[MS_AppleTalk parameters]

The [MS_AppleTalk parameters] section contains entries for configuring AppleTalk.

This section can be used only with the [Networking] section.

Answer File Entries for the [ MS_AppleTalk parameters ] Section

 

Entry Description

DefaultPort

Specifies the network on which you register the Services for Macintosh service names.

DefaultZone

Specifies the default zone for the network if the network adapter is seeding the network.

DesiredZone

Specifies the zone in which the Services for Macintosh service is present.

EnableRouter

Specifies whether to start routing for the AppleTalk protocol on this computer.

NetworkRangeLowerEnd

Specifies the lower network number of the network range if the network adapter is seeding the network.

NetworkRangeUpperEnd

Specifies the upper network number of the network range if the network adapter is seeding the network.

SeedingNetwork

Specifies whether the computer is a seed router for a physical AppleTalk network segment.

ZoneList

Specifies the list of zones with which to seed the network.

DefaultPort

Specifies the network adapter on which you register the Services for Macintosh service names.

Syntax

                DefaultPort = 
                adapter name
              

 

Value Description

adapter name

Network adapter name.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
DefaultPort = PCI\VEN_10B7&DEV_5900\1&5070
Comments

If the AppleTalk protocol is not routing, only Macintosh workstations connected to this network can access the file and print services on the computer. Normally, the default port is automatically set to the first Ethernet adapter, Token Ring adapter, or LocalTalk adapter found on the computer (in that order).

DefaultZone

Specifies the default zone for the network if the network adapter is seeding the network.

Syntax

                DefaultZone = 
                zone name
              

 

Value Description

zone name

DNS zone name.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
DefaultZone = Zone2
Comments

None.

DesiredZone

Specifies the zone in which the Services for Macintosh service is present.

Syntax

                DesiredZone = 
                zone name
              

 

Value Description

zone name

DNS zone name.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
DesiredZone = Zone1
Comments

If this value is not set, the Services for Macintosh service for the default zone on that network is used.

EnableRouter

Specifies whether to start routing for the AppleTalk protocol on this computer.

Syntax

                EnableRouter = Yes | No

 

Value Description

Yes

Starts routing for the AppleTalk protocol.

No

Does not start routing for the AppleTalk protocol.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
EnableRouter = No
Comments

If routing starts, Macintosh workstations connected to any networks that the computer is on can use the file and print servers for Macintosh.

Note

  • The remaining entries in this section are network adapter–specific. Therefore, you can use them only in an [MS_AppleTalk parameters] section where you specify the SpecificTo parameter. For more information, see the “SpecificTo” entry in the section "[adapter_specific_protocol_section].”

NetworkRangeLowerEnd

Specifies the lower network number of the network range if the network adapter is seeding the network.

Syntax

                NetworkRangeLowerEnd = 
                integer from 1 to 65279
              

 

Value Description

integer from 1 to 65279

Integer.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
NetworkRangeLowerEnd = 3
Comments

None.

NetworkRangeUpperEnd

Specifies the upper network number of the network range if the network adapter is seeding the network.

Syntax

                NetworkRangeUpperEnd = 
                integer from 1 to 65279
              

 

Value Description

integer from 1 to 65279

Integer.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
NetworkRangeUpperEnd = 33
Comments

None.

SeedingNetwork

Specifies whether the computer is a seed router for a physical AppleTalk network segment.

Syntax

                SeedingNetwork = 0 | 1

 

Value Description

0

Does not seed the network and ignores seeding information.

1

Reads all seeding information and seeds the network to provide the network address to clients, servers, or other routers on the AppleTalk network.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
SeedingNetwork = 1
Comments

The default value is 0.

When specifying the entry SeedingNetwork = 0 for a computer acting as a router on an AppleTalk network, you must supply another router that seeds the network in order to start the first router.

ZoneList

Specifies the list of zones with which to seed the network.

Syntax

                ZoneList = 
                Zone name[, Zone name, ...]

 

Value Description

Zone_name

DNS zone name.

Example
[Networking]
[MS_AppleTalk parameters]
ZoneList = Zone1, Zone2
Comments

This entry is valid only if the network adapter is seeding the network.
