What are you having problems connecting to a Mac, the 48GX, the 50g, or both?
What ports are available on your Mac? RS-232? IrDA? USB?
Are Kermit-based or Xmodem-based applications available on your Mac? If so, then which ports can they be used with?
Any Kermit-based application should be able to work with all 48 and 49 series. I don't know much about Xmodem (maybe there's more than one "flavour" available?), but the 48G series and newer have it built-in.
But the 49g+ and 50g lack an RS-232 compatible port, which I believe Kermit and Xmodem applications generally expect to use.
That said, I have an RS-232/IrDA adapter which, with the included software, shows up on my PC as a "virtual COM port", which allows me to use at least HyperTerminal to connect with the 49g+ and 50g.
You might be able to use HPConnect between the 49g+/50g and your Mac for a USB connection.
