Guides on emulating older applications

Happy birthday FirstClass!
FirstClass was released first in 1990 and it's still alive!
It's is a client–server groupware, email, online conferencing, voice and fax services, and bulletin-board system. Firstclass is part of OpenText's Portfolio Group (Canadian company) and runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux platforms, for both client and server. iPhone and Android client applications are also available. According to the company, the product is used at over 3,000 organizations and has 9 million users worldwide.
The good news:
FirstClass Server and Client is free up to 5 users (admin included) and even free for small companies. No license file is needed. Nevertheless a license file can be bought from FirstClass resellers in your country, if you need more users. FirstClass resellers also offer server and client downloads.
The second good news:
FirstClass Server and Client can be installed on recent computers (Mac, Windows and Linux). Recent version: 16.200, released: 2020-03-31.
The third good news:
You can connect your classic Mac with your recent computer to exchange files and more - see the screenshots of a Macintosh SE/30 with Ethernet connecting to a recent Mac OS X. Using System 7.5.5 with OpenTransport 1.1.2.
FirstClass Server doesn't have a GUI so you have to install the fitting client on the same machine to configure the server.
Look at the FC OS_matrix.pdf files in manuals here to read the system requirements for each version.
Newer versions of FirstClass Client are multilingual, older versions were available in english, german and more languages (some are still available from wayback machine).
File names beginning with:
FCC means FirstClass Client
FCS means FirstClass Server
FCSC means FirstClass Server and Client

FirstClass is very easy to configure, when you only use it to exchange files and do some more things in your home-net. Old clients can't use all features of newer servers.
Old servers included an AppleTalk gateway, AppleTalk support was removed in version 10.
As far as I know, there was never a version 13, 14 and 15 of FirstClass., so the follower of version 12 was version 16.
FirstClass server can be installed on a virtual machine (i.e. VMware Fusion) so you need not alter the configs of your private computer.
When you install FirstClass Internet Services (included in some servers here) for using mail, FTP (file transfer), HTTP (Web pages), even for anonymous users and more to be available from Internet, you have to read the huge included admin help files inside the client.
And read this file in manuals here before: Internet_Services_config_SHORT.pdf
Before installing FirstClass Server on Mac OS X:
*Provide your Mac or VM machine with a fixed home-net IP address (i.e., ...)
In Mac OS X you MUST create a new user named "fcadmin" (long name "FirstClass Administrator"), give him administrator access to this Mac and log into Mac OS X as fcadmin.
Install FC server (and FC Internet services). If you don't know the answer of a question the installer asks you, type return. You can alter this later.
Install FirstClass Client. Log into the IP-adress you choosed before and
use "admin" as login and "admin" as password.
Long install docs in manuals here:
I installed FCSC_16_1_3516_fullinstall_OSX.dmg on VMware Fusion 10, using Mac OS X 10.11.6 El Capiitan (less Apple restrictions than newer OS X) and I can confirm it works, Internet Services (inluded) too.
I also can connect with iOS FirstClass mobile, but not with FirstClass GO, as it's too new (v16.200).
I recommend to look what is inside of this
file, even if you install a different version.
