have some one done a Swiftlink emulation that works with rr-net ... it would be nice to be able to use all softwares that uses Swiftlink as connection to the net without re whriting them

maby it can be written as a plugin for the mmeR card for saving the ram on the c64 for the softwares ... i supose it need this tcp(ip stack and stuff

:oops: dont know i´m just thinking of so many softwares i founds that uses swiftlink and not rrnet :D

What you actually describes is basically RS232/Telnet bridge. Yes, there are such devices. They used to be quite expensive though, but I guess you could find them cheaply nowadays! Google is your friend! =)

You should buy an old laptop from some thriftshop for a couple of $10 and use that as a server. The noise and power consumption is minimal and you can put it under your bed :)

Well... i dont think you can emulate a userport modem without extra hardware anyway. Some RS232 signals are fed directly from the userport to the CIA and accessed by read-only registers which the BBS or Terminal program reads. I.e, it's impossible to control these registers by software only. However, I think the Userport has some extra signal output pins not used by the RS232 interface. It would probably be possible to construct a hardware dongle that goes in the userport and takes these "extra" signals and loops them back to the proper RS232 pin. Thus, by controling these lines you would control the RS232 port and could emulate a modem. Interesting! :D
