Apple IIe ADTpro client issues

I was able to successfully bootstrap Speediboot, and made a ADTpro boot floppy for my Apple IIe. I used the disk image ADTPRO-2.0.3.DSK from the ADTpro/Disks folder for the boot floppy. I booted my Apple IIe ADTpro client, pressed R to receive a desired file, and it gives me a HOST TIMEOUT. I tried several times, and verified the the PC client shows a connection. It errors out each time.

 

So in the interim, I redid the bootstrap with Speediboot which automatically boots the Apple client after loading. From there, I pressed R to receive, <enter> to view the files on my PC, and selected a file to transfer. It's transferring right now.

 

Did I miss a step when creating the boot floppy? Did I copy the wrong .DSK image to the floppy?

That is a serial settings

That is a serial settings issue. 

 

One of tyhe following is likely true:

 

You re using the wrong serial cable pinout.

Your Super Serial Card DIP switch settings are wrong.

Your baud rate is too fast.

Whatever you are using to connect it, if over USB, is eiither misconfigured or unsupported.

Yep. Baud rate on the Apple IIe client

It was the baud rate on the Apple IIe client. I went into config and changed it to match the setting in the ADTpro client on my PC.

 

Thank you!

New ADTpro issue - CP/M disk images

Good thing I'm retired!

 

I'm trying to copy Apple IIe CP/M disk images from my PC to my Apple IIe via ADTpro. The file transfers, but I get "X"s when it tries to write to the floppy. I've tried several different CP/M disk images, and several different floppy disk, and even tried disk drive #2. No success.

 

Anyone got any ideas?

 

Sorry to be so full of questions today.

Haven't worked with Apple II

Haven't worked with Apple II CP/M (don't have a CP/M card) so probably won't be of much help here...

Are you using known good DSDD floppies? (Well, they could be SSDD, but those are even harder to find.  Just are you not using HD floppies..)

Other than that, I am not sure why it might not work.  Sorry.  ;-(  ;-)

Nevermind!

I thought that ADTpro did a low-level format during a transfer. It doesn't. I formatted the disks, and not it works.  Sorry to bother y'all.

 

So glad I'm leaving for vacation Saturday!

Boot to hear that it was the baud setting. ADTP likes to xfer at super-fast baud, and the SSC may not be able to handshake and accept the data, while the //gs, and ater model ./c systems, can. Now that you have CP/M working:

 

https://ftp.apple.asimov.net/images/cpm/games/

 

Grab the .zip files. I uploaded all of these but the .dsk cut off mid transfer, so that image is bad. The other three work. Thiese are Zork 1, 2 and 3 for the Apple II runniing CP/M in 80 columns. If there is any reason to run CP/M on a ][, these are it. 

 

P.S. Don't forget to notch and format side B to save games!

I have early ROM0 //c that was never fixed (still has the TTL instead of the oscilator).  It has no problems with ADTPro at 115200 baud.  I've been able to even get it to communicate with my WiModem232 at 19200, but not connect to anything.  The fastest I have been able to actually get it to connect is 4800 baud.  I may need to tweak the init string to see if I can do 9600 or 19200 with an actual connection, and not just communicating with the WiModem.
