I have a PB540c (ethernet ready) and my school has an NT/Win95 network.  I would like to connect to the network to get my local email, surf the net, print and access files.  However, my admin has refused to allow macs on the network.  Is there anything that I can do to get on the network with my PB and do these things without my Admin having to set anything up?  My admin will be of no help, so I will have to do it all myself and I know little about mac-pc networking.

sounds like a real nice "pc jerk" admin. Tell him your mac could outdo any of his PC's anyday and see what he thinks of that.

If your admin hasn't istalled the servives for macintosh you will not be able to access files directly. If your NT-server allows TXP/IP connections you should be able to access it via PPP or something else.

RBR,

If I can access through TCP/IP, or PPP, how do I go about doing that?  I am sure the laptops (peecee) are given dynamic ip addresses, probably through DHCP.  I really would like to know how to set it up, I am pretty new at this.  Thanks in advance.

There is a product called DAVE from Thursby Systems that allows Macs to participate as full clients on SMB over IP. File & Print services work well. Internet stuff should work fine as well with or without DAVE, but you will need either Open Transport for DHCP or a static IP address.  None of this will work if the net is using NetBEUI instead of IP.
