    How to download files on a Mac OS 9 computer?

    I use a netatalk file server to transfer files from my modern Mac to my vintage Macs, but I'm not sure how that would work with a modern PC. You could possibly use DAVE on your vintage Mac to get on your PC's shared folder to transfer files.

    Struggling to connect ethernet on my iisi

    I just popped the case off of my transceiver to fit it into my AUI port of my Ethernet card. It's a little precarious but it works...

    Struggling to connect ethernet on my iisi

    Sometimes old Ethernet cards won't communicate with newer routers. If your Ethernet card has an AUI port, get a Cisco 2500 Series AUI Transceiver (or something similar) and hook it into your network that way. I've had to do that with several of my Ethernet cards and then they work fine.

    What machine would you use for a 24/7 home file server?

    It's been a while since I set up my PiSCSI, but I believe that the papd printer server gets installed when you install netatalk through easyinstall.sh. So it has nothing to do with the SCSI printer feature. Then it's just a matter of using the generic LaserWriter 8 driver in Chooser to select...

    What machine would you use for a 24/7 home file server?

    Save your 68k Mac and use a Raspberry Pi running netatalk! If you set it up using a PiSCSI, you'll also get SCSI device emulation and the ability to print to modern printers over AppleTalk. Highly recommended! I share files from my modern Macs to my vintage Macs, IIgs w/Uthernet II card, and...

    Yes, it's static.

    Hermes BBS install

    Ok, this should totally be doable in SheepShaver with a WiModem232. I was able to hook up a wifi modem to my MacBook Pro using a USB to RS-232 Adapter and connect to my BBS via ZTerm. I physically attached the adapter, listed all the files in my /dev/ directory, found my adapter...

    Hermes BBS install

    With my setup, trying to download a file under v3.1.1 causes the whole BBS to crash shortly after the transfer starts. Uploads cause it to crash as well. I wonder if this is another punishment for running a bad serial number? @icbrkr - have you noticed this behavior with downloading /...

    Hermes BBS install

    From what I've read, different versions of Hermes require different headers in the externals, so that would explain compatibility issues among the different Hermes II versions. Agreed. I haven't tried running v3.1.1 in Basilisk II, but it looks like it may be possible with a USB to serial...

    And this must be the reset issue due to bad serial number that you were describing:

    I was only able to get two more door games to work under v3.1.1 out of that bunch - Leech and The World Sucks. What other games were you able to get working?

    Thank you!! Were you able to get any other games to work under v3.1.1 or v3.5 that weren't listed in post #6 of this thread?

    Getting my SE/30 online

    Or use a transceiver with the AUI port if it has one. If he truly wants to host a BBS, the WiModem232 would be the best option and DB9 to DB25 cables are readily available on ePay.

    Schematics for Power Mac 7600?

    That checks out too. So I got another working 7600 logic board and get the same results, so maybe it's not a serial port issue. If I fire up the latest PPC version of ZTerm v1.1b7, I can't select either one of the serial ports. If I use the 68k version of ZTerm v1.01, the modem port doesn't...

    Nice! Any chance you could zip up that directory and send it my way?

    Hermes BBS install

    Haha! Thanks for going down the rabbit hole. Now that I think about it, I ran into the same issue with the message posting crash but just thought I had an unstable copy of the program. That's one of the reasons I went with v3.5.11 running as a game server on my BBS instead of v3.1.1. Were...

    Sidd's gonna take a look into it and hopefully he can at least disable the serial number check in the message editor. I believe that the program is fully functional otherwise, correct?

    Interesting, so the crack really didn't work. I'll let Sidd know.

    Hermes BBS install

    I think the cracked app just lets you use and old serial number. I guess you'll find out in a month after installing if it doesn't accept outside calls... :oops:
