I have recently aquired a PowerPC 8200/120 in our office. I am trying to integrate it into our NT network. I have setup the Services for Macintosh on the NT and tried to follow the proceedure for connecting the MAC. So far everytime I go to chooser and select aplletalk, it asks for the Server IP address, I enter it , and then it searches for a few minutes and comes back with Server not responding error. Can anyone help???

Did you install Services for Mac on a NT4 Server.

!!--> On the NT 4 server use FileManager to create volumes accessible by the Mac.

Then when you open the chooser it will show the nt server. and as soon as you log in to the server it will show the shared volumes.

It turned out that I had to set up a router on the NT and then a zone for the macintosh to see the NT server.

Setting up the router includes: using the router to seed the network, selecting the Network Range (which is arbitrary), and creating a Default Zone. After setting it up in on your NT box you need to go to you PowerPC and open you AppleTalk control panel and it should detect the Zone. Then you can go into your Chooser and select the volume (this assuming you've used the default volume).
