I want to network an Imac to a PC. It has a ethernet connector, Mac OS9 installed, and Virtual PC3, with Windows 95. So far I cannot get it to recognize the network. I have it cabled to a hub with two other PCs connected on the network. The light on the hub shows connection but is not recognized by the Imac or the PCs. What do I need to do?

You need either Dave for Mac or PCMacLAN for windows. The two platforms speak different languages on the network, you need a "translator". Both those programs are available from www.versiontracker.com....You CAN do it with VPC but its a big pain because youre 1) dealing with windows and 2) dealing with windows in emulation. If you were using OS X it would recognize the PC network without extra software.

Thanks, I did not follow through with the software at the price they want, I fell it would be cheaper do something else. That is a problem when two different OS are involved. I have heard tha MAC is so much better for graphics, etc, but I am not so sure. Anyway thank you......g

It can be done, but you have to realize youre using old software at this point. OS X would be a different story. Im not sure if windows 95 supports Services for Macintosh but that's another option. Seems to cause more problems than its worth though. Check www.macwindows.com to see if they have any ideas.
