Appletalk on Windows NT 4.0

By Ryan Burbidge ·
Is there any difference between the Appletalk protocol on Windows NT 4.0 Workstation and the Services for Macintosh on Windows NT 4.0 Server.

The reason I ask is that I am currently building a duplicate of one of our servers which acts as a router, the only difference is the OS which I want to be Windows NT Server.
I have tried adding Appletalk as a protocol on NT Server however there is no option to do so, as a result I have added SFM.

Thankyou in advance for any assistance provided.

Yes, Services for Macintosh will allow your NT4 server to be accessed by (and used as a server for) Macintosh clients. Installing this will add two services (File Server for Macintosh, and Print Server Macintosh) to your Services menu.

They are different...Appletalk is simply a protocol like TCP/IP or IPX. The services allow the machine to handle server duties (file/print etc) for the Macintosh. You don't have to use Appletalk to communicate with a Mac (they ususally use TCP/IP now as well...just like most Netware boxes use TCP/IP over IPX/SPX)...but you do need to have SFM.

Take a look at this site:

It's the best I know of for networking and cross platform integration between Macs and Windows.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
