Setup AmiFox with AmiFoxServer in Docker on a Synology 1821+ NAS with DSM 7.1.1.

UPDATE: Also works on DSM 7.2

I want to show you the power of the retro community.

I like my Amiga 4000 a lot. This old lady gets a lot of love from the retro community, like many Commodore machines do.

In 2023 Hyperion announced Amiga OS 3.2.2. Kickstart and workbench as a free update for 3.2. I didn’t swapped the KickStart ROMs from 3.2 to 3.2.1 but now I decided to change it from 3.2 to 3.2.2. The shortage of chips was not helping but Dennis from offered a swap service using old EPROMs. The site is in Dutch but they can help in English and ship worldwide.

I have an A2065 network card with Roadshow TCP/IP to access network and internet. You can also use another TCP/IP stack but I bought this one.

Let’s start with installing AmiFoxServer via Docker on a Synology NAS with DSM 7.1.1. Good news is that DSM 7.2 with support easier methods like YML files is coming to xx21+ and newer soon.
