    Apple Internet Router 3.01

    No need to know anything about Linux As quote from my web site: You need three things to run the gateway: – Virtualisation software, like Virtualbox (https://www.virtualbox.org/) – The virtual machine with macipgw on it . Download below. – A LocalTalk bridge. Can be hardware or software. if you need help. Just let me know. This is why I make these tools.

    Download the MacIPgw VM at www.macip.net and you are also in business. Or the MacIPpi for 24/7 MacIP support.

    Absolute fantastic what you are doing! Love to test your Mini vMac. I’m into this network LocalTalk thing for many years now. I made my own solution for this challenge. The MacIPpi and MacIPgw VM. (see https://www.macip.net ) But your approach is tempting and promising.

    Exercise the disk with BLU:
  8. I'm always very happy to know people are using this solution! Thanks for letting me know! Correct. No software. You should do it on your own. http://macintoshgarden.org/ is a good starting point. I added it on the site! Thanks for telling me. I changed it on the site:

    Apple Profile hard drive

    I connected it to my internal paralel cable to an 'in between cable' , a DB25 male male Lisa paralel cable and tested. Works fine! I could install a fresh system on it with the help of my FlopyEmu. 5MB back to live!

    What ever happend to this Lisa? It is repaired? Would love to have an update.

    How interesting is the Lisa?

    I’m also a big Lisa fan. I restored one which ones was used at our national broadcast station (NOS). When I got it, it was case and video board only. I acquired the internals of a Lisa 2/10 Then I got a second love….the widget drive. I have two. Not working, but still have hope. Lisa is for me like the start of GUI and serious use of HD. I really love to see how many parts where necessary to get the machine going. In the Netherlands they are also extremely rare. And .. I also own a MISA or Lacintosh.. https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/25212-is-it-a-lisa-is-it-a-macintosh/

    Apple Profile hard drive

    Some more pictures. Before shipping. To complete the information about this disk. The disk runs at 110V. I have an inverter.
  13. Profile disk I recently acquired a Apple Profile drive. It’s case did got damaged in transit but it was repairable. On YouTube there are some video’s how the disk starts up, so I knew where to look for. I thought it would be nice to film the first and second startup up and have a close up at the stepping motor. I post some pictures and the movies here. If I have news about the actual condition ( will it work....) I will post it also here. Some pictures:

    Bought myself a Widget drive....

    I found this in the Lisa 2 owners guide: http://www.bitsavers.org/pdf/apple/lisa/owners_manual/Lisa_2_Owners_Guide_1984.pdf Error 85: Disk timeou. In other postings I did see this: So maybe the motor controling board. Sometimes BLU start disk sees the disk. And I see this: It gives a lot of bad blocks.....

    Bought myself a Widget drive....

    It arrived! Thanks to Shipito. Makes it less expensive to send stuff to Europe. It tested it right away: It spins and NeoWidget sees it as a Widget! That is a good start. But..it is giving a 10726 error or a 85 error. What is strange is that my "sort of working disk" gives the same errors! Could it be my self costumised power supply? Some more:
