    Hi,

    I'm running system 7.5.5 with the mini vMac emulator. The rom I'm using allows for 4mb of ram.

    I have an iMac getting it's airport connection from an airport express.

    The mini vMac is running on the imac. I was curious to know if I can get system 7.5.5 online by having the imac share its connection with the emulator. Is this possible?

    I have an email / browser / ftp package courtesy of Jag's House, but no matter how much I fiddle with the MacTCP settings, I can't seem to get online.

    It's not a problem with 7.5.5, it's a missing feature of Mini vMac: networking is not emulated.

    Hmm, I see. Thanks, I exhausted all troubleshooting techniques, so I'm just as satisfied to know that it can't be done in emulation.
