Apple II client/server for Raspberry Pi
---------------------------------------
Apple II Pi works by connecting an Apple II to a Raspberry Pi using a RS232 serial connection. In order to get the Raspberry Pi to talk RS232 from it's 3.3V GPIO serial port, you will need to build or buy a converter. They are very cheap on eBay, so I would recommend going that route. Alternatively, you can use a USB serial port converter, but you will need to know its tty device name. To ensure you've hooked the converter up correctly, try loggin into the Raspberry Pi from another modern-ish computer. Raspbian, the default Debian based Linux for the Raspberry Pi, opens up a login (getty) session on the serial port at 115.2K baud. You will probably need a null modem or cross-over cable to login from another computer. Once it all checks out, time to connect your Apple II. All the 3.3V converters and USB serial ports I see have a DB-9 connector and many of the Apple II era connectors are DB-25 so you may need a DB-9 to DB-25 converter.

Installing and configuring the Apple II: You will need an Apple //c or Apple ][, //e, IIgs w/ SuperSerial Card. An Apple ][ requires the SHIFT key mod. An Apple II Mouse is recommended for that full-on retro feel, but not required. Download and install the A2PI.PO disk image onto a 5 1/4 floppy. ADTPro would be the recommended tool for that operation although once you have the latest apple2pi version running, you can use the included dskwrite and dskread utilities for writing and reading ProDOS floppies.
