What is the most up-to-date system software can be used reliably for Internet communications with a Mac IIsi (68030 microprocessor, 20 MHz) with 17 MB RAM and 80 MB hard disk.  Also, should MacTCP be used with MacPPP or is there a better configuration?  And what version of Netscape is best?

I suggest System 7.1 which is quite stable and manages memory better that System 7.6 (your other alternative). You can use FreePPP rather than MacPPP, and this will require MacTCP.

Use these:

FreePPP version 2.5v3
MacTCP version 2.0.6

Netscape 2.02 is ideal for your system and takes up much less RAM than Netscape 3.

I have tried all of the above and feel confident that this is the best system and peripherals for the speed of your computer and the RAM available.

Why do you not mention system 7.5, but jump from 7.1 to 7.6 in your reply?

There's nothing inherently wrong with 7.5. I said this because you can get a complete Sys 7.6 installation to take you directly from 7.1 with no intermediate steps. If you already have 7.5 installed (or have access to it)  and don't want 7.6, then 7.5 is OK. Personally, I've found 7.1 does the job pretty well and though I can run 7.6 on an LC575 quite OK (using an external drive as the startup disk), I prefer 7.1 for most operations.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
