Yes you will be able to access the file system. The access is handled via the networking protocols.

Apple dropped support for AppleTalk and classic AFP IP communication in the later OS X systems.

However, I have been able to replace the AFP server on my 10.6 computer with one that handle the old protocol. It is called Netatalk. Appletalk still doesn't work but AFP through IP works perfectly! I do file sharing between snow-leopard and system 7.6.1 without any problem. I didn't try it on 10.9 but if macports wants to install it, I see no reason why it wouldn't work.

I have put together a small how-to here

Thanks for replies.

I might get one of those commslot cards from welovemacs.com, unless I can track something down in Denmark or Europe.

Is there any difference in performance from a commslot card to an LC PDS card?


Main reason to go for a CommSlot card rather than an LC PDS card would be to use your PDS slot for something else, such as a PAS 16 sound card, PDS graphics card, or video capture card. But given that all these are rather hard to find, not to mention that you may not need/want them anyway, 9 times out of 10 you may as well just use a PDS card.

I acquired a Sonic Systems commslot I ethernet card and after some trouble finding the right driver it is Now working. It did not work out of the box with standard Apple drivers.
I am Now able to surf the Web and get files from my 10.9 Mac, using the Fetch FTP client. I have described this in another thread.
