netboot65 is a project to support network booting Commodore 64 computers. It is based on the IP65 TCP/IP stack. Current components are:
- a server (written in ruby for maximum portability) that provides a TFTP server with some proprietary extensions to allow clients to request a directory listing.
- clients (currently a cartridge or a standalone prg file for C64) that initialises an IP stack, acquires an IP address via DHCP, queries the local LAN for a TFTP server,
and then allows a program file to be downloaded via TFTP and executed. Currently only 'single load' programs are supported, but many old games and utility programs can be run in this way.
- the KIPPER API (currently for C64 only) that allows for IP aware applications to be developed without being tied to a specific MAC address, IP address or network device, as is the case with most existing
IP libraries for 6502 computers.
