We had a power outage recently, since then I have not been able to log on. I get a message: appleshare system error at the startup. Also can not open any of the network file: TCP, appletalk, and open trans port will npt load.

I think you should check your HD with a tool (Norton, ...) and reinstall your OS. I think something had been damaged in your system files.

Re-Installation seems kinda drastic. Trash the AppleShare prep file first.

If other macs are having the same problem then the problem is more than likely on the server side

What in your extentions did you change?

1. Remove the preferences folder from the System folder
2. Restart computer (make sure you are connected to the network)
3. The computer should start up without a problem
4. Change the settings in Chooser (appletalk on). Appletalk (from printerport to ethernet)
5. If this does not solve your problem. Reset the hub and router you are connected to
6. or change the port that your computer connects to.
7. Make sure the routers loaded the appletalk service/protocol

I think you are right about the server. I did manage to get my netscape working again but not my mail We are using Microsoft Mail. I understand out windoze server is running an older version of Nt so when there is an overload of use it pushes the appletalk out. Is this true or bull.  The mail just hangs when loading.
