MAC Linux, Leoarndo <-> Mac Leonardo?

Post by Oliver Scha » Thu, 18 Sep 1997 04:00:00


I am new to Linux and MACs but I am Unix-expert. I have to find a solution
for the following network-structure:

   +A---------+             +B----------+     +C------------+
   | MAC with |    ISDN     | Mac with  <=====> SUN-Server  |
   | ISDN Leo |  <--------> | Linux and |     | with 600 GB |
   | nardo    |   Leonardo  | Leonardo  |     | database-   |
   +----------+             +-----------+     | system (HSM)|
   This is a                                  This part is easy
   common                   Is this part
   standard                 possible?
                 This is my

The idea is to feed computer B from C with some files, which have to been
send using Leonardo-ISDN to A. Feeding B from C can be done using NFS/FTP
and Linux. Well, but is the last part, the ISDN-Leonardo-connection

As I am start from Zero, I am able to buy any specific MAC-modell I need.

Any comments welcome,

Thanks, Oliver


1. Linux <--> Mac Best way to mount NFS volume on a Mac or....?

I have an ethernet network, a Netware 3.12 file server and a mixture of
Linux, Mac and DOS/Windows PC's.  

My most urgent need is simple "drag & drop" file sharing between the Mac
and the Linux box to exchange HTML and misc. graphics files for Web
authoring.  We primarily use the Mac because the name-space matches the
Linux name space more closely.

Is the best way to mount a Linux NFS file system on a Mac?  

I am also open to the possibility of mounting the Netware server as an
NFS volume on the Linux box w/ Netware NFS and exchanging files that way,
but will I get stuck with an 8.3 name-space?  The doc's I saw weren't
clear but implied this limitation....

And, anybody have any suggestions for better ways to convert Mac text
files to Linux text files (the ^M, CR/LF thing..)?  I heve yet to see an
elegant solution...
