AppleTalk --> Linux --> Win9x

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.

Yes, all of these things can be done without too much trouble under Linux.  Here are the main things you want to check out:


IP Masquerading - lets your Linux box server as a router for machines on a "pretend" IP network -- usually 10.0.0.0 -- using a single internet-connected address.  There's a detailed document at:
      http://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/howto/mini/IP-Masquerade


netatalk - AppleTalk file and print client and server for Linux.  Docs and downloads at:

http://www.umich.edu/~rsug/netatalk/


Samba - Win95/98/NT file and print sharing client and server for Linux.  Documents, FAQs and downloads at:

http://us1.samba.org/samba/samba.html

good luck, and please comment on this question if you need any more help.

Thanks Mart, I'm not actually rejecting your answer. I just won't get a chance to try everything for a couple weeks. Sorry for the delay in responding - I didn't get emailed by exp-exch.  :(
