    This might a first for the messgae board. I have an older Mac OS 8.1 and I'm using Fetch 3.0.3 to try and upload jpegs into a graghics generator (PostScript1000) made by Videonics (kinda like a PC processor) that I use to make titles for my videos.

    I was able to locate the hard-to-find serial cable to connect the two machines. Now I am struggling with making a connection using "FETCH." The Videonics manual claims that Macs using the Fetch application (client) can upload to the PS1000 (server). When I attempt to connect, I get a Fetch error: "There are too many TCP connection open."
    Please help.
    Thanks.

    That suggests a problem with the way the TCP/IP control panel is configured on the Mac. What are the settings there?

    At this time, the settings are as follows:
    Connect via: "FreePPP"
    Configure: "Using PPP Server"
    I have tried multiple options with no success. If you want me to list the other options listed in my TCP/IP panel, please advise. If you know what the settings should be, please advise. If you know anyone that has succesfully connected a Mac with a PS-1000, please advise. Videonics tech support is unable to answer the above questions.
    Thanks!

    I assume that the Mac and the PS1000 are in the same room? In that case you'd want to connect them with ethernet, and choose "Connect via: Ethernet" in the TCP/IP control panel. Unless the Mac and PS1000 are on a network that can assign IP addresses you'll need to assign them manually. On the Mac you'd set up the TCP/IP control panel as follows:

    Configure: Manually

    IP Address: 192.168.1.10

    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

    Gateway: 192.168.1.1

    On the PS1000 you'd enter basically the same information, but give it a different address, such as 192.168.1.11.

    Then, when you tried to connect with Fetch you'd enter the PS1000's address in the Host field.

    I hope this helps,
