Marinetti is the only TCP/IP stack available for the Apple IIGS, clean room developed from the RFCs, and written completely in 65c816 assembly language.

|NOTE: Binscii is not supported by any of the major online services as a standard Apple II encapsulation method, and is therefore not provided for on this site. It has however been used for email and Usenet postings, but that's beside the point. The Apple II FAQs which are currently being posted to comp.sys.apple2 are incorrect, and should be ignored.|
Distribution of Marinetti, the Marinetti Developers' Kit and the Marinetti Programmers' Guide are strictly controlled, and aside from this Web site, are only available from the following locations. Each of these may or may not have the latest releases.
|16 Sector.com||Marinetti ships on all Focus drives sold, and is installed on the Focus Distribution Disk.|
|Syndicomm||Syndicomm is the only place you can get all the development tools you need to help put
Marinetti support into your own programs. Via a special arrangement, Syndicomm has made available a package which includes Marinetti itself,
a hard copy version of the programmers' guide, plus header files and includes for ORCA/C, ORCA/Pascal, ORCA/M, Merlin and GSBasic.
|a2RetroSystems||a2RetroSystems provide a disk image that contains the Marinetti 3.0b1 installer, latest version of the TCPIP Init and the Uthernet link layers.
|Speccie's Internet Starter Kits||Ewen 'Speccie' Wannop has put together some disk images that have the latest version of Marinetti and emulator link layers installed for use with popular emulators such as Sweet16 and GSport.

The following links have not been checked for technical accuracy, and as such may or may not be correct.
Dan Krass' "Marinetti/SLiRP HOWTO" document, describing how to use SLiRP with Marinetti.
If you are using, or are considering using, Marinetti from your own programs, you will need the Marinetti Programmers' Guide, which is available as an Adobe Acrobat .PDF (MarProgGuide.pdf). *Revised 20th May 2001. However, a full hard copy version, along with a disk containing useful development tools, is also available from Syndicomm. See above.
For help of a more human nature, there is a developer support mailing list for discussion of Marinetti development issues, such as bug workarounds, compatability, coding assistance etc.
TCP/IP is a very new concept for many Apple IIGS programmers, and this list should help make up for possibly being "thrown in at the deep end."
Additionally, this list is the only place where you can get OFFICIAL Marinetti developer support.
