I bought a Raspberry 3 mod. B to connect it with my Apple IIe (enhanced).
I made the installation as discriped on Ivan's Website ( http://appleii.ivanx.com/prnumber6/category/a2cloud/ ).
I installed the latest Raspbian System on the SD Card and booted the Raspberry - everything worked well.
Then I installed Raspple II with the order "wget ivanx.com/a2cloud/setup; source setup" - that worked well without errors. (I also tried to install Raspple II directly on a SD card - but then the System does not boot up ... ?)
I tried 3 different usb/serial adapter ((chipset: FTDI; TRENDnet TU-S9 USB to Serial Converter (the adapter Ivan suggests on his A2Cloud Website) and a third one - I don't know the chipset)) - with all of them I do have the same results.
I tried 3 different SSC - I tried jumper on modem and terminal - switches as disriped for the ADTPRO setting (SW1: 1001111 SW2: 1101100), switches as discriped in the ProTerm manual on page 281 (SW1: 0111111 SW2: 1111110) and switches as discriped in different version in the Super Serial Card operating manual on page 21 ff..
THE PROBLEM: I get no terminal communication between the Apple IIe and the Raspberry (tried ProTerm and Kermit)and no correct vsdrive work:
If I start on the Raspberry PI ADTPRO with the order "adtpro.sh serial" and start then on the Apple IIe the "A2CLOUD.DSK" BootFloppy"; then press "V" and then type "Cat,S2,D2" I get the catalog from vsdrive - I can also start some programms from there (Proterm and Zlink not; sysutil, filer and AdtPro work)
If I "just connect" the Apple IIe (tried slot 1 and 2) and the Raspberry PI (lower usb port near to ethernet port) and start on the Apple IIe the "A2CLOUD.DSK" Floppy without starting ADTPRO on the Raspberry PI - the Apple IIe says after typing "Cat,S2,D2" : I/O Error ...
Trying Bootstrapping is this result:
chaos on the Apple IIe monitor:
Trying to connect ProTerm (start of ProTerm from the Apple IIe from my CFFA (slot 7); SSC in slot 2 a.s.o.; using the upper usb port near to the ethernet on the Raspberry PI) - no result - just a blinking ProTerm cursor.
What can I do?
Could it be that the A2CLOUD software for the Raspberry PI is not compatible with the Raspberry PI 3 Mod. B that I do have?
Thanks in advance for any help!
