Apple Remote Access Personal Server for Macintosh is software that lets your Macintosh computer communicate with another Macintosh or an AppleTalk network over standard telephone lines.

Uploading this for historical reasons. Requires telephone access to an AppleTalk network.

Enclosed in a Stuffit 3.6 .sit archive, 3 x 800k Disk Copy 4.2 image files [from original source].

Architecture: 68k

Requires SSW 7.0 (7.1 is recommended) or later. 68k will run OK on PPC. Untested by me under emulation.

This is actually an incredibly useful application. You can use this with a null modem cable and Basilisk II to surf the net on your Macintosh system through Basilisk II.

@soudesune: No. It means that I have not installed this onto an emulator to test its usability. I'm sure there is a good chance that it could install onto emulator, but its like bertyboy says and would most likely be a waste of time. This requires an AppleTalk network via a dial-up (Hayes compatible) modem connection and would be unlikely to work effectively via an emulator. - Not to say that I am correct in this assumption here. Only, I have not used this in an emulator and am unlikely to.

Of the emulators I know of, the Windows port of Basilisk II by "Lauri Pesonen" would be the most likely candidate to actually work with this software. However, as mentioned before: "Untested by me".

How would you test it under emulation ? How would you use it under emulation ?

You'd need another AppleTalk Mac to use Remote Access to dial up your emulated Mac's modem.
