FreeDOS Networking

Florian Xaver found this DOS networking information, and I am re-posting it here because it should be of interest to anyone trying to put FreeDOS on a network:

F.I.S.H. - FreeDOS-based web server. The test server is running on a 386 SX/25 with 4 meg of RAM. Of course, you don't need a souped up monster of processing power like this to run it; it will run with far fewer requirements. http://FISH.baseteninc.com/

Also, Florian answers the question: "Does anybody know a way to connect a PC that runs MS-DOS as a client to PCs running NT or Win95?"


Yes, use a lanman client for DOS. There are different ones available. The best and complete informations you can find on some OS/2 or Linux networking sites.

Jacco's OS/2 Sites: http://huizen.dds.nl/~jacco2/os2.html go to the
