Hi Mahias,

That's very good news !

I can not use this function, Basilisk is well configured (I add the script in the serial port settings (/tmp/pty.basiliskII) I checked, it is present in my tmp folder .
I have the latest release with the addition of "External Serial Port Driver".

On Basilisk, it seems to work, when I start a connection via NTK, he is waiting for a new Newton.
But then on Einstein I do not see what to change. In the Dock, you have to choose "Serial »?

> Compiling Einstein can be a hassle. This is why I added another pre-release to github which contains the newest ready-to-run Einstein App:

> Just download the package, start it, and it will install Einstein.app in the /Applications folder.
> This version includes a new choice in the Preferences for selecting a serial port emulation. Einstein needs to restart for new settings to take effect.
> Probably the most exciting one is "BasiliskII" serial port emulation. Download BasiliskII in a somewhat recent version for MacOS. Install a Quadra or whatever ROM and the system disk image and the developer disk image from Unna. Set the BasiliskII Modem port to "/tmp/pty.BasiliskII". Launch Basilisk and Einstein. Both emulators should connect, just as if you had a Classic Mac and a MessagePad connected via a serial port cable.
