At A Glance

The Apple MultiServer was planned as an OEM version of 3Com’s 3Server dedicated file server from 1986. It had an Intel 80188 processor, 1MB RAM, 80MB HD (expandable via SCSI to 768MB), and connected to thin Ethernet coax, telephone modems, and Apple’s LocalTalk. It ran 3Com’s 3+ software for File and Print sharing, EMail and internetwork Routing. It was intended to fulfill Apple’s promise of a file server for the ‘Macintosh Office’. It was cancelled at the last minute, and the unshipped units were used in Apple’s sales offices (thanks to Hugh Mackworth for this info).

Remember the MultiServer?
