    That information is probably not lost to time. It's probably just a matter of opening the printer and having a look at the circuit board and other parts.

    Also, IBM made cash registers at the...

    That's a neat little printer; the print wheel arrangement is new to me. (I'm familiar with the IBM Selectric "golfball" and daisy wheel letter quality printers.)

    And yes, that was painful to...
  5. IBM Compact Printer video (Watch it Print!)

    About 10 years ago I played around with an IBM Compact Printer, including doing some programming to exercise the graphics mode. Two house moves later the printer was nowhere in site and I had an...

    Neat project - it reminds me that I should get to work on my next idea, a proxy that just strips SSL. That way older machines can continue to use HTTP even though only HTTPS might be available. I'm...

    We've been asked not to post videos of the warehouse here. We can't stop other people from doing it, nor do we know if they have been blessed to do so. If you want to see the video I suggest just...

    Hi - mTCP author here.

    Can you email me both versions of the packet driver?

    It irritates me when people lose interest, but that is also a way to weed out people who are not serious. I understand that $100 or $150 is a bit of coin for a lot of people, but consider that the...

    Everybody loves the jrIDE. Raise the price - seriously, it is easy to defend an increase.

    I mentioned this in IRC during the discussion there and will throw it out here as more food for thought.

    Part of the problem is the quality of the derivative products. If we want people to know...

    Ah, the Sears SR2000. I spent fifteen years looking for the manual and finally obtained it in the past year.

    It will do parallel or serial via option boards; look on the back of the printer to...

    To me the 3C503.COM file message indicates that it did not load, so there is no point in trying to do anything else. Is that file actually a packet driver, and does it need something else loaded in...

    +1 to what Erik said - you should be using the 3C503 packet driver, which is a terminate-and-stay-resident program, not a device driver that loads via CONFIG.SYS.

    Also, when you say you tried the...

    Add another parallel port to that; we know how to modify those for LPT2. And both of those would be bi-directional.

    Please don't post videos of Computer Reset here. The owners would like to keep them somewhat private for now.

    IRQ conflict is unlikely - he is receiving packets. I am wondering what state those packets are in though - a failing IP checksum would kill DHCP, Ping, etc. even though packets came in. (I advised...

    I answered offline but feel free to chip in if you have an idea of what might be wrong. I've asked the OP to run pkttool to see what kind of packets are coming in, take a trace to see if the IP...

    Just a small nit - mTCP does not care about 0x60 in particular. It just wants you to specify one of the software interrupt vectors. Anything from 0x60 to 0x7F is fair game and usable. 0x60 is just...
