Setup Open Transport or MacTCP? Printable View Return to List
Setting up Open Transport or MacTCP

Apple has developed two different TCPIP software programs. The newest package is termed Open Transport or just TCP/IP (preinstalled on Systems 7.5.3 and higher). MacTCP or Classic Networking is the older package that has always been available from Apple. You can only use one of these packages at any given time (if installed, the Network Software Selector can change between these two programs). If you are using Open Transport, it is strongly suggested that you use version 1.1 or higher (to find the version, open TCP/IP, click File and then Get Info). Proceed to the setup instructions for the software application you are using:

  1. Setting Up Open Transport (TCP/IP)- skip if using MacTCP:

    1. Click the Rainbow Apple, then Control Panels and select TCP/IP.
    2. Enter the following settings for TCP/IP:
      Connect Via: Your Dialer Name
      Configure: Using PPP Server (if using v1.0 of TCP/IP, use bootp but v1.1 is strongly recommended).
      Starting Domain: IBM.NET
      Name Servers: Your DNS Servers (The default Internet name servers are 165.87.13.129 and 165.87.201.244. Contact your SA if you are a business Intranet user).
      IP Address, Subnet Mask, Router Address, Ending Domain and Search Domains should be blank or supplied by server.
    3. Close out TCP/IP and restart your machine.

  2. Setting Up MacTCP (Classic Networking)- skip if using Open Transport:

    1. Click the Rainbow Apple, then Control Panels and select MacTCP.
    2. Highlight your dialer name (i.e. PPP) and click More...
    3. Enter in the following information:
      Obtain Address: Server
      Class: B
      Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 (To modify drag the bar)
      Domain: ibm.net
      IP address: Your DNS Servers (The default Internet name servers are 165.87.13.129 and 165.87.201.244. Contact your SA if you are a business Intranet user).
      Leave the rest of the settings at their default values.
    4. Click OK and restart your machine.
    5. Leave the rest of the settings at their default values.
