We have a Rover 322, and wanted to know whether it was possible to add a network adapter, so we can easily transfer programs to the machine, instead of the currently used floppy drive?
The PC inside is an old 486 machine, with only ISA expansion slots. We managed to get a few ISA network adapters, but of course a change to the OS is needed.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this subject?
you can buy a com adapter from biesse.... expensive!
will run on up to windows 95 using a program rtcom.
most of the controllers used in these old machines will only run max 11k programs. approx 400 lines. so it depends what you want to do.
you cannot use it to drip feed code.
there is a program to write floppys from windows xp etc.
what model number control does it have? 480/481 etc?
so much to learn, so much to pass on.
