    Default Amiga networking (is this in right area?)

    Im looking to network my amiga to my pc to get the files off my Amiga HD and backed up on my pc.
    Does anyone know how to sort this out.
    I was gonna do it as a parnet link up but dont know how to do it.
    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    it is possible to do this with a parallel transfer cable! dont use a parnet cable coz pc's dont like them much!

    cloanto do some software called amiga explorer that will let u access the amigas drives thru an explorer type window! they sell it as part of the amiga forever package! u could probably find it on kazaa or if not pm me mate! One good feature of this software is u can transfer all the files u need to set up the amiga from the pc so in theory u dont need to even touch the amiga (Altho i didnt have much succes at that)

    alternitvely u could do it thru a null modem cable with a terminal package running on each end! NComm is a good one i used to use on the amiga! Theres also a bit of software called twin express which u run on both the amiga and pc and it does pretty much the same thing! U can find this on the aminet [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Alternitively get hold of a copy of amithlon part of the amigaxl package and just plug your amiga drive into your PC! works a treat!

    I paid 100 quid for it If it wasnt coz i liked my amiga so much tho i wouldnt of paid 100quid for it! easy to use either boot from the cd or make a small partition (i used 15meg) copy the files across and use the loadlin command to boot it (it runs a modified linux kernel)

    Think they have stopped selling it now due to troubles with lisenciing Altho Amithlon V2 is out soon and a demo version is gonna be available FREE (This version also has nowt to do with Haage & Partner who ****ed up the lisencing on V1)! then u can purchase the full thing at a "supposedly" considerably less price as it will be amithlon on its own and not AmigaOSXL (which runs on top of QNX!

    I didnt put my amiga HD in my PC tho coz its a 2.5inch one and only got Workbench 2.04 on it! I made a seperate partition and installed OS3.9 which came with it and it ran a treat! if it supported my modem i would probably be using it now!!

    they did have a copy on kazaa but it looks like it aint there no more! there are copies floating around on the net tho!

    yeah i went to a world of amiga show in 97 (i think) and a bloke i knew from the days when i ran a BBS was buying all the stuff to put his in a portable case!

    u used to be able to get kits to do them with they were called PAWS or something (Portable Amiga Workstation) they looked kool!

    I got two laptop screens one small LCD and a TFT but connecting them is a bitch! the electronic deign geeza's at work had a mooch and they thought it wouldnt be too easy neither! gutted still got 3 amigas lying round here!

    The PC running amithlon runs a **** site faster tho! only problem is the compatibility with some software!

    I copied my old A600 harddrive contents onto my amithlon partition and alot of the software wouldnt work too well so i got a copy of UAE for the amiga and emulated an amiga on the emulated amiga and it worked a treat!

    We are now up to Update 4 of the pre-release and it Roxx0r

    Hardware options.. A1-XE & µA1's no longer available (around 1.5K in circulation).

    back on topic, its piss easy to network an a1200 if thats what you've got. Just buy a compatible pcmcia ethernet card and get the correct libs. I got mine off ebay for about 6 quid iirc
