Send Article to a Friend

Open Transport 1.0.7 -- Last week, Apple released a patch that updates Open Transport 1.0.6 to 1.0.7. Version 1.0.7 can only be used on the Power Macs 7200, 7500, 8500, and 9500, and won't work on other Power Macs or on releases of Open Transport other than 1.0.6. This release includes support for networks with more than 256 AppleTalk zones, as well as fixes for SLIP/PPP users. Please see the ReadMe file for details on how to use the fix; if you bought a 9500 and have an earlier version of Open Transport, call Apple at 800/769-2775, ext. 5617, to receive an update.
