Does SMS 1.2 work with non OT Macs?

Greetings,
I have SMS 1.2 Service Pack 3. The Mac client is available, but I can only make it work on OpenTrasport (TCP/IP) Mac's and not on the macs with classic networking (MacTCP). The client runs until the "Macintosh Serial Port" part, and then I get an error 11 and the mac is dead.
Any suggestions?

Hi....
I read up on this and microsoft say that it works with System 7.x so I guess that
it is OK with Non OpenTransport macs.
Just one thing, can you connect to/from these macs using other TCP/IP apps, like a browser, ftpd, or telnet or something?
If these do not work, I guess we'll have to go thru installing tcp (freePPP 2.5 or OpenTransport for these macs.)
Sorry If I'm not much help, but this Q did stay neglected for quite a while, and I felt I had to say something.
regards

Upgrade all classic network machines to MacOS 7.5.5 or 7.6.1 and Open Transport 1.1.2. Your machines will be more stable overall and your client program will work.

Thanks for answering.
I agree that 7.5.5 or 7.6.1 are far more stable, but there are other issues that stop me from being able to quickly upgrade 400 macs across a big university. That is why I am trying to make the client work on all the macs without any (major) system changes.
I am trying to find out some definite info if 1.2 sp3 works with classic networked macs or not. Any web address, ftp site or Email address as a pointer to good info would be very much appreciated. Thanks, once again, for your kind help.

Greetings,
School is running 1.2 and will for a while. There are 1500 PC's that are working lovely with what we have, and I can not do to many modifications in order for macs to work. And I am not sure about mixing clients, and running a few different clients on the macs, for instance different ones for OT and non-OT mac's and so forth...I would like to be able to make the current installer (1.2 sp3) work for all the macs.
Thanks for all your help. Cheers,
Nikola
