With over 25 years providing quality service in the Internet industry, Netwood Communications is one of the top service providers centered in one of the world’s largest metropolitan areas. It is not recommended to flirt with OpenTransport with one of these things. Try the “EtherTalk for Farallon Macintosh Adapters” and “EN Driver for Farallon Macintosh Adapters” along with “EtherTalk Update” choices for those looking to experiment with OpenTransport or for installing the software without the hardware detection process of the Installer. And now for the let-downs: It is not compatible with OpenTransport at all, except in AFP bridge mode without the EtherTalk Alternative or PB Adapter driver enabled. The driver situation is kind of wonky because it doesn’t play nice with other NIC drivers on the system. IrDA compatible device: the ReadMe says to use the EtherTalk Alternative driver which did work on the Printer Adapter (to a certain extent) but not with the Mac/PB adapter. There’s another one called the EtherWave Printer Adapter which is kind of the same thing, it has “Printer Compatibility Mode” pre-enabled but can do the same TCP routing.
Sometimes these are also called LocalTalk to Ethernet bridges, but the author prefers the title of AFP bridge because all but a few can only bridge AFP data (that is, AppleShare via the Chooser or other AppleTalk data, not TCP data like FTP or HTTP traffic). The second port allows traffic from one Ethernet interface to the other, while both are accessible at the same time to the computer using the serial interface. Select the either the Modem or the Printer port depending on which one is chosen. At the very least, it operates like a conventional LocalTalk to EtherTalk bridge but with two Ethernet jacks instead of the usual single port. According to research, just a single break because of buffering cuts the amount of video watch to 39 percent. The other worked (EtherWave Printer Adapter) perfectly fine. A generic straight Ethernet cable was used for this section, although a cross-over cable worked too.
There are about three models which fall under the classification of this section, all identified via part numbers, which is strange because the part numbers aren’t printed on the devices (at least the ones used didn’t). For software configuration, the Ethernet side gets configured as shown earlier in the AFP Ethernet Networks section, and the LocalTalk side is configured as shown in this section. One model that was procured for this section didn’t work on a IIci, neither under System 6, didn’t work on a 1400cs and had to be frequently power cycled. As it turns out, this is a rather peculiar adapter, in more ways than one. More information can be found with this PhoneNET manual for useful tips about setting up daisy-chain networks, proper termination at wall connectors, and more. Like the Ethernet based AFP networks, System 6 lacks any file sharing services and itself cannot be mounted on a client computer: it only has client access itself. These bridges allow LocalTalk-only machines to access Ethernet networks, but they only work with AFP over AppleTalk. Finally go into the MacTCP control panel (version 2.1 strongly suggested, version 2.0.6 for some reason didn’t work) and configure it like as shown earlier in the Apple Filing Protocol Ethernet Networks section for MacTCP.
PN842 is probably the most common and runs off a wall power adapter (2.5mm plug, 12V DC, 500 to 800mA, usual center terminal positive) and is one of the models used in this section. About OpenTransport: The ReadMe says that if one removes the “PB Adapter” extension from the Extensions folder, it will work. Bindings are configured between network adapter cards and protocols, 인터넷 (penzu.com) and between protocols and services. If your server speaks all linkback protocols, then even if the other server supports only one of them, the communication will be successful. A Ethernet cross-over cable is the proper cable to use with these boxes, although this is applicable to one model at hand for testing (Farallon iPrint LT). Example bridges include the Farallon iPrint LT, Asante AsanteTalk series, Dayna EtherPrint, and others. The limitation of course is the slow transfer rate of these units, because LocalTalk is capped at 230Kbps. Some users have noted that the AsanteTalk adapters can be somewhat quirky: try reading some official documentation on those. The iMac G3 and higher do not have serial mini-DIN 8 or DE-9 RS422 ports.
