Hi all,

I was wondering if you could help me.

I've resurrected my c64 phase... ya know.... buying magazines with BASIC programs, spending all day typing them in and spending about 2 days finding where you made the fuk up lol.
And... sticking your tape in to load a game, going for dinner and coming back to your room only to realise it didn't load properly lol.

Any whoo.... I'll stop my reminiscing lol....I'm looking to connect my C64 to the i Internet and to also transfer files from/to my PC.

My goal is to play online games through my C64 and to mess about with some BBS stuff and maybe even a server of some sort.

Some day I'd like to also setup some sort of I/O's, telnet into my C64 via my iPhone and mess about.

I've seen this card:

Is this any good... are there any for sale? Will this get me to my 1st stage.... e.g. getting my C64 on to the Internet and maybe (a bonus) connecting to my home PC via LAN?

Thanks loads :)

Hi and welcome back to the world of C= :)

FBNet is currently out of stock according to Fotios website. Your other options for a network card is to buy a Retro Replay or MMC64 and a RR-Net adapter, or a MMC Replay. All should be available from various places. Or you could even go for a Ethernet enabled 1541-Ultimate if money is not an issue =) There are some other options as well.. I'm sure somebody can fill me in here 8)

As for your goals:

* PC/C64 file transfer: Warpcopy 64 (network), MMC64/Replay, 1541U
* BBSing: GuruTerm (does anyone know the status of Skyterm?)
* Server: Contiki 1.1
* Online gaming: Artillery Duel .Net, BBS gaming =)
* Help me out here folks...
