A long time ago AppleInisder posted some screen shots of 9.1 beta and there was this thing called Network Setup:



Man that looked cool- I think it was like the chooser, appletalk, ethernet, ppp, and more all rolled into one. It was what I was looking forward to most in 9.1!

You're not alone!!! Network Setup was probably the most anticipated feature in OS 9.1 for me, and it's nowhere to be seen. I really was looking forward to get rid of this bloated, old Remote Access/TCP-IP/Modem control panel mess.

You what's wierd though, there is a Network Setup Extension in the Extensions Folder. WTF is that doing there?

actually, "network setup extension" and "network setup scripting" have been in the extensions folder since OS 8 or 8.1.

open script editor, and look at the dictionary for "network setup scripting" in the "Scripting Additions" folder in your Extensions. you can set _all_ your network settings by calling to its database [a la netinfo/niutil].

i'm sure the location manager uses it. i could never quite get it to work [not too much documentation on it] - but now that i've tackled netinfo and niutil i'll bet i could crack it...

i've been so on OS X, i forgot that they tried to stitch all those control panels together in yet another alpha release...

Lunchbox.......

Your'e so right, I've only looked briefly into the "new" items and I was looking for that network set-up panel as-well.

It did look pretty cool, I wonder what heppenned to it? Unless it's going to wind-up in the next version of AppleShare IP. I did notice that under the servers section on Apple's website there's supposed to be a ASIP 6.3.3, but no update to be found yet.

Is this feature of a possible "OS 9.5" maybe?????????? Hmmmmmmmmm
