Exploring connectivity options with MUG – 21st September

If you want to gain a better understanding of the different ways to get RISC OS computers connected – be that to the world beyond your own four walls, or to other systems within them – then a visit to the next Midland User Group meeting might not be a bad idea.

There will be a demonstration of Wispy/WispyCE and a TP Link ethernet to WiFi device – both of which bridge the gap between an ethernet port and a wireless network connection (in the case of Wispy via another small computer running Linux). The discussion will cover other options, such as R-Comp’s PiFi3, which operates in a similar manner to Wispy, as well as programs like LanMan98, LanManFS, SunFish, MoonFish, Samba, and so on – all of which allow access to storage locations on other computers and devices.

The meeting takes place at 2:00pm on Saturday, 21st September, at:

Wychbold Village Hall,
School Road,
Wychbold,
WR9 7PU.

The venue is a very short hop from junction 5 of the M5 motorway, and Wychbold is well serviced by public transport, with the 144 and 145 bus services stopping in the village – and Droitwich Spa and Bromsgrove railway stations are only a bus trip away.

Please note that for non-members there is a small entrance fee to contribute towards the cost of hiring the hall.
