Chapter 5. Networking > AppleTalk & Ethernet

AppleTalk & Ethernet

AppleTalk is the networking protocol used by Macintosh computers to communicate over a network. It's the software that makes networking work. Fortunately, it's not something extra you have to buy—it's part of Mac OS X (and most previous versions of Mac OS).

Ethernet is a network connection method that is built into all Mac OS X-compatible computers. It uses Ethernet cables that connect to the Ethernet ports or network interface cards of computers and network printers. Additional hardware such as transceivers and hubs may be needed, depending on the network setup and device.
