Installation and Operation Manual
The Owner’s Handbook for the Okidata Okitel 9600 Modem is the 137 page Installation and Operation Manual, #59242801. Also included is the Product Update guide for the 38,400 bps upgrade.
PacerTerm is a communications application that uses the Macintosh Communications Toolbox. The Communications Toolbox manages three communication functions: Terminal Emulation, Host System Connection, and File Transfer. PacerTerm adds additional features, such as MiniWindows, scrollback area, SoftKeys and Keymappings. In addition, PacerTerm has a wide range of tools to provide multiple connectivity options and a HyperTalk based scripting language.
Package includes two manuals, User’s Guide and PacerScript Language Guide, 17 full size booklets, Quick Reference Card, Communication Tools scripting Interface Reference, and software on three 3.5″ floppy disks. System Requirements: Macintosh Plus or newer, System 6.0.4 or later, 2 MB Ram and a hard drive.
I have two of these packages that clearly have never been used, but the boxes were open when they came to me. Currently, there is only one set of software, so available with or without the original disks.
Use these RJ-11 cables for your telephone or modem. They are also used for AppleTalk networking with the PhoneNet connectors.
Share your files or network your printer
PhoneNet replaced Apple’s LocalTalk for AppleTalk networking. PhoneNet adapters plug into to 8 pin (MiniDin) serial port of the Apple IIGS and Macintosh Plus to the first G3’s. Networking is done through phones lines with the standard phone RJ11 plug.
There is one NEW adapter available from FastNet – termination is enabled with a switch on the side. There is an assortment of used adapters, most are quantities of one and two. All will work together on the same chain. Apple, Digicard, Farallon, Farallon PhoneNet Plus, Focus TurboNet ST, Power User, Belkin. If you have a preference, let me know and I’ll see if it’s still available.
Lines and adapters are daisy chained throughout the network. Terminators are used at both ends of the chain. I currently do not enough terminators for each one, so they are sold separately.

This is from the System 6.0.7/7.0 days and meant to run on a Macintosh Server. Clients would be Macintosh or DOS 5.0/Windows 3.1.
Macintosh, DOS and OS/2
Quickmail is a software system that lets you send and receive messages to and from other people, both inside and outside your computer network.

Asante & DaynaPORT
These SCSi to Ethernet adapters provide a way to connect a Macintosh without an Ethernet port to a network using the computer’s SCSI port. These are used for the early Mac’s without a built in ethernet port such as compact Macs, LC family, Macintosh II family, Duo Docking stations and Powerbooks that have a SCSI port.
All tested and successfully networked an LCIII and a Power Mac 7300 using AppleTalk over EtherTalk. There are a ton of sites outlining what you need to do to use these, please do your own research.

33.6 Macintosh Faxmodem
Supra Express 33.6e Fax Modem. Made for the Macintosh and offers 33,600 bps Data and 14,400 bps Fax. Modem eliminates the need for an external power supply with an integrated ADB connector on the modem cable to receive power. The ADB passthrough means that you can still plug in your keyboard and mouse. This works similarly to the small USB hard drives that have a USB Y cable – One end plugs into the device, one end receives power from the computer port and one end transmits data to an from the computer.
Package includes box, modem with double duty cable and advertisements of the day. If I come across the manual or software, they will be added and page updated. Modem has been tested to power on, but I do not have telephone service capable of dial-up. The modem (serial) cable (8 pin mini-din) connects to the round modem port on your Mac (Plus through Beige G3) or IIGS and the power end requires an ADB port, used for external keyboards, mice and trackballs. Fortunately all of those computers have that too. Tested to power on only as I don’t have a telephone service capable of dial-up.
