Is it possible to connect a Mac Performa 6400 to a Windows 95 peer-to-peer network (Ethernet)?  If yes, what hardware and software are needed, and what are the required software settings?

Thanks.

I need the answer clarified.  You mention using the "standard TCP/IP programs" to connect to my PCs.  What are examples of such programs that would come loaded on my new Performa 6400, and how would the software settings be configured to communicate with the PCs?  I know there MUST be more to it than just connecting everything up and clicking "connect".

I'd like to request another Expert.  The original answer given was vague, and the Expert could not provide clarification.

PC MacLan 6.0 from Miramar Systems will allow Peer-Peer networking from Mac to Win 95.

This will give the PC capability to fully access Appletalk protocalls.

To get more information you can visit Miramar's web site at:
