By Chris Williams. Published: 21st May 09:24:55 | Permalink | Printable

If you have more than one computer and you're looking to connect them together but you feel using network cards is a bit of an overkill then you're in luck. Matthew Lee has published on his serial networking section website another another low cost network solution, namely networking via parallel ports.

"..the intention of the website is to give RISC OS users networking capability without the expense of buying an ethernet card", notes Matthew in an email to drobe.co.uk. Matthew, by the way, began experimenting with serial networking back when he was a student and network cards were too expensive when a simple system could be instead used.
