How did you achieve this?
Put Nextor and Symbos into the SD of the GR8NET and then CALLNETSETMAP(18) from Basic?
Thnx

Hi Ernibar,

Yes, you can boot the GR8NET in mapper mode and boot nextor by default. To do this, you need to be sure you have the last update for GR8NET installed. (Including PFGA update) Please have a look at the GR8NET manual for this:

GR8NET Manual

There is also a short text about it in the SymbOS manual on page 5.

SymbOS manual

Please be aware that in the SymbOS manual there is a typo. I have to change this. (It is CALLNETTGTMAP)

I have a ZIP folder which contains a installed version for GR8NET:
Use call fdisk in nextor, with a emtpy SD card. Make the first partition as FAT16 and put the files from the ZIP on it.
Put the GR8NET in slot 1 and follow the statup settings for the GR8NET in the SymbOS manual.

My personal file share

There is only one bug left to solve (that is that the network daemon is not working in mapper mode) Hope Prodatron can fix this soon.

Yes, but only if you use the mapper mode. Without it works fine. (But then you need more memory)
Anyway. I hope that it will be fixed soon. As it i a Major thing currently for the MSX.

GR8NET works fine
