Title

Connecting a Vintage Macintosh to the Internet

Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

This project implements several programs to help bring a three-decade old Apple Macintosh Plus into the modern era. An http proxy server renders modern webpages for the ancient web browser, an ftp server allows the Mac to share files with other devices on the local network, and a smtp/pop server allows the aging email client to send a receive emails.

All the programs used are open source programs for Linux apart from the http proxy server, which is a simple Python script based on Tyler Hicks’ MacProxy project.

Set up involved installing/configuring several pieces of server software on the Pi, writing the two scripts for the http proxy, installing the client software on the Mac, and configuring the parameters for the connection to be made.
