This is a little off topic, but the end goal is getting more systems hooked
to deschall, so hopefully that will coax an answer out of someone if there
is an answer at all. with that said....

I've got a couple macintosh systems here, but only one of them actually has
an ethernet card (and even the capability to HAVE an ethernet card.. we're
talking about pretty old boxen here.) but they are hooked to the in
house AppleTalk network.

Is there any freeware/shareware software that will let me do tcp/ip over
appletalk, and turn the one mac with an ethernet interface into a gateway
machine? I know there are rather pricey hardware solutions, and similarly
priced software from Apple, but the net community generally abhors a vacuum
and creates something small to do the trick in a pinch..

thanks,
