AppleTalk --> Linux --> Win9x
Posted on 1999-01-15
I need to set up a friends network (actually 2 separate networks, 1 of MAC's and 1 of PC's on a common Ethernet hub but not yet talking to each other). I need to be able to backup MAC files on a Win 98 PC which has a JAZ drive as well as PC files of course. Likewise, I want the MAC's to be able to see the PC's (because most MAC programs can open up PC files, like Word, Excel, Filemaker Pro etc.) I also need to be able to access the Internet (WWW and mail) from any of the computers, but only using one or two Email accounts. Although, initially this will be done though a 56k modem, we intend to start using 64k ISDN soon . I believe I can do all this with a Linux box running as a proxy server and Appletalk gateway, but how? No need to post answer here, just the URL, thanks.
