    Scheduled On/Off for Macintosh SE - Suggestions Needed

    Wisconsin. Ja wohl. There was a high density of German immigrants to the state in the mid to late 1800's. Is this an American history or a Mac forum? I'm looking into it now that the door has been opened.

    The Definitive Guide to Connecting your SE/30

    I've been out of the retro Mac scene for about a year and forgot a lot of the minor nuances of vintage Mac networking. Your guide: MAGNIFICENT.

    Hätte ich nur 30 EUR und europäischen Stecker. Die deutschen Geräte sind immer besser.

    Scheduled On/Off for Macintosh SE - Suggestions Needed

    Thanks for the tip Macdrone! I've picked out a programmable electrical timer on Amazon.
  5. Hello 68kmla, It's been a while since I played with my vintage Macs. I'm getting back into it by refurbishing a spare Macintosh SE with a RAM upgrade and a new battery. It is going to go on my desk at work. It is sure to attract attention as our IT environment is 95% Apple from 2008 to the current day. What I would like it to do is automatically turn on/off at scheduled times. Is there some software/extensions/preference pane that will do this? Also: Any other suggestions with what I could do with it other than run HappyPlusClock would be appreciated. Thanks, Ken

    Getting a Classic II on TCP/IP

    I too am trying to locate a copy of Apple IP Gateway. I'm not with it enough to figure out the Hotline / KDX client.

    Mac Classic Server for Retro Challenge - Need Some Help

    Well my Classic logic board is acting up now. I keep getting a range of errors before System 7 loads. It looks like the server is out of the question.

    Mac Classic Server for Retro Challenge - Need Some Help

    I'm using a Trendnet router. Oddly there is no specific area entitled "Port Forwarding," but the Virtual Server does allocate which machine on the internal network is the server. Here's a link to an emulator of my router. Virtual Server is located under the "Access" option. http://www.trendnet.com/emulators/TEW-432BRP_B1/adv_virtual.html I do have both the IP and MAC address for the Classic set as static numbers. I will play with the port settings a bit more today and see what I come up with. Thanks!
  9. Hello 68kmla, I'm looking for a little help to get my entry up and running. I'm planning on taking part in the Retro Challenge coming up in about a week. What am I doing? Well... I can't spill all my secrets... but I want to host my progress site on my blazing fast Mac Classic. So far I have the software set up and working okay. I'm having a slight problem with having the domain I registered with DynDns.org to resolve properly. The Macintosh Classic is running MacHTTP 2.5.1 to serve the site on port 80. It is connected via an Asante ENSC to the network with a static IP of My router is set up for Dynamic DNS through DynDns.org to resolve the address thismac.is-a-geek.com (the "is-a-geek.com" is one of DynDns.org's free domain options). The router is running a virtual server to direct traffic coming in on port 80 and to the Macintosh Classic. Sending a ping command in Terminal to thismac.is-a-geek.com returns the IP address of my router. A quick DNS Lookup on any search engine returns this too. I have tried changing the port settings on my router and MacHTTP to 8008, 8080, and a few others with little luck. The address thismac.is-a-geek.com won't resolve properly. I believe that my ISP may be blocking these ports (it is a university connection... ssshhh). Is there a way around this issue? What does work? Typing the IP address on my network to access the Mac Classic. Changing the port settings and typing also does work. Accessing the server from an external network does not work though. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Some of the hardware I may be using...
