Under that agreement, Apple also licensed the source code for AppleTalk
protocols to IBM so that Mac, OS/2 and DOS-based PCs can share files, query corporate databases and access a broad range of communications services through a common OS/2 server.
The benefits of this seamlessly integrated environment include the consistent Macintosh user interface, AppleTalk
network transparency and services, VAX/VMS computing power, and enterprise-wide DECnet/OSI networking capability.
I'd like to briefly examine what I believe are currently the most popular technological contenders for Macintosh networking in educational institutions: LocalTalk/PhoneNet or Ethernet for physical connection and signal transmission; and AppleTalk
or TCP/IP as network protocols.
Alan Oppenheimer, co-creator of the AppleTalk
Network System and founder and president of Open Door Networks, will kick off MacIT with a session entitled "A History of Macintosh Networking - Lessons Learned, Future Impact," that will chronicle the networking history of the Mac and examine its present day implementation in the modern Macintosh.
It enables Mac OS 9 clients to print up to 3X faster than via AppleTalk
PAP or Apple Remote LPR.
Advanced printing system supports TCP/IP, AppleTalk
PAP, Postscript, and PDF, and includes extensive input & output options.
1, allowing them to maximize the use of digital media devices to both operating systems, while also sharing files and printers bi-directionally over AppleTalk
Attendees of the WildPackets trainings will learn to effectively design, implement, and troubleshoot OS X and AppleTalk
infrastructures by deciphering the protocol behaviors that underlie Apple network communications.
Open Door was founded in January, 1995 by Alan Oppenheimer, co-creator of the AppleTalk
network system and co-author of "Inside AppleTalk
By integrating advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching including IP, IPX, AppleTalk
, OSPF, BGP4, multicast and wire-speed input/output Access Control Lists in a compact form factor with hot-swappable power supplies and mini-GBIC interfaces, the FastIron 4802 heralds a new category of stackable switches for enterprises and service providers that combine serviceability and scalability of high-end modular switches with the density and price/performance of stackable switches.
In addition, it supports the TCP/IP, NetBEUI, NetWare, and AppleTalk
