     Hello, I have a 486 Win95 computer and a Macintosh PowerPC. I want the PC to be able to hook up to my Mac some way so it can share the ISDN connection my Mac has running. I would also like it to possibly be able to transfer files back and forth but it is not greatly needed now. If you give me the question I will upgrade the points to 200. Thank you so much for your help.

For sharing a MAC ISDN connection with an Windows 95 PC I know no software. I even think there won't be any. If you want to connect Windows 95 with a Mac use MacLan95 From Miramar Systems.

I have the solution to share an ISDN Internet connection.

Yes, you can use PC MACLAN for Windows 95 to accomplish file transfers.  However, if you will be sharing an Internet connection (with my solution), you should use COPSTalk for Windows 95.  COPSTalk will allow you to transfer over TCP/IP, rather than peer-to-peer with MACLAN.

Let me know if you want the solution.

Vicom internet gateway (www.vicomtech.com) will letcha share the isdn over the network and supply the necessary tcp/ip router stuff. Pc Maclan or Dave for mac will work for file transfers. thats all ya need to know...oh yeah...neither of those programs are cheap.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

weed,

The one I was referring to is about $299, and COPSTalk for Windows 95 is $99...What do you mean by not cheap?
