The Master 10/100 Net ethernet module allows a BBC Master to communicate with an Ethernet network, sharing folders and peripherals with other computers. The board comes with the following features:
The network software supports ARP, DHCP, TCP/IP, UDP, DNS, NETBIOS, SMB AND ICMP.
I have installed the Master 10/100 Net ethernet module in an upgraded Master 128 and found that it works very well. It was easy to install and configure. When connected to my home LAN, it used DHCP to request and receive an IP address, Net mask, Gateway and DNS address. It used both a local hosts file and DNS to resolve network addresses and I could ping other computers on the LAN. It connected to a PC running Windows 2000 server in a workgroup and I was able to access files from the PC on the Master. I could also connect to a Risc PC and access a shared directory via SMBServer! I intend to use it to transfer BBC discs to my PC and then to Chris's Acorns.
