)

Chuckle, I think I'd have to pay someone to take them away....I couldn't even give a couple away not to long back... sent them to recycle in the end. :/

I just noticed that the serial number on my Uthernet II card is 434, so there must be at least that many out there...

Are you sure you haven't got another 433 there somewhere?

Are you trying to imply that they are hard to find? Glenn still sells them.

Sweet setup!

I’d like to try:

Apple IIgs with Apple II Ethernet using MacIP Link layer --> Cisco 1720
Router running a MacIP server

Perhaps that person can help with the Cisco setup necessary. I really don’t
know what I’m doing with the Cisco router.

Thanks
Andrew

For the Uthernet and Local Talk deprived... you can go the PPP bridge...

IIgs - Marinetti - RasPi - Internet -
or any other pi

You won't get better than 19.2k less overheads this way.

I have to admit I still don't have this working, but I've had a bit on my plate.

From anonymous guy on my server:

Getting the Cisco to work was a pain in the rear.
The software on the router is the first obstacle. There are literally dozens if not hundreds of different versions of the software for any given model of Cisco router. Only a small few of them support routing of AppleTalk traffic. They (the softwares) are also paywalled by Cisco. If you don't have a paid account with them (enterprise level costs), you will have to go a-pirating. AT YOUR OWN RISK!

After getting a version of the software that works (very difficult). Then there is the setup. It's different for every network and circumstance.

I actually had to do a course on Cisco routers and networking to grasp it.

I could successful login and browse the server with an Apple IIgs and Uthernet II :-)

I don't know if this is supposed to still be up or not, but with GSplus
running System 6.0.4, I'm getting "An unknown error occured. [sic] ($0706)"

IIRC, this is the same error I've been getting trying to get it talking to a
local Netatalk server.

It's still up! Must be something on your end. And I have not played around with GSPlus at all so unfortunately I can't help you...
