Trying to connect G3 to iMac using an ethernet cable.
Cable fits both ends (I borrowed it from my cable modem, where it normally connects my G3 to the modem), but I'm having trouble establishing a network, and wondering whether the cable is right.
Apple talks about 'special crossover cables' and seems to differentiate it from a 'standard ethernet cable'.
Any cable experts around here?
Or, any networking experts, who may be able to suggest some 'obvious' points that all novices miss! (I shouldn't be a novice, but it is ten years or more since I played with networks and sharing, and you wouldn't believe how much I've forgotten).
