A Networking Glitch
I've just successfully networked, via an ethernet switch (a fancy hub), my new Iyonix with RISC OS 5.05 to my Kinetic RiscPC with 4.03. The Iyonix kept refusing the "Hosts" file that the Kinetic had no problem with. Eventually, by putting in an extra line with a hash, (#), between each line of IP address plus IP name, it accepted it. It took over an hour to sort that one out. I,m not sure if that's the best solution or if I was doing something else wrong but it seems, to me, typical of the small but puzzling problems one runs into with setting up any system.
It will be interesting to see if David can cover all of the angles and likely problems in his new book.
Partis Computing takes over DigiFlash range Partis Computing has reveal it has taken over further development of Surftec's DigiFlash products, which it originally created for Surftec in 2001 and 2002. Existing users have been invited to apply to receive the latest driver updates. Gary Partis, of Partis Computing, said: "We are best placed for continued development of these products." Users can plug Flash memory cards into their RISC OS computers via the parallel printer port using a DigiFlash interface device. Surftec withdrew from the platform in 2003. Discuss this.
