Wait, I don't need to explicitly run SLiRP under Windows right? It's rolled into Previous, ya? Is that my problem?

Hey Blake - it is available on my Previous site - http://previous.unixdude.net/download.html

Thank you! And networking works for me under OS X. Not sure why Windows 10 setup didn't work as far as networking.

I generally use NFS or an ISO disk image to transfer files. A while ago, some NFS activity would cause Previous to crash but I have not tried it lately.

Exactly the same situation, but this time with Previous 2.1 + NS3.3 on MacOS (tried on two different machines with different OS). Checked all I could, apparently everything is fine, consistent with what the real NeXT machines are reading (bar for the addresses, of course), but still no way to get networking up and running.

Tried to run the whole thing all over again, but networking still does not fully work. E.g. if I ping www.apple.com, the address is resolved but all packets are lost.

what's your gateway address? do a netstat -rn and look for a 'default' or a '0.0.0.0' (sorry, dont have a NS/OS box handy to tell you exactly what to look for). Or just post the whole output here.

The gateway would need to be local (same network).
