It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

PowerTalk to Internet Gateway

Send Article to a Friend

PowerTalk to Internet Gateway -- Jim Gaynor <gaynor.4@osu.edu> tells us that StarNine has released an evaluation version of their PowerTalk to Internet gateway. I've played briefly with the shipping version, which works, although it currently isn't ideal for use with SLIP or PPP since it tries to dial out a bit too frequently. In addition, auto connects with InterSLIP often fail, so it can take a bit of work to get the gateway working via SLIP. Version 2.0, due out in the second quarter of 1994, will officially support SLIP connections.

You can try the unlimited-user, time-limited evaluation version all you want until 10-Mar-94, when it expires. Note that the gateway is over 1 MB in size. Also, with the order form available in the same directory as the evaluation version of the gateway, you can purchase the real version for $29 until 31-Mar-94. To use either gateway, you must have System 7 Pro.
