Centris 610 Built-in Ethernet
Posted on 1997-11-09
I have a Centris 610 runnint System 7.5.5 and OT 1.1.2.
I bought an ethernet adapter for the AAUI port and used
an RJ-45 cable to plug it into a little hub I have hooked
up to an ISDN box. I get a link light on the hub for my
Mac. The hub and the ISDN box work as I've used them
both with another machine (a Win NT 4.0 laptop) so the
problem is somewhere in my Mac. Basically, when I
configure OT TCP/IP with all the right numbers (I've
checked them and double-checked them), it just doesn't
work. I've used OTTool to test and get no response from
ping, traceroute, or DNS. TCP/IP applications like
Netscape never connect. I do have the Apple built-in
I do not have Appletalk turned on. This network does
not route Appletalk nor are there any other Appletalk
devices on the network. This is only a TCP/IP network.
Do I need to have Appletalk turned on to use OT TCP/IP?
My printer just died, so I could activate it on the
printer port and just ignore it... is there a way to
have Appletalk use the Ethernet port? I haven't looked
into the Appletalk much because I assumed it was
unnessecary for a pure TCP/IP network (the Internet).
Is there some configuration I've missed? What else
can I check?
