  1. @nglevin Thanks for your good answers, as always. I suppose that the SCSI implementation in 7.1.1 Pro will be the same as in 7.1 and not possible to improve on (in this generation of OS). So upgrading to 7.1.1 Pro will probably not solve my SCSI problem and I should not attempt it. I need a system that works bort wrt SCSI and FTP. In my experience the SCSI-implementation is better in 7.5.3 than in 7.1 w.r.t. interfacing to other, older SCSIequipment (7.1 scsi is not usable, but 7.5.3 SCSI works fine). My Color Classic had 7.1 when I got it two years ago so I have tried both 7.1 and 7.5.3. I guess then that my best bet perhaps will be to upgrade my CC logicboard to a Lc575, still keep system 7.5.3(which works wrt SCSI) and hopefully the CC will then both be faster and work better wrt FTP, than my CC does now. @mraroid cool down.. please.
  2. I downloaded SSW-7-Pro-Disk-Images from MacintoshGarden and followed the instructions for installing system 7.1.1 Pro and ran the Compatibility Checker which instructed me to remove a lot of files from the old 7.1 system folder including the 401 enabler, which I did Of course now my CC won´t restart so I can´t continue the installation, but assuming I get my backup SD card into my SCSI2SD drive so I can boot system 7.1; is there a specific way to install System 7.1.1 Pro on the CC that will work? Is it possible? The best would be to install 7.1.1 Pro (over my 7.1) in such a way as not having to reinstall all my old applications. The reason I want to try 7.1.1Pro is that using FTP on OS7.5.3 proved much too slow for it to work reliably.
  3. I forgot to mention, the audio editor I have installed is Alchemy v3 in OS7.1. None of the file associations in Finder for the transferred sound files are correct, they both show up as document type, but this is not so cruical since I am able to open the WAV files from within Alchemy. Another observation is that when I used zip-disks to transfer WAV and AIFF files to the the exact same thing happens; I could only open the WAV files. I think PC Exchange plays a role here because if my memory is right I was not able to read WAV files either before installing PC Exchange (but it only seems to convert the WAV files correctly and not the AIFF files). So, probably some creator/type code/information is missing for the AIFF files when they go from from OSX10.11 to OS7.1 that PC Exchange is not able to correct, but that is ok as long as I am able to open WAV files. Usng ResEdit for each file will be too timeconsuming when working on lots of files. The reason for trying to get FTP to work was that the ZIP disk not an alternative for file transfers as it was not reliable. sometimes, when the zip disk is connected, I get the grid pattern on startup and the SE/30 freezes, even though have recapped the logic board - not sure why this happens..
  4. Finally updating to OpenTransport 1.1.2 solved it. I am able to open WAV files, but not AIFF files.

    FTP and OS7.6

    I just tried the FTP connection with system 7.5.3 on my ColorClassic and the OSX10.11 iMac. I read somewhere that there was a difference in compatibility taking place between OS7.5 and 7.6 wrt FTP. Could my FTP problems with transferring .AIF and .WAVE files be made easier with upgrading to OS7.6 (system 7.6)?
  6. I have tried with many different files now but I am not able to transfer uncompressed, readable .AIF files from the iMac to the SE/30. Are you able to do it?
  7. Crutch, Whenever you are at the SE/30: are you able to choose a .AIF file on the SE/30, transfer it to the Mojave computer, then send it back to the SE/30 and still be able to play it? I might perhaps just have a bad FTP configuration.
  8. I have transferred an .AIF file from a OS7.1 SE/30 to my OSX10.11 iMac via FTP without problems, but when I try to FTP the (unaltered) file back from the iMac to the SE/30 it is not successfull (it shows up as zero bytes in the SE/30). An idea then is to use a bridge computer.eg. a G4 running OS9.2.2. If I have a working .AIF file on my SE/30 running OS7.1 and if I send this from SE/30 to an intermediary OS9 G4 to an iMac OSX10.11 via FTP, then edit the .AIF on this iMac in an audio editor, then save it still as an .AIF file and transfer it back to the SE/30 (via the intermediate OS9 macintosh) using FTP would the resource fork of the .AIF file still be intact when it reaches the SE/30?

    Help on connecting SE/30 to LAN/router

    Perhaps that could be a solution. Would the audio files be ok going from SE/30 to G4 to the iMac and then back again and still work in the SE/30 with the resource forks intact? I still have my ca 2002 G4 running OS9.2.2. How would that work?

    Help on connecting SE/30 to LAN/router

    Midi and audio - very different things.. it is the audio files that are interesting to work on with different systems. Another thought would be to make a dual boot iMac with an old and a new version of OSX on it, using the old version when I wanted to work with OS7 files and FTP. But my 2011 iMac probably wont be able to run OSX 10.4 tiger...

    Help on connecting SE/30 to LAN/router

    The thing is that I want to process the soundfiles on my modern OSX 10.11 computer before I transfer them back to the SE/30, so I guess the resource forks of the audio files will be damaged . I was given the advice that Netpresenz could do this, but reading his advice a little more in detail now I realize that he was using OS7 and OSX10.4 tiger. Sad to realize this when I finally got the FTP configured and working.

    Help on connecting SE/30 to LAN/router

    I see. Actually I cant say that it is working 100%: When I write files from the iMac OSX10.11 to the SE/30 the files comes out as 0 bytes/corrupted on the SE/30. It reminds me when I used a zip drive instead of the FTP connection (the files resource fork is lost?) to transfer files between the iMac and the SE/30 I think I experienced the same. Surely there must be a solution to this? (I am mainly transferring audio Wav and Aiff files). Are there any options here or must I give up?

    Help on connecting SE/30 to LAN/router

    Thanks Johnnya, I suspected it could be something like that - it was next on my to-do list But then I found out it actually it works using just MacTCP so I might just keep that for the moment. And the Asante card also works via ethernet cable directly to my high speed router (Dlink DIR-809 router) so I might not use the Wifi bridge - I thought it was necessary to use a Wifi bridge when connecting to modern high-speed modems, because of the speed conversion. But is is not, in my case. I will investigate more wireless vs wire and stability. Wireless seem to be a bit unstable than cable so far loosing connection using the Vonets VM300 Wifi bridge. Also the VM300 seem to take longer to boot than the SE/30, so I am not sure it will work that well when it is integrated into the SE/30 and they are power on at the same time.
