    7.6? Ouch, that's 12+ years old! Are you sure you have content worthy of the effort/potential expense of transferring it? is an FTP that works on older Mac OS's but I don't know beyond that. FTP may be your best option. There's no such thing as SMB for OS 8 and below, so a direct ethernet connection is out.

    "The ancient free classic program NCSA Telnet has a built-in FTP server, I think it hides under the Edit/Preferences submenu." (I found this in a google search on some thread someplace.

    I think there was another thing out there called MacLAN, but I don't know if it's made anymore.

    Just found:
    Fetch is FTP software that works on System 7.

    Set up an FTP server on your PC (there's lots of free ftp servers out there) and use that to connect to it over the network.

    I'll try with a FTP! Thanks for the help!

    P.s.: Its a Mac Quadra 9500, which had some card inside for the old imagesetter (varityper). The system is 7.6 and a panther software rip. So I can't put files of 300 MB to a diskette. :) We tried to buy new mac but they not have the right slot for the "card". And upgrading the software RIP for the new mac it just cost too much.
