"RiscOsNet was written in Python and appears to require RISC OS 6 and 4.39".

What about RISC OS 5? Well the help file states "It has been developed and tested on a Castle Iyonix running RISC OS 5.0x" - amazing that drobe missed that one and only listed them ROL RISC OS flavours :-)

Help further mentiones "It is reliant on the MiniZip library file in RISC OS Select to zip up shared downloads; MiniZip is currently not available for RISC OS 5 and appears not to work on the A9." Strange, indeed to use that since there are Zip apps around for all RISC OS variants - be it SparkFS or InfoZip.
