David Schmenk Releases TFTP Server for the Apple II

David Schmenk has released a new Trival File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server for the Apple II.  The release is part of his PLASMA Programming Language for the Apple II release.  To use the TFTP Server, boot the PLASMA System Floppy which you can download from the PLASMA Archive.

Simply boot the floppy in your Apple II with Uthernet I or Uthernet II card installed. Once booted, you should see the PLASMA startup message. To run the TFTP server, type:

+tftpd

The disk will spin as the modules are loaded and the network card should be auto-detected. The IP address will be fetched from a DHCP server and the Apple II will be ready to transfer files. The Apple II will display its IP address which you will need later with the TFTP client.

The PLASMA Programming Language disks are available from:
