Hello,
I am a UNIX guy.  First time to try on the Mac networking.  I tried to setup a TCP/IP network on a Mac 7100/80 .  I use a transciever and hook up the etwork using 10BaseT.  I have make it active and set an address for it.  However, when I use another machince to ping this machine.  The Mac machine doesn't response.  Will you please all the Mac experts give me a clue what I have doen wrong ?

I assume that you have:
MacOS 7.5.5, Open Transport 1.1.2
Extensions folder: ObjectSupportLib, Shared Library Manager, Shared Library Manager PPC, File Sharing Extension, Ethernet (built-in), ENET compatibility, Network Extension, AppleShare, Serial (built-in).
Control Panels folder: AppleTalk, TCP/IP, Sharing Setup, Users & Groups.
Apple Menu Items folder: Chooser
System folder: System, Finder, enabler (if any), MacTCP DNR.
Hardware: one 10baseT hub, 2 Power Macintosh computers, 10baseT (built-in) on both Macs, CAT5 cables, green indicator lights at the hub for both Macintosh computers (power on), nothing else on the network.

Configure TCP/IP Control Panel (1st Mac):
Connect via: Ethernet
Configure: Manually
IP Address: 192.0.0.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
All other fields: blank

Configure TCP/IP Control Panel (2nd Mac):
Connect via: Ethernet
Configure: Manually
IP Address: 192.0.0.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
All other fields: blank

Configure Sharing Setup Control Panel (1st Mac):
Owner Name: andrewma 01
Owner Password: whatever
Macintosh Name: andrewma 01 CPU
File Sharing: On (hit the Start button)

Configure Sharing Setup Control Panel (2nd Mac):
Owner Name: andrewma 02
Owner Password: whatever
Macintosh Name: andrewma 02 CPU
File Sharing: On (hit the Start button)

Configure AppleTalk Control Panel (1st Mac):
Connect via: Ethernet

Configure AppleTalk Control Panel (2nd Mac):
Connect via: Ethernet

Configure User & Groups Control Panel (1st Mac):
Pull down the File Menu and select New User.
Enter a password or leave it blank.
Give it the Owner Name of 2nd Mac (andrewma 02)
Double click on it and put an X in the appropriate boxes

Configure User & Groups Control Panel (2nd Mac):
Pull down the File Menu and select New User.
Enter a password or leave it blank.
Give it the Owner Name of 2nd Mac (andrewma 01)
Double click on it and put an X in the appropriate boxes

What to share (1st Mac):
single click (highlight) on mounted the Macintosh HD volume (on the desktop)
Pull down Sharing form the File Menu
Click (put an X) on the box - Share this item and its contents
Owner: andrewma 01 (put an X on the 3 boxes to its right)
User/group: <none> (put an X on the 3 boxes to its right)
Everyone: (put an X on the 3 boxes to its right)
Leave the last box unchecked (Make all currently enclosed folder like this one)

What to share (2nd Mac):
single click (highlight) on mounted the Macintosh HD volume (on the desktop)
Pull down Sharing form the File Menu
Click (put an X) on the box - Share this item and its contents
Owner: andrewma 02 (put an X on the 3 boxes to its right)
User/group: <none> (put an X on the 3 boxes to its right)
Everyone: (put an X on the 3 boxes to its right)
Leave the last box unchecked (Make all currently enclosed folder like this one)

Now both machines are ready to be servers and clients. Pull down the Apple Menu and select the Chooser. Single click on the AppleShare icon. The name of the other machine shows up to the right of the AppleShare icon under "Select a file server." Single click on the name and click on the OK button or simply double click on the name. Your owner name will be filled in the box by default, so you only need enter the password (if any). Highlight the volume you want to mount on your desktop and click OK.

The other machines volume now mounts on your desktop. You may open it with a double click. You can also trash files since I told you to click all the boxes at the "What to share" step. Now might be a good time to review that idea.

That should get you going. Adding more machines is easy.

-Good Luck, TheHub

Did you try to start a Program wich uses the TCP/IP socket on your Mac? Is this Program running? Can you ping your Mac after you started this Program?

Then its easy.

jschulz,
I have not try start program which use TCP/IP.  I don't even know there is a ping program in my MAC.  I have to use my UNIX box to try to ping my MAC, but it doesn't work.  Do I miss some package in the OS 8 or do I need to buy a 3rd party package for my ping, telnet , and ftp ?
