Hi

I'm pretty sure you can't (at least as things stand)

AFAIK, CP/M had no internet support, while third party software might have been written you don't stand a cat in hells chance of interfacing a NIC to the mini without considerable work...

That said, something like SLIP might be possible with a second serial port and you could of course use a terminal application to connect via serial to a modem or other machine and do your (text based) net stuff from there...
