Networking 7.5 with OSX?
Because my 7200/90 dedicated scanner Mac takes about a million years to boot up (putting OS9 on it was a mistake in hindsight) i decided to dust off another of my old Macs for the odd occaision when i need to put files off my iMac onto a floppy.

So i put my IIci on the network (ethernet), it has 7.5 installed (might be 7.5.3 can't remember exactly) the problem is if i try to connect to my OSX box it can see it but after entering the username/password i get a "connection closed unexpectedly" error.

it works fine the other way however, the OSX box can mount the 7.5 disk no problem but it would be nice to be able to do it the other way too (for example if someone else is using the OSX box so i don't have to disturb them). is there any way to solve this problem?

i've tried assigning a 192.x.x.x IP to the ci but it made no difference.

I think you need to update to 7.5.5 and update AppleShare/Apple Remote Access.

You need AFP over TCP/IP to be functionnal to make it work with MacOS X Servers

yeah but 8 will be slooooow on that mac and the reason i set it up it to be a fast booting mac for if i just want to put something on a floppy. it works X -> 7.5 fine so i'll just stick with that.

thanks for people's help anyway!

8.6 is the first Mac OS to include an AFP client that supports TCP/IP.

You cannot make any version of Mac OS under 8.1 support AFP over TCP/IP -- you might, however, be able to install a newer version of the AppleShare client that will at least allow two-way communication between the machines using AppleTalk.

Hmmm. I had a Performa 475 with ethernet and while I couldn't access it from my G4, I was able to access my G4 from it. This was running 7.6.1.
