For complete information, please see the documents included with this software. OT 1.1.2 consists of 4 disks: Name as Posted Actual Disk Name ------------------------------------------ OT 1.1.2-1of4.sea Install 1 OT 1.1.2-2of4.sea Install 2 OT 1.1.2-3of4.sea Install 3 OT 1.1.2-4of4.sea Install 4 This software is available in two formats (disk images and "Net Install"): 1. Four self-extracting archives of Disk Copy 1440K disk images. To use, download, double-click the downloaded file (this decompresses it), and use Disk Copy to create the disks. Disk Copy can be found in the Utilities folder posted here. 2. A complete Open Transport 1.1.2 "Net Install", which includes all software from all four Open Transport 1.1.2 disk images. This posting is provided as a convenience for those customers who: - want to download just one file. - want a pre-configured "Net Install" to place on their hard drive or on a server. ********************************************************* PLEASE NOTE: You do not need to download the "Net Install" if you have already downloaded the four separate disk images of Open Transport 1.1.2. ********************************************************* From the Read Me included with this software: What's new in Open Transport 1.1.2 - general - Fixes a performance problem which only affects Print Server Developers using native PAP. - Introduces a change to TCP that should provide a minor increase in Web servers reusing TCP connections. Open Transport will now unbind while the 2 minute disconnect timer is expiring. - Fixes a problem with the Open Transport serial STREAMS module that could cause a crash. The crash could result if the modem was turned off, hung, or unresponsive while a connection was attempted with OT/PPP. - Fixes a problem where disconnecting with MacPPP 2.5.1 could cause a crash if QuickTime Conferencing was running and waiting for connections. - Includes minor modifications to improve performance, compatibility and reliability. System requirements Open Transport is designed to work on Mac OS-compatible computers with a Motorola 68030 or 68040 family microprocessor, or a PowerPC microprocessor. Open Transport is supported on system software versions 7.1, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.5.3, 7.5.5 or later. System software version 7.5.3 or later is recommended. No other system software versions are supported. Open Transport 1.1.2 can be used on the Performa and Power Macintosh 52xx, 53xx, 62xx and 63xx product lines. When you install OT1.1.2 on a 52xx, 53xx, 62xx and 63xx model you may get a dialog box indicating a hardware issue was detected. If this alert is displayed, Open Transport cannot be installed or loaded until the Cache/ROM DIMM is replaced. Your computer will continue to run classic networking. The required repairs are covered under the Apple repair extension program. Please contact an Apple-authorized service provider to have your computer repaired. Open Transport requires a minimum of 5 MB of RAM (68030 or 68040 computers) or 8 MB of RAM (PowerPC-based computers). Open Transport memory requirements are based on total system memory including virtual memory, minus the size of any RAM disk and disk cache you're using. Network interface options Open Transport 1.1.2 supports PCI bus, NuBus, communications slot, and PC Card network interface cards, as well as built-in LocalTalk, Ethernet, and Token Ring network adapters. For supported computers without expansion options, Open Transport 1.1.2 also supports a SCSI-attached network adapter. Third party network interface options available for Open Transport include Fast Ethernet, ATM, and FDDI. Before you install Open Transport 1.1.2 - Read the section "Known limitations and other issues" below to make sure Open Transport 1.1.2 will work on your computer. - Make backup copies of the software and documents on your hard disk (especially your System Folder) before installing this software. - For best results, you should install Open Transport 1.1.2 over Open Transport 1.1 or Open Transport 1.1.1, but not over any beta version of Open Transport. - Turn on only those extensions installed with your system software. (Open the Extensions Manager control panel and select System 7.5.3 or 7.5.5 from the Sets pop-up menu, then restart your computer.) Do not turn off all extensions before installing Open Transport. - Performa and Power Macintosh 52xx, 53xx, 62xx and 63xx models using System 7.5.3 or later can install Open Transport 1.1.2 directly. Other supported systems must install Open Transport 1.1 or have Open Transport 1.1.1 on system software version 7.1, 7.1.1, 7.1.2 , 7.5.3, or 7.5.5 before updating to Open Transport 1.1.2. - If you use SLIP or PPP software to access the Internet, verify that your SLIP or PPP software is compatible with Open Transport. See the section under "Dialup network connectivity - TCP/IP." - When Open Transport is installed, the Network control panel is replaced by the AppleTalk configuration utility program. The MacTCP control panel is replaced by the TCP/IP configuration utility program. Both AppleTalk and TCP/IP are located in the Control Panels folder. For simplicity and consistency, user documentation generally refers to AppleTalk and TCP/IP as "control panels" even though technically they are utility programs. - You should download a copy of System 7.5 Update 2.0 to your hard disk or have a copy of the Open Transport 1.1 retail package or Open Transport 1.1.1 Internet GM package available. This will give you the software to reinstall Open Transport 1.1 or Open Transport 1.1.1 in case you decide to remove Open Transport 1.1.2.
