Omni Apps and NeXTSTEP/Rhapsody Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello all!

Yes, finally i have succeeded in setting up the networking in NeXTStep 3.3 under VMWare Fusion (v2.0.6 using Mac OS X v10.6.2)

Now i can surf the internet using OmniWeb 2.7 (latest for NeXTStep 3.3).
Of course there are many bad drawing glitches, but nevertheless it is great fun!

Sharing files between NeXTStep and Mac OS X is now much easier, as i can access my virtual machine via ftp using "cyberduck" or a simmilar application under Mac OS X.
This is a great thing because with the switch to Snow Leopard some important features of disk utility, which i used to make NeXTStep-readable images, got lost/broken.

A thread describing how to set up networking can be found here:

I hope i could help!


I was a sysadmin when NextStep was in it's heyday. Somewhere I've got a set of registration codes for most of the Omni Apps of the day, as well as for FrameMaker 3.2 on NeXtStep.

There are some things that are classic. The DC3. The Piper cub. NextStep.

My iPod Touch has 8 GB of ram. My NextStation had 20 MB. Asside from the size issue, the NS was as useful.

Omni folk: What is your stand on releasing NS app registration keys?
