Thursby Software Systems has released an incremental update to DAVE, its software to enable Macintoshes and PCs to communicate with each other.

With DAVE, Macs can talk to PCs or other Macs directly through TCP/IP, rather than using AppleTalk. Macs can use shared PC hard drives and PostScript printers on a Microsoft network, and PC users can do the same. Macs can view network devices through the Chooser, and PCs can see Macs running DAVE via their Network Neighborhood icon.

The new version of DAVE, 2.5.2, incorporates the following changes:
Keychain Support
Easy-to-use setup assistant
Improved DHCP handling
Virtually automatic setup on corporate networks
New installer to better support non-English systems

serial code: tfmi-arbm-dfie-mmbo-e7rh
Text file containing code included.

Mediafire Link
(4.88MB compressed)

Available separately: version 3.x, version 4.x

Architecture: 68k PPC

System requirements call for a 68030 or better-equipped Mac;
Mac OS 7.6 through 9.0; 16 MB RAM;
Open Transport 1.1.1 or later; and any hardware that may be necessary to run TCP/IP.

Still works this very day and helps me to connect my MacOS 8.1 system all the way to resources hosted on a Windows 10 machine Wink
