  1. What a haul! Congratulations! About the Lisa. Don’t give up on the hard disk yet! These widget drives are very rare if they work at all. So the fact that it booted ones could be a good sign that it is still working. Maybe it needs some help spinning up. If you have had a crash also disk error can be given, but it is still working. Have a look at the Lisa part of this forum or at lisalist2.com for more information about widget drives.
  2. For now you can login with ssh and use raspi-config to enlarge your disk. I will make a beta 2 soon where this is done at boot.
  3. I think I had the same problem. I resolved it a few years ago. Don’t know exactly how, but I have a large amount of files on my FloppyEmu SD card which work OK. Maybe we could exchange files? So I test yours and you test mine. If you want that please send me a PM. If we find out what’s does the trick we post it here.

  5. I would love to see a modern replacement been made for a LocalTalk bridge. I think it is not so simple. A few years ago a working prototype is build on a BBB. I have tested it also and it is working fine. Read about it here: https://mac68k.info/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=275&start=0&tstart=0 A device which could combine a MacIPpi and LocalTalk bridge would also be nice. But to develop something like that is out of reach for me.
  6. @Realitystorm Nice! I will have a closer look! Did you test the MacIP.net Raspberry Pi solution? You can have this 24x7 in your network. Filesharing and alternative “FastPath” in one!
  7. Thanks for mentioning the MacIP.net solutions. Have a look at https://www.macip.net Newest is a Raspberry Pi solution. It is equipped with very form of filesharing. Windows, MacOSX, old school Mac, etc. Bonus is that can access Internet over LocalTalk. The VM solution is most simple but the Rpi is great having around 24x7.
  8. Ok. I will be working on my beta. So take your time. If you want to use your Macintosh with TCP/IP do it like this:
  9. Thanks for this test report! I continue to post and give some answers in the article about the new Rpi 5.0.1
  10. I got the results of two beta testers: One tester confirmed that the image is also working for the P4 This is the second test result. Nice to read all along. - For beta rc 02 I will add macipgw to sudoers. Work around is to login as root. Expanding your SD card to the max with first boot will be standard in bet rc 02 - Show up of shared disk in all kind off protocols is a feature. I think it is noce you can always access this disk to "feed" your old macs. - Printing will be not on this one, because of the setup per printer. Difficult to g
  11. Yes! That is how you can use it. the MacIPpi has a shared disk. You can access it as guest. Upload and download without any hassle.
  12. The fun of running a MacIPpi is that you do have an "out of the box" MacIP gateway in your network. And feel how people end eighties / begin nineties could access the Internet with a machine line Plus or SE. No network card...only LocalTalk. Bonus nowadays is that you have instant file sharing for every platform, including Windows, Mac, MacOS X. I also added the Web Rendering Proxy (port 8080) so you can surf modern web sites with f.i Netscape 3.0. So..you have to have the retro feeling about the Internet to Telnet from your Plus to Telehack.com and watch Star Wars in ascii. (But I must s
  13. There is a software solution too. If you have a Macintosh with network and LocalTalk. https://www.macintoshrepository.org/1481-localtalk-bridge-2-1
