You need what is called an AAUI to 10Base-T adapter. Check your local Mac store, or eBay, or Sun Remarketing... (AAUI is a custom adapter Apple made, and can be easily turned to a standard RJ-45 with this adapter. The adapter does not need drivers, as it is still just plain ethernet.)

after getting an AAUI-to-RJ-45 adapter, you'll also need a copy of PC MacLAN on all the PC's so that they can recognize the Quadra, because the only common networking protocol available to it is AppleTalk.

Or DAVE on the Mac, which is probably the better solution if you have only one Mac and multiple PCs. (i.e. install software on the fewest machines possible. If you have one Mac and a bunch of PCs, get DAVE. If you have one PC and a bunch of Macs, get MacLAN.)

The May issue of MacFormat had an article on networking pc & mac.

I wouldn't bother, that is to say.......

I would use either:-

The internet

Softmac

You know, NT 3.51 Server and NT 4 server included "Services for Macintosh", a nice fake Appleshare client compatible service. ie, no software needed on the Mac end. It's a little clunky in some ways but it does work, and lets you do seamless Mac/PC file transfer. As long as you are conscious of what is happening.

I forget if Win2k server includes this, but probably. It's mature software, hasn't changed in years.

if your looking for simple file sharing then ftp can be good.
its also free and has a good choice of different servers and clients for both mac and pc.

im irish, it is my duty to ask stupid questions.
