Currently I have 150 systems on my network.40 of those systems are Macintosh. I am trying to find a solution to segment the appletalk protocol and still have the Macintoshs be able to access files and print from my NT/2000 servers.
I have already tried ExtremeZ-ip and dave client but they still fail at minimizing appletalk on the network.

What avalible solutions does anyone have that I can try?

I have 5 NT\2000 servers the macs access.



Thx

I would add a second NIC on your server and have it dedicated for appletalk only.

I hope this helps !

chadoz,

Are these MACs on the same network segment now, and your just trying to limit its damage on network performance? If so, would a small router be in the budget to put in the path between the Macs and the rest of the network? This would increase the network proformance, since the constant broadcasts given by Appletalk would be stopped at the router, but of course still allow the Macs to communicate with the rest of the network. Just an idea...

It sounds like you only want the appletalk protocol on one segment , but you want that segment able to talk with another segment using TCP/IP?  If that's right , the only way I know how is with a router.  It will route the TCP/IP packets but not the Appletalk.  Any device you need will have to be layer 3 so it will need a router.  ofcourse, you could use a server as the router.  It will only route the TCP/IP traffic, I don't recommend that, but if money is very tight then you really have no choice.
