The 320CDS is rather old, from that age when RS232 ruled
all; there is a serial port on it, isn't there?

If yes, your best path is using slip to set up networking to
another (Unix) PC. In a nutshell, get a serial cable between
the 2 PCs, then go:

on the laptop:
slattach -L -s 115200 /dev/ttyS0 
ifconfig sl0 pointopoint

on the PC:
slattach -L -s 115200 /dev/ttyS0
ifconfig sl0 pointopoint

At that stage, ping should work, and so should hopefully

Good luck,
