Your idea of connecting two isolated Macs is ok except that cu-seeme
runs over an ip network only, I beleive, not Appletalk. To get this to
function over Appletalk, you would need some device, such as a Kinectics
Fastpath box which runs encapsulated Appletalk over IP by way of an
ethernet connection. MacTCP is an ip driver which allows the assignment of
a unigue addressing scheme to a host, in your case two Macintosh's.
