Mac to NT networking
Posted on 1998-07-24
I have NT 4.0 sp3 currently with dial up and Macintosh services installed. I just got an new Mac G3 with os 8.1 and a built in ethernet card. I have Nt and the Mac both plugged into an 8 port hub.
It is important to me that I continue to have dial up. I know very little about the Mac and even less about Networking. I dont know much about IP's, workgroups etc. I did however have someone set up the IP in Nt for me.
I need this pretty well mapped out for me. I think I need Apple talk because I need deparately to access my printers through NT. I also need file exchange.
So far I have gotten TCP/IP and Apple talk pointing to ethernet. I dont know what a zone is but there isnt one. I get pretty mixed up when it comes to what to name what on both side. I also have dial up here. I seem to lose that if I try to set up the ethernet.
On the nt side I think everything looks right but nothing is talking to each other. THe adapter is a DEC PCI Fast Ethernet DECchip 21140.
This is about all the info I can think of to give.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
