matthew180 Posted December 8, 2010 Share Posted December 8, 2010 Parallel ports are not designed to be connected together. That's why network cards were invented. Trying to work out the electrical details would be difficult, and in the end a one-off custom circuit. Parallel cables are also very limited in length. All true, however it is possible to work out. I'm not too worried about about generalization of the design because I frankly don't see a lot of people throwing a "LAN" party at someone's house too often with TI's You under estimate me! I would have a mandatory TI LAN party with some local friends. LAN ToD!! That's probably a great way to go but will likely require some pretty technical programming on modern machines which I am not up to. I think I have a hard enough time understanding the ins and outs of the PIO port as it is You could use a TI as the "server". The serial to [uSB / Ethernet] works just like the serial port on the 99/4A side of things. Also, I'd be willing to kick in some Unix based server assistance if you wanted. Heck, with a serial to Ethernet adapter, the games could be Internet based! Matthew Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
