Now that we have a network route for RISC OS to use and have told RPCEmu to use it, we move onto configuring RISC OS to work with that route.
Networking has been tested with RISC OS 3.50, 3.71, 3.80, 4.02 and 5.17. Please report any other OSes that work (or not) to the RPCEmu Mailing List.
Install a !Boot with a network stack
On RISC OS, the network software is included inside the !Boot application, make sure you've got a suitably modern !Boot installed.
- For RISC OS 3.50-3.71 use the Universal Boot from Acorn.
- For RISC OS 4.02 use the Boot from RISCOS Ltd, "RISC OS 4 Disc Install". DO NOT USE the Boot provided on the ISO CDROM image, it does not work for some reason. Also reports that the Boot on the RO4 'Virtually Free' CD is also broken in a similar manner.
- For RISC OS Select (4.19 to 4.39 and 6.xx) use the !Boot provided with the ROM image in your RISC OS Select dsitribution.
- For RISC OS 5.xx use the Boot provided by RISC OS Open Ltd in the HardDisc4 self extracting archive.
Install the 32-bit Shared C Library
The RPCEmu network driver requires the 32-bit Shared C Library. On all versions of RISC OS (other than 5.xx) this will need to be installed.
Visit http://www.iyonix.com/32bit/system.shtml and download and install the appropriate archive for your version of RISC OS.
Install the RPCEmu Network Driver
Your distribution of RPCEmu should have shipped with the following two directories inside HostFS in the 'Network' directory:
Install these by dragging them onto the existing directories of the same name inside !Boot.
Use the table the table below to help you locate the correct directories for your versions of RISC OS:
|RISC OS 4.02||!Boot.Resources.!System||!Boot.Resources.Configure.!InetSetup.AutoSense|
|RISC OS 4.39||!Boot.Resources.!System||!Boot.RO430Hook.Res.Configure.!NetSetup.!IFSetup.AutoSense|
|RISC OS 5.xx||!Boot.Resources.!System||!Boot.Resources.Configure.!InetSetup.AutoSense|
