DOS / Win2k Networking
jpanetta Apr-28-01 04:55 AM
I need a little assistance here. I need to be able to allow a DOS (or DrDos) system to access a shared partition on a Windows 2000 Pro system. I have configured my 2000 system to run as a server with 2 other systems (95 and ME) with TCP/IP through a 4 port Linksys Broadband Router with no problems. I am well versed with networking protocols, but I guess it's been WAY too long since I've messed around with DOS. Any help would be appreciated.

Browse to ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/clients/msclient, download dsk3-1.exe and dsk3-2.exe, double-click to expand, and run setup. Larry

Actually, I found that link about 30 mins after I posted the message! However, I am still having difficulties. I installed the software and NIC with no problems. In fact, I can ping anywhere I want to, both on my inhouse network and through the Internet. The problem is that I can not get to my Win2k box. I'm using straight TCP/IP and have the packet drivers loaded in the autoexec.bat file. What am I forgeting??

I haven't set-up a DOS client in a long time, but I believe you can add the NetBEUI protocol in addition to TCP/IP. I would try that. I have a floppy for a DOS client and will take a look at it if you become stuck. Larry
