There are many references on Google to versions of AtariLink that seemed to be out in the wild.  I don't know for sure if it was free or commercial, or if this 2.0 prototype version ever made it to a release.

 

I did stumble across this podcast interview with Pab that I have to listen to now!  Maybe it will answer some questions...  http://ataripodcast....genis-developer

 

 

there was a 2.0 release :)

When it gets to the point "Waiting for call...", how do you simulate an incoming call?

It's one of the 'extra' keys (Start/Select/Option)... Forgot which one.

Don't use the disk; surely it has a virus!!

Very nice!  I would guess these must be the released version.  Would be an interesting project for someone with more time than I have to do some comparisons of code between the prototype and the release.

I've been listening to the ANTIC Podcast with Pab, it's definitely worth a listen!   http://ataripodcast....genis-developer

 

He remembers a lot of really good details if you were familiar with the Atari modems of the day (1030, XMM301, SX212, etc.).

I emailed Pab through his web site and received confirmation that those disk labels are indeed his handwriting!
