I would like to know if anyone in net land has successfully
Integrated a TCP/IP stack ( e.g. Trumpet ) with Lantastic 6.0..
I've seen it done before, but the details escape me.. If anyone can
help please , reply ..
My home page has a section I wrote on doing just that... it may help you.

Hope this helps.
I just received a mailer from Artisoft offering a new release of
their classic peer-to-peer networking product, Lantastic. This release
adds support for tcp/ip via a shared modem (ppp to sprynet or whatever)
and includes licensed copies of Netscape for use over the LAN. A full
tcp/ip stack is included as well.
There is some mention of mail, but no detailed explanation of whether or
not they have enhanced their somewhat limited LAN email to be compatible
with SMTP and/or POP3, or whether there is or will be a mailserver which
can be run with this product.
Ideally, I would like to use Eudora on each machine on the LAN and
address a local SMTP/POP3 server which would receive SMTP from a local
internet service provider.
My past experience with lantastic has been very good for file and
printer sharing. Once set up, the product has been exceptionally stable
and easy for the small office without a full-time professional computer
guru to maintain.
I would appreciate any thoughts on this product and how it
might be used to connect a small office / home office workgroup to the
internet with email functionality for several users as described.
