The Internet Adapter

The Internet Adapter

The Internet Adapter (TIA) was software created by Cyberspace Development in 1993 to allow SLIP connections over a shell account. PPP was added in 1995. Shell accounts normally only allow the use of command line or text-based software, but by logging in to a shell account and starting the TIA daemon, a user could then run standard GUI software such as Netscape Navigator on their computer. TIA was ported to a large number of unix or unix-like systems.

Usage of TIA declined rapidly with the advent of inexpensive PPP-enabled consumer-level dial-up access. Also, competition from alternatives such as SLiRP cut its market share. Cyberspace Development later sold its domain name and its owners went on to other projects.
