Hi all,

Following is a brief summary on my original request below:

> We are looking for a way to connect a LocalTalk network (MAC's) to an
> ethernet network which consists of a number of UNIX
> machines (SUN and SCO UNIX).
> The purpose is to receive and send mail between the MAC's and "the
> world", using one of the UNIX hosts as a mail gateway
> (Internet).
> My questions:
> 1) What do we need to get TCP/IP running between the two platforms?
> 2) What additional software do we need for the MAC's?
> Thanks in advance, I'll summarize.
> Koert Gielen

Most of the respondents suggested the next products:

1) Gatorbox or FastPath for the LocalTalk - Ethernet connection
   Installing Ethernet-cards in the MAC's (performance!!)
2) MacTCP
3) Eudora as Mail Package
4) POPD version 3 for the UNIX site.
