I have just finished retiring a Sun SS5/170, replacing it with a Sun
Ultra 1E/170. 

Mine is a 1E/170 Creator 2D unit with 640MB of RAM, and I got it for

Just a note: the Ultra 1 machines are a lot quieter than the SSx series
machines (SS1/5/10/20) for some reason, and not only that, but is a more
airy sound which is easier on the nerves.

Soon I hope to have a fast ethernet card on it hooked to a Linksys
WET54G so it can expand its gateway duties.

Anyway, in a couple of weeks I'll have an SS5/170 available free to a
good home if anyone here wants it. It is about 12 years old and works
great.  Just pay shipping from 23663 USA and you can have it.

Otherwise, it goes to the dump.
