You also don't have anything built by DARPA, can you disable tcp/ip?

Just because Apple designed the protocol doesn't mean it's tied to MacOS

However, if you're configuring everything manually and explicitly, you can
disable it. It is a protocol intended to make a LAN usable without any
configuration at all



I do not think Carlos or most of us are against using avahi what we are
trying to figure out is how to around of something that is not working.
Until opensuse 11 I installed the OS and during the installation I could
upgrade and I had not problem to connect. With opensuse 11.1 I just can
not connect and I can not use the network manager that is very important
with my ThinkPad so I can not use it for business because I want to run
the same OS in all the machines. It is a pity because the rest is great.
