Want to buy Appleshare to play with networking several of my vintage macs. Anyone out there have one they want to part with?

To verify, are you looking for the software "Appleshare", or the LocalTalk networking hardware?

If you're just looking for the AppleShare client software you can download version 3.8.3 here: http://download.system7today.com/appleshareclient383.smi.bin

Thanks, however I have some macs that will be on the network that have system 7 and version 3.8.3 of appleshare says that it needs os 8 or above. Do I need to get an earlier version of appleshare such as version 2 or an earlier version of 3? Also, just like to actually have the REAL software in my hands.

Not sure where it is listed that it needs OS 8, but I have AppleShare 3.8.3 installed on my Color Classic running System 7.6.1. Here is an AppleShare compatibility matrix from Apple:

If you're looking for a particular version let me know, I have several from the Apple Legacy Recovery CDs.
