Re: Castle 10/100 RiscPC NIC—driver versions?

I'd expect this kind of weird behaviour if the switch port is doing auto-negotiation but the NIC isn't. You mentioned configuring the switch port auto-negotiation for 10Mbps so I'm assuming you've disabled auto-negotiation at both ends. Have you tried configuring 10Mbps half-duplex vs full-duplex at...

What FTP server software are you using on the Win7 machine? The path on the client will be relative to the root directory configured for your FTP server, so "/" on the client will map to "G:\FTP" on your server.

OSGBPB makes a heck of a difference with file transfers over Econet, which need a 4-way handshake for every byte with OSBGET/OSBPUT.

Storage benchmarking

I want to see the effects of changing my Econet clock rate on ArduinoFilestore performance but I can't find any storage benchmarking programs for the Beeb. Before I go and hack something together (probably a sideways ROM to avoid depending on a filesystem), does anybody have any recommendations?

Re: Arduino Filestore

*FS 170 shouldn't hang, unless you're doing it on an emulated Beeb rather than a Master, in which case it's probably trying to load the "FS" program from the network.

Have you tried installing a packet sniffer like Wireshark and capturing UDP packets on port 32768 to see what's going on?

Do you also have an entry in econet.cfg for your station 63? e.g. something like:

Code: Select all

Re: Wiring for Wild Vision Chroma 300 podule RGB in

It will be the same pinout, but those machines have their DE-9 socket on the PCB, so they don't help when trying to work out which colour wire from the podule should go to which pin on the DE-9 plug, even assuming there's a standard convention for wiring colours.
