Starting Appleshare network
Posted on 1997-04-15
I just bought a second Mac for my office. What hardware do I need to buy and HOW do I start an Appleshare network?
One Mac is LC575/ 36Mb/160Mb and other is 9500/150/ 16Mb/1Gb. Both have their own "primary" applications. Other existing devices are: SyQuest EZ135 and Scanner on SCSI chain, Modem, Inkjet printer and large format plotter on serial ports.
Future expansion will be a laser printer. Far future will possibly be another Mac-- well, maybe not.
Right now, I'm physically plugging and unplugging the two serial printers off of the LC575. So a serial switch cable is soon need, right? Any alternative to this?
Lowest cost is highest priority, of course. Thanks
