Apple IIc--can I use a modem to go on line and fetch software?
I've been playing around a bit with Apple II emulators, but would really like to get myself an Apple IIc.
I have an old serial modem. I've seen that one can get an Apple IIc serial printer cable for null modem transfers.
I'm interested in whether such a cable would connect to the IIc and allow me to go on line and, say, ftp various dsk files that are out there.
My main computer is an iBook G4 which cannot use 800K floppies.
I have an old Powerbook 170 which I'd like to unload, but right now the only way I can see doing this transfer is iBook to Zip disk, then from Zip disk to PB 170, then in the PB 170 to an 800K disk and then... oh, wait! That would only work with an IIc+, right, the one with the 800K 3.5" disk. Hmm...
So, I'm back with my question about whether I'll be able to download software directly from the net to the IIc.
Any and all thoughts, reactions, suggestions welcomed!
