Hello, for VCS pkgbuild like this -svn need to be a suffix, you should re-upload as dosbox-ne2000-svn

You have to change your .dosbox/dosbox-SVN.conf file to include the network card you want to access from within dosbox:

E.g. here is mine:

ne2000  = true
nicbase = 300
nicirq  = 3
macaddr = AC:DE:48:88:99:AA
realnic = enp

This uses my host's ethernet interface enp0s31f6 from within dosbox (realnic = enp matches the interface(s) whose name start with enp). Note you have to be able to capture from that device, see:

I repeat the instructions here for convenience but USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK

First add a capture group and add your user (do not forget to relog)

sudo groupadd pcap
sudo usermod -a -G pcap $USER

Next, change the group of dosbox and set permissions:

sudo chgrp pcap /usr/bin/dosbox
sudo chmod 750 /usr/bin/dosbox


sudo setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip /usr/bin/dosbox

Again, warning users of the group pcap (and dosbox) now has access to manipulate network interfaces and capture raw packets!
