Re: MacTCP/Open Transport Issue

Has anyone had trouble using CU on a Mac 7500 using system 7.5.5? Have
you been able to make it work? I was operating just fine until I
upgraded my system from 7.5 to 7.5.5. Now CU freezes everytime I try to
connect and gives me a type 1 error, type 11 error, or just a dialog box
border that flickers in a very scary way.

There is a caveat in the CU Readme about Open Transport and CU being
incompatible on the 7500/8500. I do know someone who has it working on
a 8500, however. They don't know why it works.

Does anyone have advice? I tried removing the TCP/IP and putting in
MacTcp files like the Readme says, but then I lose the ability to use
Config PPP to access the internet. I have written to the discussion
group twice but have no response.

Does anyone know if System 7.6 fixes the problem? I got it but am
scared to install it now.

Any help would be *most* gratefully appreciated. Is CU working to be
Open Transport compatible???
