Does anyone have any idea why my Classic might throw a "Divide by zero" error?, when I try and connect to an iMac G3.Its the classic Mac bomb screen and even if you try and restart it gives the same error.

 

Both machines are connected to a switch, and the Classic has a Dayna SCSI/Ethernet box.

 

The iMac G3 has the Networking CP set to Ethernet and the Classic has the same thing set to Alt Ethernet from a  choice of three, the other two do nothing apparently.

 

Both machines have sharing set to on.

More details?

 

Is the Classic accessing the iMac through the chooser and the iMac using OSX an file sharing? what OSes?

 

Update the drivers on the Classic and its SCSI/Ethernet converter, and turn off Sharing the on the Classic.

Yes, Im using chooser - both machines. I think the Classic is using 7.6.1 from memory and the Classic is using 9.2 maybe, but definitely pre OS X.

 

The drivers on the Classic are as up to date as possible.

 

Really - turn off sharing on the Classic?
