Re: [NTLK] OK, so I'm about to make the leap to OSX

In OS X you can use NewTen with a serial adapter or Escale with
appletalk or TCP/IP. escale is challenging to connect for some folks
but does work.
I think that Escale works well with a router and switcher, but I think
that some folks have had success with direct connection


Personally I prefer NCU though it does require either classic or an OS
9 machine on the network.
