PC2Amiga Software - Connect an Amiga to a PC.

I used PC2Amiga to network an Amiga 600 to a Pentium 1 computer with 10gig of hard disk space. This allows my Amiga to access the PC's hard disk as a device. The system is totally transparent on the Amiga.

It consists of a parallel cable connecting the two computers parallel ports. The package includes software for both the PC and the Amiga. The PC software requires Windows 95/98 and DOES NOT run on Windows XP. The Amiga software requires Kickstart 2.0 or higher.

NOTE: Some PC motherboards don't have full parallel port circuitry and hence will not work with this project. I've found using a plug-in I/O with eveything but the parallel port disabled works best.

I managed to get it running in about 2 hours. Most of the time was spent fiddling with the PC and Windows installation though. All in all it was a fun project and I recommend it to all Amiga fans.

At the moment the two systems are packed up in storage. Soon, however, they will be unpacked, set up and have photos take for posting here.
