Re: A2SERVER - fully functional netatalk

Yeah, no :( I mean, I'm not in the US and I'm not going to pay +100$ for an AsantéTalk adapter... (OR AM I?!) See, the thing is, even if I had that LocalTalk to Ethernet bridge adapter, I'd still not be able to use it, unless it comes with 800KB System 7 boot disk and whatever software required to ...

Re: A2SERVER - fully functional netatalk

EDIT: I just received a reply from Ivan Drucker (a.k.a. IvanX), the former Apple Software Engineer who put together A2SERVER, and unfortunately, he wrote that it won't work due to generic RS-232 adapters not being fully compatible with LocalTalk. I'm not sure why this would be, but to him, Apple us...

Re: A2SERVER - fully functional netatalk

I don’t know hardware-wise as I don’t understand how your selfmade LocalTalk adapter works (but I will keep that option at the back of my mind in case my AsantéTalk dies before the LaserWriter 4/600 PS). But according to http://www.knubbelmac.de/themen/afp-server-vergleich.html (in German, but the c...

Re: A2SERVER - fully functional netatalk

In order to be able to install A2SERVER, make sure you use an older version of Raspbian that is based on Debian 8 Jessie (Debian 9 Stretch might also work, not sure though). According to https://github.com/RasppleII/a2server/commit/a615ed1808111714ec40ded383704dc6509d185a Ivan Drucker has added exp...

Re: A2SERVER - fully functional netatalk

I'm reading on here that apparently A2SERVER works in LocalTalk? Are you guys sure about that? Everywhere else on the web, I read that it only works thru IP. I'm wondering, because I've already got a RPi and on Monday, I ordered a DB-9 to USB (RS232) adapter, plus I already had a DB-9 female to fem...

Re: afpfs-ng-OSX – connect to Classic MacOS via AFP2

Sort of a side note, but I just thought of another potential FUSE project: implementing AppleShare IP so that people can mount an AppleShare 2 file share as a virtual disk on modern OSes. The back end's already done, after all. And at some point, I want to get back to MFS and HFS and get them worki...

Hi yannis, Nice to see some interest in this project after three years. I have to admit that I didn’t use afpfs-ng-OSX for quite a while, though. That is, I never installed it on my present Catalina machine. Also, I have never uploaded the macbinary conversion stuff to github as I didn’t continue to...

Too bad the days of Hackintosh computers are numbered. But it will take some time until Apple will stop releasing new macOS versions for intel chips. So at least I will be able to use my 2018 Hackintosh for several more years.
