This will be old hat for many of you, but someone else who's getting into the hobby might find it useful. I decided to see if I could remotely access my SE/30 from my primary machine, fully expecting that if I got it to work, it would be completely unusable. It ended up working really well.
Installed Timbuktu Pro 4.0 on the SE/30. The file is a .toast image. Mounted that on the modern Mac, then used Stuffit in an OS 9 virtual machine to make a new archive that I could unstuff on the SE/30.
Downloaded Timbuktu Pro 8.8.5 for the Sierra machine. This won't run out of the box. Put the Timbuktu folder in your Applications folder, then issue the following commands in Terminal:
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\ Pro.app/
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\ Pro.app/\
open /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\ Pro.app/Contents/SharedSupport/\
open /Applications/Timbuktu\ Pro/Timbuktu\ Pro.app
Once you get Timbuktu 8.8.5 open, you can do a File --> New Connection --> TCP/IP tab to your classic Mac's IP address.
I was astonished to find that there was barely any lag. The only drawback is that if your modern mac has a high resolution display, the screen of your classic Mac is going to be small — Timbuktu doesn't support scaling. Lots of cool features, though: video capture, screenshots, file sharing, etc.
Amazing what these ancient Macs are still capable of!
