SMSQ/E, ATARI Emulators

A file SERNET_rext is provided with SMSQ/E, QXL and the Emulators for the Atari computers which allows you to set up a Network using the Serial ports provided. Once the Network has been set up with the necessary leads, and SERNET_rext been loaded on all computers in the Network, the command SERNET should be issued to start up the fileserver Job on each computer. This creates a background Job called ‘SERNET’ which is similar to the ‘Server’ Job created by FSERVE.

The two fileservers are very similar in operation in that they both allow other computers to access the resources of the Master machine over the Network. As with MIDINET, SERNET has built-in protection for files which can prevent other users in a Network accessing sensitive files. Refer to MIDINET for details.


SNET is needed to control the Network. See also FSERVE and MIDINET. See the Appendix on Networks for further details.
