LC //e Card - AppleTalk Notes

It is fairly easy to mess up AppleTalk from the //e environment to the point of having to restart the whole machine, not just the //e Card.

The AppleTalk node address is shared with the host Macintosh. The main side effect of this is that the AppleTalk stack on the //e side cannot see NBP names registered on the Macintosh side. You can't turn on File Sharing or run AppleShare server on the host Macintosh and use the services from an installed //e Card.

Without updates, booting from AppleTalk in the latest official IIe Startup application leaves you stuck at ProDOS 1.9. Without modification it doesn't actually download the boot blocks over the network.
