During the last days a lot stuff happend. The Network Daemon is now fully configurable, and the new "Driver" tab shows the status of the LEDs of the DenYoNet ethernet card. EdoZ made a little video for demonstating this:

You can see, how especially TX, RX and Link react on EdoZ char typing in the Telnet console.
At the same time Trebmint completed a huge part of the network support in the Unify IDE. That made it possible to write a simple but fully working internet messenger, called the "Simple Messenger", for SymbOS with Unify, which only consists of 30 lines of code - the initial development took 5 minutes :D

And so today we were able to have this very special moment: I started two instances of the messenger as a server on my MSX in Germany, and EdoZ from The Netherlands and NYYRIKKI from Finland connected as clients from their MSX to my machine directly over the internet. So I had two chat sessions running on my Z80. As this worked well, NYYRIKKI and EdoZ opened a direct chat session as well. All three MSX were connected to each other at the same time!

TBH that was a lot of fun again today! :)

To make "network" possible on other supported Z80 platforms as well and to be able to test all kind of network apps completely in an emulator I also developed the "localhost" driver this week. It already supports TCP and a fake kind of DNS, which is fine for 90% of the apps.
This was a test on the Amstrad CPC:

Let's keep this all finished for a beta release end of this month :)

Guys, I must say this is really great.
During the development of DenYoNET I hoped this would happen.
And now it did.

Thumbs up. Smile

@Yobi, it's very nice to read this! It was cool to support your and Dennis MP3 card back in 2007, and the DenYoNet ethernet card is even blasting away everything Smile It's a fantastic piece of hardware you created! (shame on me that it took 6 years for me to start the support after the release)

@Yobi: Any chance of new Denyonet batches?

Maybe this can be used as a replacement soon.

Sorry guys, I'm not going to make any new DenYoNET's.
I hope GR8NET is a good alternative.

Yobi: why not??

Perhaps you can open source the design, so that other people can build it?

Too bad that we can't have another DenYoNet from Yobi. It is a great ethernet card.

As Manuel said, can you open source the design Yobi? Such a great work like denYoNet can't be lost, with a open source project, more people can build and use it.
