One of my retro machines is a Mac Classic with 4 Meg DRAM, 40Meg HD, and Asante SCSI EN/SC Adapter. I used to own an SE that I bought new. On ebay the SE seems to command a high price because of the signatures inside the case. So I settled for a Classic.
I have installed the webkit images and I can't get fetch or internews to work outside of my intranet. I can use fetch to connect to a a PC FTP server on my intranet. If I use mactcp ping I can ping the comcast DNS machines, ftp.apple.com, news.comcast.net. etc. I tried making the classic be a DMZ in my linksys router setup but that didn't help either. Maybe these applications are just too old. Usually if ping works and there isn't a port issue, things will work.
I'm running system 6.07. and I used the 1.4.5 network installer.
