There's some new MSX material available from Konamiman, this time on the networking side of the business:

  • A new version of InterNestor Lite. Version 2.2 can act as a SOCKS 5 client.
  • A document explaining how to configure a Raspberry Pi to provide Internet access via WiFi for Ethernet-only devices, which of course includes our ObsoNet or DenyoNet powered MSXes.
  • The same document also explains how to use the new version of InterNestor in combination with an appropriately modified version of stunnel to get indirect support for TLS connections, thus allowing to e.g. to download web resources using HTTPS.
  • As a bonus, there are new versions of the HGET, TFTP and SNTP tools, contributed by MRC user ducasp. The new HGET is especially interesting, since it allows to donwload resources using HTTPS - and this of course works nicely with the new InterNestor + stunnel combo.
