Hello and advice


I ran across this site and I was intrigued as I have always wanted an Amiga. I have quite a few Pi3's around so I purchased the ROMs and got a basic WorkBench up and running.


Now I am wondering what software can I use to utilize my Pi3 tcp/ip stack and emulate a modem to connect out to retro-BBS' via telnet. And of course how?

No need to run a tcp-ip stack in the emulated amiga part. Just setup network on your pi. And then it just works. :)


Edit : Did't read your question verry good. :) But nicom with the correct lib would to the job i guess?

OS3.9 works well with the tcp stack. I did have to install 'telser'. It basically creates a virtual.serial port called telser.device. I can then map it in a terminal program and issue basic AT commands to connect to telnet bbs'.


Trying the same on WB3.1 says I need to install AmiTCP. Have not figured this one out yet.. Getting there though..

Shift838: Did you ever get this working fully on 3.1? I'd love to see your workup of it.

Yes, I got it to work fully on the Raspberry Pi3, but it's slow as hell.

I tried copying over my copy of C-Net BBS over from my WinUAE version on my PC. My BBS only has 5 lines available. When I tried to run it, I ran out of memory. I was wondering if there was a different BBS program that isn't a hog and run on the RPi. I've seen plenty of Mystic BBSes running on the RPi, and they fly very fast. DLG? Zeus? /X? Trinity? Suggestions to try?

    While looking through troubleshooting stuff for SD card problems I stumbled across this page and found out something new. You can boot your Pi from USB, but it appears to be a one way deal and permanent. I remember earlier there was a way to boot from the SD and switch to USB. I may go that route if my read/write problems don't stop. See link below:

    Amibian 1.4 doesn't work on RPi 3A+. Has anyone been able to get it working? Thanks in advance!

    Hello there. Apologies if this has been asked before. I intend to purchase a Raspberry Pi purely for Amiga emulation, and was wondering if there are any benefits to getting a Pi 4 in terms of performance? Perhaps less lag or something similar? I am aware that there aren't many builds for the Pi 4 just yet. Thanks.
