    What kind of port is this? I thinks its a networking port but it does not look like Ethernet.
    What kind of cable does it use? Computer is Powermac 6100/60.

    It is ethernet, but it requires a transceiver(sp?) to use it with a standard RJ-45 cable. Check with your local Mac dealer, not an Apple store, or look online.

    It's an AAUI-15 ethernet connector, and like skywalker said, you need a transceiver.


    Here's one place to get a transceiver:

    They also have the HDI-45 connectors (from the other thread).


    That computer should also have two "Geoport" serial connectors (9-pin DIN).
