Here you can find notes of using Neo1973 (and maybe other OM devices) with Mac.

Connecting to your device


You can telnet, SSH, SMB or do whatever you want if you install software that enables you to set up TCP/IP network over your USB connection. The only driver I know is Download it and install according to manual foung inside of the package.

You should have new ethernet interface in your System Prefereces. Set up network manually for that interface and then set up your network manualy on the Neo1973. You should be able to connect to your Neo!
