Are you running this over Ethernet or LocalTalk? If you are using
Ethernet, it's a piece of cake! Just setup the IP addresses in MacTCP
[and TCP/IP for the Open Transport Machine] and that's about it! When you
want to connect to the other machine, just reference it's IP address and
it should work.

LocalTalk will require a DDP to IP gateway [like the Apple IP Gateway] to
encapsulate IP into AppleTalk packets running on the LocalTalk network.
