The Question is:
We have continued to use PCSA MAC even though support has been discontinued.
All has been well until OS9. PCSA MAC 1.3 (the last released version i
beleive) does not work.
What are my options for a MAC accessable server software? Is there any 3rd
party OpenVMS MAC server software? Do I have to now run another operating
system to support the MACS? We are using VMS for high availibility, disk
shadowing, security , Y2k, no
viruses, batch facilities, backup integrity.... And would like to avoid a
4th operating system with the unavoidable learning curves. The data is also
shared with our WIN NT workstations in a publishing enviorment (50 - 200 Meg
What are my options?
The Answer is :
Support for PATHWORKS for Macintosh is/was available via Software Resources
International S.A. (SRI) of Geneva, Switzerland, including the availability of
the 1.3A release of PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Macintosh).
Dave by Thursby Software is a potential option.
On the Macintosh, any available NFS- or SMB-capable client access would be
another potential option.
The OpenVMS Wizard would recommend checking with a Macintosh Wizard or with
the Apple website search engines for assistance. Also see:
The OpenVMS Wizard is not familiar with the current status of the compatibility
of 1.3A with Macintosh OS 9.
