OS 9 computer dials internet when connecting to OS X AFP - Mac Networking

    Default OS 9 computer dials internet when connecting to OS X AFP

    On my OS X 10.2.6 based computer I used Net Info to activate AFP over
    EtherTalk, so my two computers do not have to be able to find each other
    based on their IP addresses, but I have bumped into a minor annoying
    problem...

    My OS 9.0.4 based Mac is set to access the internet through a dial-up
    PPP connection, and I would like to leave it that way. However, whenever
    I connect to the AppleShare server on my OS X 10.2.6 computer, the OS
    9.0.4 based computer dials the internet. I usually cancel the connection
    before it is established, and then the OS 9.0.4 based computer connects
    to the OS X 10.2.6 based computer without any issues.

    Why does the OS 9.0.4 based computer try to dail the internet? Is there
    anything I can do, besides putting both computers on there own private
    (10.0.0.x) network, to keep the OS 9.0.4 based computer from connecting
    to the internet when it doesn't need to?

    Thanks,
    Chris
