Can netatalk be used as part of a true ethertalk to localtalk bridge
solution? I would love to hook my old laserwriter to the printer
port of one of my old powermacs (i.e., localtalk) running Linux and
make it visible to everyone on the ethernet too. Using a commercial
bridge box is great but no one makes them anymore and the remaining
supply is dwindling fast. The old Apple bridge hack works but you
have to run a macos box to use it and that's a big waste if you don't
need macos for anything else. I've played around with the Linux
support for localtalk via the printer port but could not get it
running and it's not exactly a very lively/supported corner of the
Linux world to start with. All the pieces seem to be there in
theory. Any ideas/pointers? TIA.
