The Amiga emulation environment takes advantage of the TCP/IP
functionality offered by the host environment, and makes it
available to Amiga applications via an emulated Amiga
bsdsocket.library. Amiga TCP/IP and dial-up functionality offered
by programs such as Miami and AmiTCP/IP is not necessary, and
should be completely disabled or uninstalled.
TCP/IP support in the emulation requires Winsock 2.0 or higher.
If you have one of the very first versions of Windows 95 you may
need to install the "Windows Socket 2 Update for Windows
95", available at no cost from the download section at the Microsoft
website. In case of doubt, enable the Create log file option
in the WinUAE Properties, and after attempting to use TCP/IP from
inside the emulation check the log file for entries containing the
Some Amiga programs (e.g. StrICQ) come in different versions
compiled for specific Amiga TCP/IP stacks. In case of problems we
recommend trying out all versions, those for Miami and AmiTCP/IP,
if available, first.
Older versions of the Voyager web browser may require that the
cache reside on a native Amiga file system volume, and do not
support file systems such as certain Amiga network file systems or directories mounted in the Amiga emulation. To address
this issue, either move the cache to an Amiga hardfile, or to RAM,
or disable the cache.
Some versions of Windows TCP/IP do not support certain
rarely used TCP/IP socket options which the original Amiga
bsdsocket.library supports. For example, the "traceroute"
command which comes with AmiTCP/IP may fail if Winsock does not
support IP_HDRINCL/raw sockets.
