net-misc / ethflop

A network-backed floppy emulator for DOS

Official package sites : http://ethflop.sourceforge.net/ ·

ethflop is a DOS TSR that emulates a floppy disk drive. The emulated (virtual) floppy disk is, in fact, stored on a Linux server as a floppy image. All the communication between ethflop (the TSR) and ethflopd (the Linux daemon) is exchanged over raw Ethernet. No need for any network configuration - the DOS PC only needs to have some kind of Ethernet adapter (physical or emulated, for example through PLIP) and a suitable packet driver. The Linux server and the DOS PC must be connected to a common Ethernet segment (same LAN).
