DOS and Networking
SayJay Jan-19-02 10:30 AM
I have 2 computers. First one MUST use DOS Mode under Win 95 (BOOT to DOS, not DOS window), Second coputer is running Win Me. Both computers are using D-Link DFE-530TX 10/100 cards. When I allow the first computer to run in full Win 95 mode, both computers work fine. However, I must run this computer in BOOT to DOS mode for other attached equipment (VERY onld CNC Milling machine). Under Win 95 regular I have assigned the IP of 90.0.0.1 and the Win ME computer is 90.0.0.7. I can not get this "DOS" computer to comunicate with the Win ME computer.

MY QUESTION: What commands do I need to enter under Win 95 BOOT to DOS mode do I need to enter to allow my computers to talk? I think I have it down to :

LSL
DLKFET
IPXODI
NET START WORKSTATION

But when I try to do NET VIEW, it can not find the other computer (The Win ME one). Would this same thing also be needed for older network gamming?

Thanks for any help!

See if http://duxcw.com/faq/network/dosclient.htm helps. I have not setup a computer for DOS networking in a long time. Larry

Thanks for the quick advice Larry, but the link in your help message no longer works. Since I am using Win 95 (but BOOT to DOS mode) I think I have the DOS client. My problem is that for me too it has been a long time since I have had to network in the DOS world. I think I am 90% there, but can't remember the steps needed to get TCP/IP addressing working under DOS mode.

By the way, you have the best help and answer site on the net as far as I'm conserned. Keep up the good work!
