    Mac SE/30 network problems

    I tried again some hours later - Netscape works very few times, while MacWeb always works. But if I open Netscape as soon as I close MacWeb, it works more often. Could it be that Netscape likes to have an already transmitting connection? The problem occurring is the same as before: "Netscape was unable to create a network socket connection".

    Mac SE/30 network problems

    Thanks a lot @nglevin! Where can I edit the preferences about JavaScript and pictures? I can't seem to find them in Netscape 2.02.

    Mac SE/30 network problems

    Thanks @Bolle, I followed your instructions and I managed to connect to the internet with Netscape - evviva (as we say here ). But unfortunately it crashed soon after, it's very buggy and same happens with iCab (it doesn't even start). I had some luck with MacWeb, but that's it. But in the end something works, and I'm very happy with the results so far, thanks to everyone here!

    Mac SE/30 network problems

    I manually entered 192.168.1.13 as IP, and 255.255.255.0 as subnet mask. As for the rest, I really don't know what to insert.

    Mac SE/30 network problems

    Thanks for replying! At startup Netscape says: "Netscape was unable to create a network socket connection. There may be insufficient system resources or the network may be down (Reason: ) Try connecting again later or try restarting Netscape." Then I press OK and whatever HTTP URL I type it comes up with the same phrase.

    Mac SE/30 network problems

    Hello everyone! I recently acquired a CNET technology cn470e PDS card, which I installed some days ago. I wrote another post about it, but unfortunately no-one replied (https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/57586-se30-cnet-network-card/). Probably the post is too dense and full of useless things... . I am trying to surf the internet with the SE/30, but I am completely stuck. I installed OT 1.3 and AppleShare 3.7.4, Netscape 2.02 and iCab 2.99 (freezes at startup). The red LED is on (connection is good) but the greed LED is off (data being transmitted). What do I do from here? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot.

    SE/30 startup problems

    Hmm, unfortunately I don't think I have a terminator at home...I just have the Zip drive and somewhere a Jaz drive to connect Maybe I can find one and buy it.

    SE/30 startup problems

    Hello everyone! My SE/30 has always had a weird problem: if I boot from the internal hard disk, most of the time the system software doesn't load, and the floppy icon appears (as if the HDD took to long to spin). This happens almost every time, maybe it will boot once every 20 times or more, and mostly at cold boot. But if I connect a SCSI Zip drive (even without a cartridge), the Mac boots just fine to System 7.5.5. I have a 8gb hard drive with five partitions, the system folder is in partition 1. Otherwise it's a stock SE/30 that needs recapping (no sound). RAM is 8mb. Anyone knows why this happens? Thanks a lot!

    SE/30 CNET network card

    Hello everyone! I hope this is the right place to post this, if not so then I'll remove the post. Some weeks ago I acquired on eBay a PDS network card for my SE/30: it's a CNET Technology CN470E card. Just today I found some time to install it, and TattleTech indeed confirmed some stats about this card: Now, as I have never used network cards before, I would like to know if some you could help me in configuring it and try surfing the web/share files/email, etc. There is an older topic on the forum about this card (https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/55066-anyone-able-to-identify-this-se30-network-card/&tab=comments#comment-584140), but it wasn't completely solved and I hope the drivers included with system 7 are good enough. I have also read the pinned guide to connect the SE/30 to the web, but it confused me quite a bit. I also have lots of (probably) unnecessary things in my system folder. Maybe some of you could tell me if I can delete some control panels/extensions and replace them with more efficient ones. I know it's a real mess, but somehow I feel most of those things are not needed for what I intend to do. I don't have many ways to transfer files to the SE/30: I only have a SCSI Zip drive and a USB Zip drive for my modern PC and Mac. Also: do I need a particular router? A particular Ethernet cable? I'm totally new about this. Thanks a lot! P.S. what does the little lever (on the right side of the card) do?

    SE/30 new ROM and other things

    Very nice setup @SE30_Neal! I wish I was lucky too with my se/30, but unfortunately when I bought mine it was only the machine itself. Last month I saw a network card go away for 45€ here in Italy, but I arrived too late . Buying one from eBay seems to be excessively expensive these days... Does anyone have any news on the custom se/30 card being built by @jamesmilne (if I recall correctly)?

    SE/30 new ROM and other things

    No hijack, this is getting quite interesting. Isn't is possible to somehow ask GGLABS wether they can flash something in particular on the ROM? From what I understand they don’t reply to messages, so this could be tricky.

    SE/30 new ROM and other things

    Interesting! I too am thinking of buying GGLABS ROM. Can they flash a minimal system folder on it? At first I considered the Rominator, but I disliked the custom boot chime, and the other mod. In the end it went out of stock anyway so problem solved. And I too would like a SE/30 as stock as possible

    Thanks everyone! SE/30 RAM has to be installed in groups of four, correct?
