Amiga Networking FAQ



Answers to both generic and Amiga specific networking questions. It covers both hardware and software questions. It should be read by anyone that has a network related question before posting it to comp.sys.amiga.datacomm or comp.sys.amiga.hardware news groups.

This FAQ about Amiga Networking was compiled and written by Richard Norman with numerous contributions by others.

The primary purpose of a FAQ is to preserve network bandwidth by answering Frequently Asked Questions. A FAQ's second purpose is to provide an altruistic public service to users and vendors.

The Amiga Guide version of this FAQ is available on Aminet in the /pub/aminet/docs/help directory.
