- MSPRESS Microsoft Windows NT Resource Kit 3.1
This article was previously published under Q106545
The Services for Macintosh utilities in the Windows NT Resource Kit allow administrators to remotely administer their Windows NT Advanced Server from their Windows NT workstations. If you already have Windows NT Advanced Server on your local machine, it doesn't give you any new functionality.
The utilities also allow developers to write to the Microsoft AppleTalk stack with Windows Sockets and have the protocol stack to test on their Windows NT workstations without having Windows NT Advanced Server.
The administrator tool setup adds MacFile entries for your local Server Manager and File Manager menus. The Windows NT Resource Kit DOES NOT support MacFile; that is, it does not install the MacFile server on your local machine. This is contrary to the misleading statement on page 437 in volume 1 of the Resource Kit.
The AppleTalk stack is also provided in the Windows NT Resource Kit to allow developers who do not purchase Windows NT Advanced Server to develop applications using Windows Sockets for AppleTalk. Essentially, the AppleTalk component in the Resource Kit is targeted at Windows NT installations only; Windows NT Advanced Server includes all the necessary tools to build Windows Sockets applications for AppleTalk.
