AppleTalk Networking with GSport

Jul 23, 2014 @ 9:15 pm - 9:45 pm

Presented by Peter Neubauer. The Apple IIgs shipped with a fantastic but often overlooked feature — AppleTalk networking. AppleTalk is a low-cost, easy-to-maintain network technology that enables network booting, file sharing, and printer sharing between your Apple IIgs, Workstation Card equipped Apple IIe, and classic Macintosh machines.

As of March 2014, GSport is the first modern emulator with support for AppleTalk. Now, you can just “drag and drop” files between your machines without thinking about disk images, FTP, or serial cables. You can develop new software with an emulator and quickly test on real hardware. You don’t need to think much about version control. Rather, you can update the file once on your file server, and all of your emulated and real machines have the new file. AppleTalk is a powerful and useful feature.
I’ll show you how to setup and use AppleTalk networking with GSport.
