I had a MacSE back in the day but back then I got online with a modem, and PPP. Now I want to integrate it into my LAN. I have an Asanté Micro AsantePrint and have used it to hook the device in, and I've enabled AppleTalk, but...
a) Although I have a PowerMac 7100 with file sharing enabled over the network, the Mac SE doesn't see it in AppleShare in the Chooser; and
b) I can't seem to get a valid IP address farmed out to the Mac SE. It's been a long time since I futzed with MacTCP control panel, and when I last did so it was for an LC that had an ethernet card in it.
Other relevant info: the serial port I'm using is the Printer Port. I don't see anywhere in the SE System 6 environment where I tell it that's the serial port for AppleTalk to use. Should I move it to the Modem Port, perhaps?
The router: I have a 'WallStreet' PowerBook on the network and I booted it into MacOS 9 and enabled AppleTalk over Ethernet and yep, I see the 7100 when I go to AppleShare. So the router isn't blocking the packets or anything like that.
