I need help. Is there a way to hook up a Apple Personal Laserwriter NTX to a Beige G3 running OS 9? On my old clone I just used the old serial ports via Localtalk. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Tony.

There is indeed a way: a Localtalk to Ethernet Bridge. Look at this article and/or this article

If its a beige G3 with OS 9 why dont you just use the Localtalk cable directly, as with the clone?
