The "Uthernet" card is the most likely target for networking Apple IIs - AppleWin's had support for it for a while, and there's decent-ish software support.
Tha sounds quite interesting, a cpu core for the cs8900a would also allow implementation of internet on the c64 and atari 8bit
(The Workstation Card has it's own on-board CPU and there are no dumps of the ROMs, which among a lot of other things makes it a non-starter).
That is a bit sad, I supposed that since there was an open source appletalk project
there would be some kind of community interest, but "lot of other things" sounds like there is a roadblock somewhere
 Only available on Linux builds right now, MESS must be built with USE_NETWORK=1, and you have to run src/osd/sdl/taputil.sh as root beforehand to configure the network.
I use ubuntu to browse the web, but run emulators on the "game pc" with windows installed, I hope someone gets interested on adding the feature to the windows port.
Thanks for your reply
