PetBus

 

The PetBus 

The PetBus is an interface that is able to do several things:
- connecting the serial bus devices of the C64 family, like a 1541 disk drive, a MPS803 printer etc., to a PET computer or another Commodore computer having the IEEE488 bus **;
- connecting the parallel bus (IEEE488) devices of the PET family, like a 4040 double drive, a 2031 drive, a printer etc., to a C64 or another Commodore computer having the serial bus *;
- connecting the C64 family to virtual PC drives;
- connecting the PET family to virtual PC drives.
With a second PetBus interface, all the serial and parallel devices can be connected to the computers (PET and C64 family) through the ethernet network.
In other words, two PetBus devices are forming an extender of the IEEE488 bus and the IEC serial bus through the ethernet network.
With several PetBus interfaces, you can connect several Commodore computers to one device throught the network.
In one client PetBus you can define up to 9 PetBus servers.
The devices that are connected to each server must be defined in a configuration file.
For each device number, a substitute device number can be defined.
On the serial RS 232 port, the data traffic can be visualized in real time.

Hi. I see that you don't update your page too often. I know that writing articles is boring and
time consuming. But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from
article directories or other blogs from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new articles are unique and pass
the copyscape test. You should try miftolo's tools

Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
It's on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!
