PiSCSI file-share options with host Mac SE

Does anyone know if it's possible to download files "directly" accessible to a 68k Mac using System 7.0.1 with PiSCSI?

I have a wonderful little setup in which my PiSCSI has a hard drive emulated and supports wireless web for my old Mac SE FDHD, but I'm still moving files from the modern world to it via floppy disks and I think there's a missed opportunity.

But the PiSCSI wiki implies I need system 7.1 to do this (using AFP). But I'm new to the classic Mac world and don't know if there may be an alternate route (or if I need to suck it up and upgrade to 7.1 - just don't want the SE to become a slug)

Get AppleTalk working following those instructions and it will work fine from 6.mumble upwards. 7.1+ and the workstation update is only needed for AFP-over-TCP, not AFP-over-Appletalk.

Thanks! Dumb question - my Chooser only shows AppleShare and not AppleTalk (but it has the AppleTalk active/inactive toggle in the bottom right) - is that fine/just a version difference or is should I see an AppleTalk icon...

I'm not sure what is wrong - I followed the easyinstall script instructions and the pi thinks it's running, but my apple Chooser is drawing a blank. I do have internet via the Pi - my Mac can even telnet onto it to run things like Lynx browser

Thanks in advance for any debugging suggestions!
