Hatari implements serial and parallel interfaces, so there's always
Plip and Splip if one is lacking ethernet... And one can then route
those to internet. :-)

for Glibc on m68k (somebody was paid to implement it for ColdFire and that
could be relatively easily be applied also for m68k), as newer Glibc
versions in Debian required working thread local storage.

Plip or Slip is enough for getting plain text mail, and having remote
console but not much else... :-)
