    MacTCP Settings..?

    You should probably use Open Transport v 1.2 on both those macs instead of classic TCP networking. IMO Most modern routers don't like those old 10 cards so an older hub or switch between the router and old Mac is preferred. For more info Research Open Transport. There's a wealth of info on it here.

    Just acquired a Macintosh SE. Some questions I have...

    I couldn't read this whole thread because of that nerdy picture of you.
  3. If you're going to allow hacks then 1 intel Mac with vMac and SheepShaver would do it.
  4. I meant to mention that all the 68k Macs that are connected to this MacIPgw network thru PhoneNet that are running OpenTransport have their TCP/IP settings setup using: Connect Via: AppleTalk(MacIP) Configure: Using MacIP Server The 68k Macs that are not using OpenTransport have their MacTCP v 2.1 settings setup manually Give it an IP in the 172.16.2.x range from the MacIPgw subnet mask = 255.255.255.0 router address = 172.16.2.1 Domain name Server Information: Enter a period for the first space in Domain Enter 172.16.2.1 for the IP Address Restart Classic networked Macs to make changes and then on reboot it should be on the internet.
  5. So, I have MacIPgw v2.3 running in VM on Mac OS X Server 10.6.8. It's working fine. This particular setup (mine) involves an existing Mac OS X Server with proper dns and a domain name. The VM bridges on the internal LAN using en0 which will then use a static IP from the Mac OS X Server 192.168.17.105. Firewall settings on the Mac OS X Server will allow Apple File Services and AppleTalk Protocols. In the VM Network settings be sure to "Allow VMs" under the "Promiscuous Mode" menu. To create a route in Mac OS X using Terminal enter sudo route add 172.16.2.0/25 192.168.x.x The 192.168.x.x = the IP you want the MacIPgw to use from Mac OS X Server. en0 on the Mac OS X Server is connected to a gigabit hub in my case, which many other devices and Macs are connected and obtain an IP from Mac OS X Server. One of the 68k Macs I have is also connected to this hub. It is a Performa 400 with a Farallon ethernet card installed. This Macintosh (connected to the same hub that is putting out IPs in the range of 192.168.1.x range from the Mac OS X Server's DHCP server) will get an IP address from the MacIPgw running in the VM. Open Transport is installed on this Perfoma and the TCP/IP control panel is set to use MacIP Server to get and IP automatically from the MacIPgw in the form of 172.16.2.x range. The dns server is set to 8.8.8.8 automatically and this Mac's Appletalk control panel is set to use "Ethernet". This Mac also runs Apple's LocalTalk Bridge software and has a Farallon PhoneNet Adapter connected to printer port. This PhoneNet is connect to a Mac SE/30 and the Mac SE/30 is connected to a Mac SE and the Mac SE is connected to a Powerbook 520c, then the PhoneNet is terminated. Also connected to the very same Hub thru ethernet is an Ibook G3 running Mac OS 9.2.2 and AppleShareIP v6 and is getting an IP from the same MacIPgw in the 172.16.2.x range. So in each of the the choosers on all the 68k Macs, each can see each other plus they see the MacIPGW share, and the ibook. They can all use the internet either using OpenTransport or MacTCP v 2.1. The ibook also has Shareware IP Pro which allows all LocalTalk enabled 68k Macs to be multi-homed over Appletalk thus allowing any Modern Mac to login into any 68 Mac on the PhoneNet network using the ibook's IP plus the corresponding port number which was setup in Shareware IP. ie. 172.16.2.3:18 would resolve to Mac SE/30. Using Mac OS X Connect to Server menu. If I find an inexpensive PowerPC with LocalTalk ports and ethernet to replace the Perfoma400 task of being the LocalTalk to AppleTalk bridge, things would probably speed up and that same Mac can also run the Shareway IP software which requires a PPC. I loaded SheepShaver emulator and added it to the MacIPgw too and that can get the internet as well. Thanks for the update on this Gateway, it's great!!
  6. That's better, thank you. Able to download now.
  7. Hi mactjaap, I cannot seem to download the 2.3 version the links are dead.
