Sharing files with older Macs System
A Dutch website known as System 6 Heaven has created a page of tips for sharing things between older Macs and Macs running OS X. One of the little tidbits on the page explains how to enable AppleShare over AppleTalk, thereby allowing your System 6 Macs to see your OS X box directly on the network.

If you have some older machines that you'd like to network, check out the System 6 Heaven tips page for some good pointers.

Tunnel TCP over AppleTalk
Authored by: Anonymous on Dec 25, '01 04:06:40AM
MacIP can be used, via IPNetrouter, when there's no ethernet card about. I did this some years back with my trusty SE, worked fine. Even had EIMS running on it, and handling my SMTP needs. Only problem was when some dufus sent a beefy attachment. Watching it tunnel over MacIP was painful, to say the least. But it worked. Dunno offhand if IPNetShare (the X equivalent of IPNR) works with MacIP, but it might. If nothing else you can let an old Quadra play router between the ethernet and AppleTalk networks.
