    Developing a portable user-land AppleTalk stack

    Success with the bathroom! I wait for more nice network news in this post!

    Apple Internet Router 3.01

    No need to know anything about Linux As quote from my web site: You need three things to run the gateway: – Virtualisation software, like Virtualbox (https://www.virtualbox.org/) – The virtual machine with macipgw on it . Download below. – A LocalTalk bridge. Can be hardware or software. if you need help. Just let me know. This is why I make these tools.

    Download the MacIPgw VM at www.macip.net and you are also in business. Or the MacIPpi for 24/7 MacIP support.

    Developing a portable user-land AppleTalk stack

    Absolute fantastic what you are doing! Love to test your Mini vMac. I’m into this network LocalTalk thing for many years now. I made my own solution for this challenge. The MacIPpi and MacIPgw VM. (see https://www.macip.net ) But your approach is tempting and promising.
  6. A new product of the guys,... uhhh guy... from www.MacIP.net! The MacIPpi. This is a dead cheap Orange Pi One ($9.99 and $13.64 with shipping) will act as a macipgw (MacIP gateway) and a Netatalk afpd file server. It will allow you to surf the Internet with your old Macintosh without any problems. Just connect your old Macintosh with a normal LocalTalk bridge, like an Asante AsanteTalk or a Dayna Etherprint to you LAN and startup you MacIPpi. You can also use an old networking Mac with the LocalTalk Bridge control panel to do the work. You set your Mac with MacTCP on f.i. 172.16.2.2 (anything between 172.16.2.2 and 254, subnet mask 255.255.255.0), as gateway 172.16.2.1 and DNS 8.8.8.8. Or do the same with a TCP/IP control panle, but then choose Connect via: AppleTalk (MacIP) and configure: Using MacIP manually. Same IP information. Start a TCP/IP kind of program like, Fetch, Telnet or a browser and of you go to the Internet! So, what do you you have to do to get this up and running: - Order a Orange Pi One - A good Power adapter (5V 2A), or buy it together with your Orange Pi One. - Take care for a 8GB SD card and maybe a case or buy everything together as a set. Shipping will take 8 to 14 days. Download my image from www.macip.net. Use 7zip to unzip. http://cdn.macip.net/Armbian_5.07_Orangepih3_Debian_jessie_4.6.0-rc1.7z Use dd on Linux systems (and MacOSX) to put the image on the SD disk. This will be a command like this: dd if=Armbian_5.07_Orangepih3_Debian_jessie_4.6.0-rc1.raw|pv|dd of=/dev/sdc bs=16M On a Windows system you can use a tool like Win32DiskImager Connect you Orange Pi One to the network with a cable. It will get an IP address from your home router if you power it on. After a few minutes it will be ready. Take this time because the appletalk daemon needs some time to settle. Even no need to connect a screen. If you want you can login from your Macintosh with Telnet or SSH. You can use IP address 172.16.2.1 to connect. If you want to connect from a Mac OSX, Windows or Linux machine you have to find out the IP address or use a serial console. If you want to login username is: orangepi and password: orangepi You can become root by entering sudo -iand password orangepi The system is running Debian strech/sid and kernel 4.6.0

    Apple Profile hard drive

    Some more pictures how it looks with BLU and NeoWideX
  8. Profile disk I recently acquired a Apple Profile drive. It’s case did got damaged in transit but it was repairable. On YouTube there are some video’s how the disk starts up, so I knew where to look for. I thought it would be nice to film the first and second startup up and have a close up at the stepping motor. I post some pictures and the movies here. If I have news about the actual condition ( will it work....) I will post it also here. Some pictures:

    Exercise the disk with BLU:
  10. I'm always very happy to know people are using this solution! Thanks for letting me know! Correct. No software. You should do it on your own. http://macintoshgarden.org/ is a good starting point. I added it on the site! Thanks for telling me. I changed it on the site:
  11. I recenty bought a EtherWave Mac/PB Adapter and would like to connect my old school Mac's to the Internet. I have seen some posting that these devices support TCP/IP. Is there someone out there who has a manual? Or an idea how to do this? I got it working for LocalTalk. Not easy because I first had to solder a cap out and change it! This is the device: http://atomictoasters.com/2010/12/guerrilla-networking-i-farallon-etherwave-for-macs/

    Apple Profile hard drive

    I connected it to my internal paralel cable to an 'in between cable' , a DB25 male male Lisa paralel cable and tested. Works fine! I could install a fresh system on it with the help of my FlopyEmu. 5MB back to live!

    Lisa1

    What ever happend to this Lisa? It is repaired? Would love to have an update.
  14. mactjaap

    How interesting is the Lisa?

    I’m also a big Lisa fan. I restored one which ones was used at our national broadcast station (NOS). When I got it, it was case and video board only. I acquired the internals of a Lisa 2/10 Then I got a second love….the widget drive. I have two. Not working, but still have hope. Lisa is for me like the start of GUI and serious use of HD. I really love to see how many parts where necessary to get the machine going. In the Netherlands they are also extremely rare. And .. I also own a MISA or Lacintosh.. https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?/topic/25212-is-it-a-lisa-is-it-a-macintosh/

    Some more pictures. Before shipping. To complete the information about this disk. The disk runs at 110V. I have an inverter.

    Bought myself a Widget drive....

    I found this in the Lisa 2 owners guide: http://www.bitsavers.org/pdf/apple/lisa/owners_manual/Lisa_2_Owners_Guide_1984.pdf Error 85: Disk timeou. In other postings I did see this: So maybe the motor controling board. Sometimes BLU start disk sees the disk. And I see this: It gives a lot of bad blocks.....
  17. I know..the changes of getting it running are slim....but I gave myself a change. This was what I found on Ebay: It is on its way the The Netherlands. Some pictures....

    Bought myself a Widget drive....

    It arrived! Thanks to Shipito. Makes it less expensive to send stuff to Europe. It tested it right away: It spins and NeoWidget sees it as a Widget! That is a good start. But..it is giving a 10726 error or a 85 error. What is strange is that my "sort of working disk" gives the same errors! Could it be my self costumised power supply? Some more:

    These things are very rare, so I take the chance! Keep you posted here!
  20. This doesn't look like the simple approach I use. Just install VirtualBox on your PC and test. I see things about converting VirtualBox to VWware.... but never needed it. Virtual Box works...out of the box! https://www.howtogeek.com/125640/how-to-convert-virtual-machines-between-virtualbox-and-vmware/ Not sure what you mean? Debian. .as of the OS of the MacIP VM?

  21. The MacIPpi solutions are mostly used for bridging TCP/IP over AppleTalk. But it becomes more and more a swiss pocket knive for networking with old Macintosh. So adding samba, PPP and even printing, etc. could be nice goal for future versions. I never ever printed form old Macintosh to modern printers, so it is a little bit off my confprt zone. But I will test.
  22. @sixsevenco You are reading my mind... In my development version of the MacIPPi I have implemented Samba. So you can then use any form of file sharing: AppleShare FTP SCP Windows mounts/ Samba
  23. mactjaap

    Link Mac SE with MacMini via AppleTalk?

    Try a MacIP ( www.macip.net ) solution in your network. Lots of file sharing possible.
  24. Hi Sixsevenco, Thank you very much for your nice words about my project. I know that there is not exactly a big market for this solution...but if you need it...it is nice to have it around! If you don’t have a Orange Pi the VM or iso is a good solution. You definitely got me thinking about the Raspberry Pi. I know it is more common. I started with the Orange Pi because it is really very cheap. $9.99 I will think about it! I’m happy you will like to try it. If you PM me your details I will ask somebody to send you an Orange Pi for free.
  25. Nice find! I didn't knew they excited. A Macintosh Plus with internal SyMBiotic 20 MB hard disk. I put some pictures here. Didn't open the case yet. Boots form hard disk. Is there anyone with documentation about this hard disk maker?
