If you are referring to just running a NitrOS9 terminal window on the PC with the Coco as the server using DW4, then yes, it's still there.
First you need the "/Zx" desriptors along with the "scdwv.dr" (as well as normal dw boot stuff)
Boot NitrOS9 with DW4 access. Type "shell /Zx&". x being the Z window number (Z1-Z8). And yes, include the ampersand.
At this point, an 80x24 text window should appear on your PC in which you have access to the Coco & NitrOS9. You can run programs and such, but no graphics.

I seem to remember popping a Nitros9 Window onto the drivewire server it was very neat. There is a Youtube video  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C-QvdX2bNQ  I cannot find the disk I had made that did than so I was trying to  do it again from the youtube video.  It does not work and I get a error 221 - Module not found.  I do have n5  Is Nine server still supported by drive wire, I herd a rummer that  that It was going to be a separate program.  I can use either Nitros9 3.02.9 or 3.03 - 2014 or 3.03 Daily Build  none of these have worked.  What modules do I need and what should be in my /dd/sys/inetd  to make this work or is it no longer  supported by drive wire?  If it is being developed as a separate program now who is the developer ?  Thanks.-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
