OS X reading NEXTSTEP formated drive - Mac Applications & Software

I got my NeXT slab (NEXTSTEP 3.x) out of storage and need to transfer all my data (about 6 GB) from it to my Mac running OS X now that I got OS X loaded. What is the easiest way to do this? I don't think OS X can read NEXTSTEP/Openstep files system directly, so I can't just mount the drives. I've been kind out of the loop the last few years and not sure where this stands. Thanks for any help or suggestions. John...

    Default OS X reading NEXTSTEP formated drive

    last few years and not sure where this stands.

    It's been 10 years since I have had a NeXT cube -- but I think you
    should be able to NFS export whatever you need to. On the NeXT, you
    can do this using NFSManager, which is located in /NeXTAdmin.

    OS X can mount NFS exports.

    Why not just put both systems on your network and ftp the files over
    to your Mac? This is, of course, assuming the files are in a format
    that can be handled by at least one of your Mac apps.

    I don't recall what connections the NeXT has, but good old Ethernet
    should work. Connect them up and use rsync or ftp, or mount the
    drives using NFS.
