Perhaps this is not possible. I have a 68K Mac from 1993 called a Mac TV, an odd hybrid of a machine which combined an LC 550 with a cable-ready Sony television monitor. It runs on System 7.5.3 and with it I use an antique word processor that is simple and clean, with integrated outlining, called MindWrite It is vastly superior for my needs to any new program I can find, after searching for two years (including several old outlining programs that have been re-worked to operate on System 10 (see outliners.com). I use the 68K machine and this MindWrite software as a sort of typewriter, then email plain text documents to myself for formatting on an emac. I would like to know if I can connect these two machines together.
Here's what I think I know so far: I would need a SCSI Adapter (as described at http://www.atpm.com/network/setup/localtalk_ethernet.htm). It is supposed to connect to the old Mac's SCSI port which provides for a 10BaseT Ethernet and the author at atpm.com says it only works with certain old macs, though he specifically mentions the Mac TV. The emac has built-in 10/100BASE-T Ethernet (RJ-45 connector). I'm just reporting this information. I don't really understand what it all means.
It is my fervent hope that, on making such a connection and running the eMac under System 9, using file sharing and AppleTalk that I can get the machines to share files and even the System 7 Mindwrite Program.
Am I nuts?
