Re: QL Network Protocol(s)

Hi Jason! Well, thanks to the help received from everyone here, I have now got my simple QL network file server working well enough for me to release the source code - it can be found at: https://github.com/dandelion-labs/QLAN This provides an inexpensive (~15 GBP) route to adding SD storage to the ...

Re: QL Network Protocol(s)

Hi again Jason! [Thanks for the correction to my earlier post - forever getting my PNPs and NPNs mixed-up! I've edited the earlier post accordingly.] So, the different OS platforms that can 'talk' QL/ZXNET broadly encompass: Vanilla QDOS (incl. Minerva for this discussion) QDOS + TK2 (just 'TK2', he...

Re: Hello & help needed with QL networking and TK2

Thanks for confirming, Marcel! Jason, coming back to your enquiry over the SCOUT: [quote jll74556]I've noticed that the scout appears to have some data encoded into it (some variation of the NET ID?), even though it appears to be completely ignored, however can this data be used to reliably differen...

Re: Hello & help needed with QL networking and TK2

Hi Marcel! And as far as I can see it doesn't demand a header on LOAD, or where have you seen that?Marcel We have seen it empirically when running (some versions of) TK2 - see below. My quick review of the latest TK2 source (from SMSQ v3.34) was sloppy - I realise now that only if the requested file...

Re: Hello & help needed with QL networking and TK2

I'm using the Minerva 1.98 ROM that was provided by Tetroid's ROM switcher - I'm assuming it must be the unpatched version. That's likely - I don't believe the I/O Fix version of 1.98 was available when Tetroid was building his multi-ROM (I have one of those too - very handy device.) Nevertheless, ...

Re: Hello & help needed with QL networking and TK2

Hi Jason - you're very welcome :-) It does seem odd that TK2 SAVEs BASIC files (over the network) without the header, but expects a header on LOAD. I agree - arguably a design-bug in TK2. Worth noting that it probably won't be just over the network, but over any 'simple serial' device where the FFh+...

Re: Hello & help needed with QL networking and TK2

Hi again Jason So, I've manageed to take a look at both the latest Minerva and TK2 source and can confirm the following, which should help you understand what you are seeing: a) SAVE across both QDOS/TK2 will only store the program ASCII characters - there is never a file-header added - in fact SAVE...
