PCjr Web Server

Postby Brutman » Sun Jan 12, 2020 12:50 pm

In case anybody missed it my PCjr has been running nearly 11 days now serving the mTCP part of the web site. You can visit it and look at it's internal status page, which gives you it's uptime, how many connections it has serviced, etc.

As of this writing it has been up 261 hours and served 8710 pages or objects. More than 600,000 packets have been sent and received by the machine.


Links:

Internal server status page: http://50.125.82.27:8088/proc/Status
mTCP pages being served: http://50.125.82.27:8088/mTCP


I'll let it run for another day or two. I think I've proven a few points. :-)

It's the little machine that could.

On a related note, I did get a 8-bit NE2000 NIC working I layed-out in a Tandy PLUS form-factor thanks to a packet driver modification someone on VCForums made a long time ago. My first PLUS board had some quirky mechanical issues with the back-plate alignment. I've fixed those and reordered 5 boards to test/distribute to folks. I wasn't planning on doing anything more to the project other than documenting it and posting it on my website. The same design would easily map to a side-car connector..... wait I should stop now before I open another decade long can of worms.

I saw your designs when you posted over at VCFed.org. It almost looked easy enough to breadboard.

What was the packet driver modification that was required? (That thread dates back to 2014 - I can't remember the changes that the OP made.)

It was the OP's packet driver. I haven't compared the source he posted to the original yet.
