Remote Appletalk access on DR3?
|When I boot MkLinux DR3 on my PowerPC 604e/200, I noticed that along with all the other booting messages, there is a <CODE>Appletalk 0.17 for Linux NET3.035</CODE> message. I assume this means that there is some kind of rudimentary Appletalk support in DR3. Is this correct? If so, is there some way I can access my DR3 box remotely from my Quadra 700 (running MacOS 7.6.1) via Telnet or otherwise over the Appletalk network they are connected by?
|Answer: Appletalk is fully supported, but only over an ethernet
network. Localtalk support (Appletalk via serial port) is extremely
processor intensive and would require substantial rewriting of the
serial drivers. As such, no free OS for the Mac supports localtalk.
(except maybe OSes running on top of MacOS).
