How would you then know which port to communicate AppleTalk through?
AppleTalk cannot even look at a multi serial port board.
In ye olde days, third party manufacturers made boards with multiple serial ports in order to connect Mac IIs running A/UX to serial terminals. It would be interesting for someone running A/UX 1.x to test your card.
Well true. I was hoping there was some way I could use it like one of the LocalTalk star switches where every segment of the network could have the full throughput of the port.
I realize that I really asked the wrong question. Instead of using the connections for LocalTalk boxes I was hoping it would be possible to actually network Macs together using Serial->Serial connections. Instead of a peer-to-peer bus network (typical PhoneNet) they would all go through a central workgroup server. It would handle the 'routing.'
