AppleShare is a file-sharing solution that Apple built on the AppleTalk protocols. It has been around for a number of years. Every Macintosh computer has built-in client software for accessing AppleShare servers. The latest incarnation of AppleShare is AppleShare IP, which operates on the TCP/IP protocol suite rather than AppleTalk, although AppleTalk is still supported.
AppleShare IP was specifically designed to work with Mac OS 8.5. It improves file, print, mail, and Web services for Macintosh users and other clients.
