Description

This article is from the MachTen & CodeBuilder FAQ, by Jaime Julca jjulca@tenon.com with numerous contributions by others.

33 What networking support does MachTen provide?

MachTen includes a full TCP suite of protocols, including telnet, smtp and
ftp. In addition, it includes all the standard UNIX communications, such as
the Berkeley r-series and both client and server NFS. MachTen also includes
domain name service (DNS), IP forwarding, and a built-in Web server that
supports multihoming. MachTen works over LocalTalk, ethernet and TokenTalk,
and can route between these networks.

For serial line connectivity, tip, cu, UUCP, SLIP and PPP are provided.
MachTen makes use of the serial port portion of the Macintosh Communications
Toolbox (CTB) if installed; otherwise, it controls the serial ports
directly.

Using AppleTalk Remote, it is possible to dial into your AppleTalk
environment and then use MachTen TCP communications across your AppleTalk
networks.
