And it is quite frustrating. Â The most I can do is about 100MB worth of AppleTalk traffic, or 1.5GB of TCP/IP then theÂ receive function EtherReadPacketÂ just stop being called, and then the whole thing stalls out.
I don’t really ‘like’ my solution, but it does work. Â I went ahead and chained theÂ EtherInterrupt function to the 60Hz timer to ensure it’ll fire, and it seems to be working. The good thing is now I’m getting ~200K/sec using pcap or SLiRP. Â So things are faster!
Then after scanning the changelog, I found this interrupt patch, and it doubled my throughput on the network to over 400K/sec!
So now I can copy aboutÂ 350MB worth of data in about 5-7 minutes, and it doesn’t stall out.
I can now copy hundreds of MB worth of stuff from one AT server to another.
What is also surprising is that by using Internet Explorer 4.0.1 for MacOS, I get speeds of around 1.0Mb/sec(with as high as 1.6!)
I know IE has always had a bum rap, but it really is a better legacy browser on MacOS.
I also merged the scsi driver’s buffer with BasiliskII’s buffer so the scatter/gather can now handle the absurd requests of 4MB++ worth of reads in one swoop.
IE on Mac is a different (and far better) browser with standards support
I loved ie 5 on osx, and it was a shame ms dropped it. Worse when Rosetta was ended killing it off forever.
It’s kind of funny that ie was my favorite browser of the era, just not on windows.
I want to do my blog in some fashion that’ll render in ie 4. The sql tables of WordPress aren’t that complicated.
rendering the RSS feed is your safest bet
I guess there is that too. But we’re talking 4 tables… It’s crazy simple. It makes me wonder why it’s so labour intensive for the server.
Hi, do you think the Basilisk team will ever fix networking on 64-bit Windows 7 and 10?
I’m not sure… there is all kinds of size/alignment issues with the code. It’d probably be easier to rewrite…
Use Cockatrice III wtih WinPcap. Its networking is somewhat faster, works on 64-bit Windows 7, and doesn’t crash every 10 seconds. The Basilisk network driver is a an outdated mess and really really slow particularly with DDP AppleTalk. We’re talking 5 minutes to transfer a 3MB file! A real Mac connected via LocalTalk (230kbps) is faster!
Regarding Windows 10. I haven’t had much success getting emulated networking working with the more modern NPCAP in “WinPCap Compatible Mode”
I’ve been thinking of the tun/ tap stuff and software bridges but I fear it may be too high of a bar for normal users.
There must be some better way to do nic injection, although I don’t think Microsoft really is all that open with their hyperv for 3rd party stuff
