Let's browse the Web with an old but magnificient IBM Model 5155 Portable Computer (1984) : Intel 8088 @4,77 MHz - 640 KB of RAM - 20 MB RLL Hard Drive (Seagate ST238R) - Built-in 9'' amber CGA display. This transportable computer weights no more than 13,6 kg. Software : Antonio Lopez Molero's PPPD for DOS Packet Driver + MSDOS 6.22 + Bobcat (Lynx port to DOS) web brower. I used an HP Laptop running OpenBSD 4.4 as a PPP gateway, allowing the IBM 5155 to connect to Internet via a RS232 cable. The laptop is connected to a DSL Router via a wireless NIC. This video is a basic illustration of the method described in a PDF document I wrote some times ago, explaining how to connect old computers to Internet via RS232 serial cable and DSL Routers, using PPP and SLIP protocols and an OpenBSD PPP/SLIP gateway. At this time, this How-to is only available in french : http://retrocomputing.free.fr/dotclea...

Greetings to the fr.comp.ordinosaures newsgroup community.

My big thanks goes to Johan Sanchez for providing me this beautiful computer.
