My next task is getting a web browser on there, tunneling incoming and outgoing connections, etc. This is where I'm running into some issues.
Is there a FAQ or a guide out there? My eventual goal is to have a standalone telnet bbs running on there just for fun, accepting
connections at some odd port that I can just mess with. Anyway, I appreciate any and all help...
The first step. Have you got 'bsd socket' emulation compiled into the euae binary?
Out going connections, ala webbrowser will then just work. The hard part is getting inbound going.
With euae using the builtin networking support of the Linux host, you dont use/need native amiga tcp/ip software. To get telnetd or telserd going for inbound you have to:
1. Make the euae binary setuid root (if binding to the default telnet port)
on the linux side.
2. Start/setup inetd to run on the amiga side, with either one of the telnet deamon's and then have them pass the connection onto the amiga software you using.
