Reply to:   RE: Prob w/ nubus PowerMacs/OS9/Retro

The only known issue with NuBus Power Mac clients is that when these
machines are put to sleep, Retrospect will report an error -1028 when trying
to contact them. This is not an issue with PCI Power Macs.

Also make sure "Load only when needed" is unchecked in your TCP/IP
control panel's Options window (if you don't see an Options button in the
control panel, change the User Mode to Advanced from the Edit menu).

If these don't help, please call us. Tech support is open today, but will
be closed tomorrow, Christmas Eve. We will open again on Monday.
