I would like to establish an ethernet connection with a 7200 series Mac and a PC running Win 3.1.  I have posted a question on the Win 3.1 side asking what protocol I should use over this ethernet connection.  I now ask the Mac guru's the same.  Where do I go in the Mac GUI to accomplish this.  Thanks.

Look on a site called macwindows.com to see if they have any info.  With other versions of windows, I do not know if it will work with win 3.1 there is Dave from Thursby at thursby.com.  Or even a pc emulater like virtual pc from Connectix you should find info on the above site about these packages.  But we would need to know what version of the mac os you are running, as current products will not run on older mac os versions, which will mean finding older versions of either program.

You can do this either way.  Either add an Appleshare client on your Windows station, in which case you can log into your Mac just like another Macintosh.  Or add Windows netoworking utility like DAVE to your Mac.  MacOS X  10.2 comes with Windows networking built-in,but  you'll need to do some tweaking to get Jaguar to install on it.  (if you're feeling that bold, try obtaining Unsupported Utility on VersionTracker.com.

This also presupposes you've got what you need on the hardware connection side, either a cross cable between the two machines or both connected to a hub or switch.
