Networking has never been one of my problems. But this one has me stumped. Got a crossover cable connecting a 3400c and a Beige G3 ziffed to G4 400Mhz. Both running OS 9.1. Had few problems getting the connection without the error message of "Something is screwed up. Please check your connections and settings." Or something like that. Now, no error messages but nothing shows up in the chooser in either Mac. Bizarre thing is that Apple System Profiler tells me that TCP/IP is turned off. My experience has been that you choose a setting and close the box and if TCP/IP is off, it asks if you want TCP/IP activated. But how can you cause it to be activated if doesn't ask?
