Mac/Unix shell needed (no, I dont have a mac...)

Post by Jeff Kram » Thu, 03 Feb 1994 13:43:18

I'm looking for a mac/unix shell (A unix shell for the mac)  It's not for
me, I have a real computer (:-)), it's for this french exchange student guy,
any help would be greatly appreciated, please e-mail me, I'll probably never
find my way back here... :-)

We're looking for input on a decent Mac with ethernet to Unix file transfer
utility.  At present we're using the gatorbox, but the Appletalk speed is
clearly unsuited for our pruposes, that is transferring large sounds files
from the Mac to our Unix servers.  We have some Macs with Ethernet Cards,
and have tried uShare and InterCon's Mac NFS.  A quick summary of these two:

uShare runs on the Sun 4, and fires up some atp daemons that allow the Macs
on Ethernet to mount Unix disks.  However, it seems pretty buggy, prone to
crash and isn't all that easy to configure or use. But it's just one piece
of costly software that runs on the Sun.  

Mac NFS lives on the mac, takes a bit of configuring to get running, but once
in place it seems to work.  However, it's over $200/pop, and that could get
pretty pricey, given the number of Mac at our site.  

Does anybody have any experience with these products or their competitors?

this is YOUR CHANCE to contribute your wisdom for the good of all.  Your
responses are very much appreciated.
