-==== Irc, Internet on X68000 using null modem cable ==== 
  
- This article is a kind contribution by our forum member **Neko68k**. Thank you for shedding light on this rather grey area ! 
- 
-First of all you will need to download these: 
-|[[http://​nfggames.com/​X68000/​Mirrors/​x68pub/​x68tools/​UNIX/​NETWORK/​pppxr5.lzh|Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) Driver]]|pppxr5.lzh| 
-|[[http://​nfggames.com/​X68000/​Mirrors/​x68pub/​x68tools/​UNIX/​NETWORK/​TCPPACKA.LZH|TCP/​IP Driver]]|TCPPACKA.LZH| 
-|[[http://​retropc.net/​x68000/​software/​system/​rs232c/​tmsio/​TMSIO031.LZH|RS-232C Driver With Buffer Control and Hardware Flow]]|TMSIO031.LZH| 
- 
-It might also be useful to install [[http://​nfggames.com/​X68000/​Mirrors/​x68pub/​x68tools/​HUMAN/​TwentyOne/​tw136c14.lzh|TwentyOne]] (long file name support) if you haven'​t already. 
- 
-  *unlzh PPPXR5.lzh 
-  *put PPP.SYS in \SYS 
-  *put PPP.X KILL.X and PPPX.BAT in \BIN 
- 
-If you install PPP.X anywhere else, be sure to modify the first line of PPPX.BAT to point to that directory. 
- 
-I found it helpful to add the following line to the end of PPPX.BAT: 
- 
-<​code>​inetdconf +dns 192.168.0.1</​code>​ 
- 
-You have to do this anyway so might as well just make it happen. This is to point at your dns server, I used the IP address of my router. ​ 
- 
-While you're at it, change: 
- 
-<​code>​inetd</​code>​ 
-to 
-<​code>​inetd -t -1</​code>​ 
- 
-This allows internet to work in KOWIN. 
- 
-  *unlzh TMSIO031.LZH and put TMSIO.X in \BIN 
-  *unlzh TCPPACKA.LZH and merge the folders it contains with your existing \BIN \ETC and \MAN 
-  *edit \ETC\hosts and \ETC\networks to reflect your actual network, for example: 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-# 
-# /etc/hosts 
-# 
-127.0.0.1 localhost localhost 
-192.168.0.11 x68k x68k 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-# 
-# - /​etc/​networks 
-# 
-127 loopback 
-192.168.0 private-net 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-Optionally add this line to \ETC\services,​ clat asks for it: 
- 
-<​code>​irc 6667/​tcp</​code>​ 
- 
-Add to your config.sys the following (RSDRV.SYS comes with Human): 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-PROCESS 16 10 50 
-DEVICE = \SYS\RSDRV.SYS 
-DEVICE = \SYS\PPP.SYS 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-Once this is complete plug in your null modem cable and reboot the x68. A wiring diagram for making a null modem cable can be found here:  
- 
-[[http://​www.gamesx.com/​wiki/​doku.php?​id=x68000:​file_transfer_between_windows_pcs_and_x68000_machines_using_null_modem_cable|File transfer between Windows PCs and X68000 machines using null modem cable]] 
- 
-  *On your x68k run PPPX.BAT. On the emulator this throws an error, it can be safely ignored. 
-  *Once at the ppp> prompt type '​term'​ and push enter then switch to your Linux box. This also throws a couple errors in emulation and they can also be ignored. 
- 
-  *On your Linux machine(I am using Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat) open a terminal. 
-  *At the prompt type the following where: 
-    *192.168.0.10 is the host IP, 192.168.0.11 is the x68k IP. It doesn'​t matter what these are necessarily as long as they dont collide with any other IP addresses on your network. 
-    */dev/ttyS0 is your serial port(ttyS0:​COM1 ttyS1:COM2 etc) 
- 
-<​code>​pppd -detach crtscts lock proxyarp 192.168.0.10:​192.168.0.11 /dev/ttyS0 38400</​code>​ 
- 
-If everything worked you should see something like this: 
-|{{:​x68000:​internet_1.png?​400|}}|{{:​x68000:​internet_2.png?​400|}}| 
- 
-To test it out try: 
- 
-<​code>​ping google.com</​code>​ 
- 
-and ignore any errors that may occur. 
- 
-You can try the following Web browsers: 
-  *[[http://​nfggames.com/​X68000/​Mirrors/​x68pub/​x68tools/​UNIX/​NETWORK/​lynx27r0.lzh|Lynx]] is probably as good as any. 
-  *I tested [[http://​nfggames.com/​X68000/​Mirrors/​x68pub/​x68tools/​UNIX/​NETWORK/​vwxb25.lzh|VWX]] and it had serious out of memory problems. 
-  *I also tested [[http://​w2332.nsk.ne.jp/​~gonta/​arc/​wx046_0b_0206220.lzh|WebXpression]],​ this version works very well. 
-  *For IRC I recommend [[http://​sharl.haun.org/​a/​x68/​clat-beta5.tar.gz|Clat]] 
- 
-To configure clat, put clat.x somewhere handy and create a file called clatrc in the same folder and fill it in as follows: 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-SERVER irc.efnet.org 
-NICK yournick 
-MAIL blah@whatever.com 
-NAME whatever 
-USERINFO blahblahblah 
-QUIT yourquitmessage 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-{{:​x68000:​internet_3.png?​400|}} 
- 
-You have to be in the directory you installed clat.x and clatrc or it will fail to find the clatrc file. I think the docs said there is a way to change that but I didn't follow up on it. If you have TwentyOne you can also call it .clatrc but it doesn'​t matter. 
- 
-I didn't test out NFS but it seems pretty straightforward. 
- 
-Keep the scene alive !
