  • Network Problems

    This is the closest forum I could think of to post a little problem
    I am having. If it's not appropriate, please accept my appologies.

    I have a 3-PC network configured as a 10/100 ethernet. One PC is
    a 16-bit ISA win/95, another is a PCI win98 or ME and the third is
    a straight DOS 6.2 16-bit ISA.

    The two windows PC's are okay. I have full file / resources sharing
    and these PC's are happy.

    The trouble is the DOS 6.2 PC. I got it to where it can see both
    windows PC's but neither windows PC can see the DOS PC. I have
    tried everything I can think of: Installing SHARE.EXE, path and
    just about everything else. Diagnostics on the DOS PC reveals the
    network card is not malfunctioning.

    Any body have any ideas. Would be REALLY appreciated.
    Thanks
    Cheers
    Mel

    Hi Mel, My guess is that you need a Windows Client installed on
    your DOS machine. You can get this from either a Windows/NT setup
    or by installing Windows For Workgroups v3.11 on the DOS machine.
    This will give you NET.EXE and all of the microsoft client drivers
    for DOS machines. Just using a NIC and packet driver alone on the
    DOS PC will not allow it to talk to the 2 windows computers.

    Hope this helps....

      Hi Scott:
      Thanks for the reply. One thing tho: The DOS PC can see the
      windows PC's. It's the windows PC's that can't see the DOS PC.

      Will check out the NET.EXE thing later on tonight.

      Cheers
      Mel
