Setting up a dial-in server with a Raspberry Pi #VintageComputing #Linux #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi @DogeMicrosys

Dial-up internet connections may feel like a relic of the past, but modern telephony equipment makes it cheap & easy to set up your own dial-up ISP!

Forget about pricey interconnects with the phone company: with a few pieces of commodity hardware and an hour of setup, you can emulate a blazing fast 56 kbps network connection between two or more clients.

Despite variations in modem hardware, this guide should work with any dial-up modem that presents itself as a serial device to the operating system, whether it connects over USB, ISA, PCI, or RS-232.

Dial-up over VoIP can be unreliable so it is best to keep speeds low. If you don’t already have a modem I would recommend looking for a 14.4k modem for the sake of reliability.

The guide goes into detail on setup for Raspberry Pi OS.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
