    I need to network several DOS based & Windows or Linux based systems & I'm looking for some source code ?

    Steve --

    Do you mean that you're looking for PB/DOS source code that will allow you to network two or more computers (running different operating systems) together? If so, unless you are talking about very simple things like serial-port-based file transfers, I can't imagine a circumstance where something like that could be written in PB/DOS. Even then, PB/DOS could not be used for the Linux computers.

    Can you be more specific about what you need to do?

      Are you referring to file/print management, or actually writing networked applications? If it's just file serving, there are clients/servers for the SMB protocol for all three platforms that works rather well. As for programming, I believe there's been some discussion of late about tcp for dos. For windows and linux, of course, it's built in.

        Print sharing is not important but file sharing is.

        I want to use standard net work cards

          Sorry, I'm still not clear about what you want to do.

            I can give you information on using samba for Linux and connecting to a Windows machine in order to share files. Please contact me at:
            torriem at hotmail dot com.

            That kind of thing is not really within the scope of this discussion group.

            As for the programming part, if you have a specific question relating to PowerBASIC, please state it and perhaps someone can answer.

              Thanks Micheal that would be a great Help.

              With ref to my first post, all I need to do is to be able to acces drives on other computers on the network. I'm using a program called DOSNET. Ive tried to load the network driver before windows starts with no luck.

                Please contact me over email or at tell me your email address. (I'm at torriem at hotmail dot com. Convert at and dot to symbols.)

                It sounds like you're interested in DOS connectivity, so I did a little research and found the following page: http://sprysgi.sghms.ac.uk/~cspry/co...g/dos_net.html

                It has some good stuff on running a SMB client on DOS. Apparently the MS client for DOS has it's own built-in stack, though I don't know how it works. But it can be used to share files across Windows 9x/NT sytems and DOS or DOS/WIN 3.x systems. Sharing files between window boxes is trivial, and after reading a few samba docs, Adding a unix box into the mix is also rather easy. I'm going to try the ms-dos smb client tonight (Called Lan Manager) on my dos emulator in Linux.
