Stepehen Heumann has announced the release of AFPBridge for the Apple IIgs. According to the announcement on CSA2, AFPBridge is
“a tool that allows an Apple IIgs to connect to file servers using the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) over TCP/IP. It works by using the existing AppleShare FST, but redirecting its network traffic over TCP/IP rather than AppleTalk.”
AFPBridge is compatible with Apple IIgs’s with system 6.01 or later and a Network card compatible with Mainetti such as the Uthernet.
According to Stephen’s release AFPBridge allows users to
AFP file servers from a IIgs, with no need to set up an AppleTalk network. This provides a very convenient way to move files to and from the IIgs, just by copying them in the Finder or accessing them in any other IIgs program.
