This is a quick port of SerialBridge 68k. I altered the template so that it defaults to serial.device unless specified otherwise. That way if for example you wanted to share a modem between your A1 and another Amiga or some other device, you only need to specify the units, buffer, and baud, like: 'SerialBridge 0 1 1024 115200' instead of the more tedious: 'SerialBridge device0=serial.device device1= etc... I don't have any hardware handy to test it so let me know if it works :-P -=-=-=-=- Original ReadMe -=-=-=-=- This program allows you to make a bridge between two serial devices. "For what purpose ?" you may ask. Well.. I have a Commodore 64 with serial port and wanted to telnet to C64 BBS's on the internet. I use NovaTerm on my C64 with a Turbo232 Cartidge. You can get some gateway software for "other" operating systems, which act as Hayes modem emulators which will allow you to use the C64 via null modem to the PC and connect to telnet BBS's. Amiga OS already has the excellent telser.device to allow any software on the Amiga using a serial port to connect over the internet instead, so to get my c64 connected, all I had to do was to make a bridge between the Amiga's built in serial port and telser.device (and connect the C64 to the Amiga with a null modem cable). I first searched Aminet and did find a program that would do the job (called serial router) however, it used only a 1 byte buffer which meant high speed communication wouldn't be possible. I decided to write my own. I guess some ideas may come from the serial router source, so thanks to the author for the original idea. Anyway this small program was born. I guess it can have some other uses also. If you have an amiga with a modem, and more than one serial port, you could share the modem with another computer connected with null modem. I guess you can do the opposite with telser device and run some bbs software on the c64 and have people connect to you over the internet also, but I have not tested this. Usage: SerialBridge ? Device1/K/A,Unit1/N/A,Device2/K/A,Unit2/N/A,Buffer/N/A,Baud/N/A,Mode/N,Length/N, StopBits/N: so for example: SerialBridge serial.device 0 telser.device 0 512 19200 will bridge between serial.device unit 0 and telser.device unit 0 with a buffer of 512 bytes and a baudrate of 19200bps SerialBridge will default to an 8N1 connection (8 bits / 1 stop bit/ no parity). It also defaults to 7 wire RTS/CTS handshaking. If you have only a 3 wire serial cable you will need to change the serial mode. This isn't particular user friendly in this version 128 SERF_XDISABLED - xOn-xOff feature disabled mask 64 SERF_EOFMODE - EOF mode enabled mask 32 SERF_SHARED - non-exclusive access mask 16 SERF_RAD_BOOGIE - high-speed mode active mask 8 SERF_QUEUEDBRK - queue this Break ioRqst mask 4 SERF_7WIRE - RS232 7-wire protocol mask 2 SERF_PARTY ODD - parity feature enabled mask 1 SERF_PARTY_ON - parity-enabled mask To set the option you want you need to add up the masks. So for example the default option are SERF_7WIRE + SERF_RAD_BOOGIE + SERF_XDISABLED or 148 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If you need any help/support you can email me at buzztotem.fix.no Thanks to Barry McConnel, author of Serial Router for some ideas I got from his source and also big thanks to Sam Yee for the excellent telser.device. You use this program at your own risk. I cannot be held responsible for your computer blowing up etc.
