I'm trying to host an instance of EBBS (from the files on this forum) on my Beeb, that people can connect to using TcpSer (either on a real Beeb or using BeebEm). I'm hoping to call it BeeBS. On the host am currently using the follow settings in TcpSer (the l is just for logging):
Code: Select all
tcpser -d /dev/ttyS0 -s 4800 -p 6502 -i "s0=1" -l 7
Code: Select all
tcpser -v 25232 -s 4800 -p 6501 -i "s0=1" -l 7
I have set on both the machine and BeebEm:
*configure baud 6 (4800, but have also tried at lower baud rates, including the tcpser parameters above)
*configure data 5 (8N1, with corresponding settings in Commstar and Terminator)
I have BeebEm + TcpSer running on Windows 7, and the real Beeb connected via a serial null modem cable (from Sprow) to old P4 laptop running Debian 11 (with the Fozztexx fork of TcpSer). I have also tried running the real Beeb and BeebEm through TcpSer on the same machine (using the multiple port options) but with the same result. I did briefly try BBS Server 1.4 (which I believe is made for C64, but works with a variety of hardware), this also gave the same result.
I have attached a few photographs to help explain my issues:
Attempt 1 Beeb Host / BeebEm Client
1. The host running on the real Beeb with a connection from BeebEm (notice the gibberish after scanning for baud rates) 2. BeebEm connecting to the host using Commstar and the two TcpSer instances (one on Windows 7, and one on Debian) 3. The same connection eventually timing out on the Beeb. Attempt 2 BeebEm Host/ Beeb Client
4. Output on Beeb when connected to host using Commstar 5. Host running on BeebEm with real Beeb connected On the BeebEm host the host doesn't timeout and the output log from TcpSer shows it's send data over the serial connection, but nothing is displayed on Commstar or Termulator either in prestel mode or terminal; both have been set to 4800 Baud and 8N1. I have also tried with OBBS (however that does not recognize an incoming connection on either Beeb or BeebEm). My Beeb has no problems connecting to Telstar, CCl4 or any Telnet BBS.
I'd really like any help any one can give, this is something I'd quite like to achieve...but having worked on it for quite some time now it's starting to get to the "not fun anymore" point .
