    I think that's what you are looking for :

    Network Client V3.0 for MSDOS or MSDOS Workgroup-Add-On V3.11

    For details see

    I have successfully set up a dos computer as a server for a windows
    98 machine client. You just run intersvr.exe on the DOS based server
    (make sure you have the latest version from your win95 or win98 CD)
    then after placing a line in your config.sys to load interlnk like
    this:

    DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\INTERLNK.EXE

    you simply restart your computer, and interlnk should configure
    itself, if I remember correctly.
    also make sure that interlnk.exe actually exists in the directory
    pointed to in the device= line in config.sys.

    keep in mind that interlnk/intersvr are extremely limited in their
    functionality, but I have found them to be somewhat useful for some
    things.

    hope this helps.

    It is possible to do it with just Windows 3.11 and a free download from MS -- I've done it myself using a 286 acting as a printer and file server running on a Windows 9x network!

    You'll need the NET.EXE update for Win3.11 that includes a SERVER option. (the file has the meaningful name of WG1049.EXE and can be found somewhere on the MS FTP site).

    I cheated a little to set it up though... I installed Win3.11 on a 386 or 486 machine (since 3.11 does not run on a 286) and configured the network card & network settings, etc. The I moved the HD and network card to a 286 and added in the NET update... that way there was no hassle setting up the PROTOCOL.INI and other network card-related settings necessary to boot to a real-mode DOS+network setup.

    Good luck!

    You will have to use something like lantastic to make a dos machine a server.

    I never had two computers to test it, but if memory serves correctly:

    intersrv.exe and interlnk.exe are both DOS 6.2/6.22 executables which allow
    file synchronization between two computers through a parallel or serial port.
    As far as working with a LAN adapter or otherwise, I couldn't tell you. Both
    utilities should be available on the Win95 and Win98 CD's. Hope this helps!

    It is possible for a DOS machine to participate in a Windows network as a client using the Microsoft Network Client version 3.0 for MS-DOS, which is, or was, available for free from Microsoft (and also included on the Windows NT CD).

    I don't think Microsoft ever made available any software that would allow a DOS machine to act as a file server for Windows clients. There was the INTERSRV utility, but I don't think that was "Windows aware".

    i have exactly the same problem you have, ben. i have two windows
    machines and one dos 6.2 machine networked together for the same
    purpose as you stated. the two windows machines (1 16-bit isa and
    the other is a pci) are happy with each other but the dos machine
    is another story.

    the dos machine can see the two windows machines but neither
    windows machine can see the dos machine. i am losing a lot of
    hair over this one.

    started a topic DOS and Windows Networking

    DOS and Windows Networking

    Does anyone know how, or already have a way of setting
    up a DOS box that can be accessed from a Windows box
    as if it were just another file server.
    I would like to setup a couple of old computers as file
    servers that would be running DOS.
    I searched through the forumns but didn't find anything.
    Any code snippets would be appreciated.

    Thanks
