Is the Basilisk GUI application the only way to create "hard drives" for use within Basilisk? I assume that volumes created with Sheepshaver GUI do not work with Basilisk, but I have not tested this.

Hello, I think there may be a typo that has been propagated from the original link below. most scripts I see start with #!/ rather than #/!

Color change woes returning from Hide when running as root

Hello, I am running Sheepshaver as root, spawned from a terminal script, so that I may use AppleTalk devices. Now, when I Hide Sheepshaver, and bring it back, the color issues return. I conclude that launching Sheepshaver from command line defaults to 64 bit mode. Is there an option I can add to com...

Got AppleTalk functionality!!!

Good news! Using the tap0 and IPNetRouterX software, I have been able to mount shared drives on the desktop, and actually see printers in the chooser. Very exciting! Now I just need to write a utility to fix the user on files in the Unix drive, and things will be pretty smooth going. Yay! Thanks eve...

No, I can't seem to get the drive to mount unless I do the IPNetRouter tap0 Bridge procedure.

Is there somewhere you can point me for directions on this?

My Sheepshaver prefs file would have to be changed from tap0 back to slirp for this?

AppleTalk sharing with Sheepshaver

It appears that I can't get the server to mount unless I am running Sheepshaver as root.
Is this the case?

Yes, you are right. the document I saved is owned by root, and I could open it, but not save changes.

Successfully mounted drive on OS 9 server with Sheepshaver. Astonishing.

Do I always have to run Sheepshaver as root for this to work? Why do I have to run as root?
What do I need to be careful of? Ronald warned about using the Unix drive as root. Can someone explain?

Thanks!

Sheepshaver launcher app?

In the docs about AppleTalk for Sheepshaver I see reference for a Shaeepshaver_launcher_app.
I can't find one though. link anyone?
I thought I would try it since I cannot seem to launch Sheepshaver from the terminal.

Sheepshaver window color changes after Hide

Hi - Noticing a strange window color change in Sheepshaver under these conditions: Hide Sheepshaver. Either by using Mac OS X menu or alt-click elsewhere. Return to Sheepshaver. After a moment, the window gets a bright-blue overcast. Dragging mouse around the screen will update small bits of it, as ...

Intercepting the Command key makes sense for Command Q - Quit. I can see why it works the way it does, but my friend uses Command-H all the time to jump around between open apps. Is it possible to pass other Command key combo's along to the parent OS? The only application I know of that may suffer i...

Basilisk II - Command-H (Hide Basillisk) menu item

The Command-H menu item (Hide Basilisk) functions if you access it in the OS X menu, but it does not function when pressing Command H on the keyboard. It seems like it should work, since it is listed in the menu as a key equivalent.

Thanks,

Hi, @ Cat_7 I have entered the IP address of the printer into the Desktop Printer utility. I press the verify button and it spends a long while looking, and then says it cannot verify. My current work around is to print to pdf, and copy file to unix drive. Hoping for a better solution. Thanks! Anne

The absolute most import issue is to get the LaserWriter 16/600 working with System 7.5.5. My friend has software that runs only on 7, and needs to be able to use his LaserWriter. I was using iCab to experiment to see if I could get a Network connection, but internet is not as important. Thanks, anne

Related to Networking problems is that I can't see the LaserWriter in the chooser.
