Inside Macintosh:

Networking With Open Transport

This edition of Inside Macintosh: Networking With Open Transport describes the 1.3 release of Open Transport, a communications architecture for implementing network protocols and other communication systems on Mac OS computers. This architecture provides a set of programming interfaces for applications and other software.

You will need this document if you are a network applications designer accessing AppleTalk or TCP/IP networks, such as the Internet, at the transport level. This document will tell you how to use AppleTalk, TCP/IP, and serial network providers.

This document is about using network providers, and does not include information on how to implement Open Transport network protocol modules or device drivers. That information is covered in the documents provided with the Open Transport Protocol and Module SDKs. Nor does this document address kernel-level code-building. This document does not tell you how to write your own network provider using Open Transport; instead, this document is written for developers of applications that use network providers. For discussions of networking topics other than Open Transport, see Inside Macintosh: Networking; for information about programming MacTCP, see the documentation accompanying the MacTCP SDK.
