NIC Etherlink III found under WfW, but not under DOSS 6.22. I'm following Mr Mbrutman's TCP/IP pages to instal networking in DOS. Any help Appreciated.

To begin with, are you loading the packet driver before trying anything mTCP related? Does it give any errors?

The Diagnose utility says no card found

Are you loading the packet driver? You did not say if you were or not.

Check to make sure that the command line options you are using on the packet driver match what you told Windows - the I/O ports, IRQ, and memory windows (if used) have to match what the hardware is set to or the hardware will not show up.

I'll try that now. If it's set to PnP would that matter?


EDIT:

Interrupt: Automatic.

Base I/O Port: 0x0300.

Base Memory Address: Automatic.

That depends on the packet driver. You are going to have to do some reading and experimentation.

The mTCP documentation can be found here: http://www.brutman.com/mTCP/mTCP_2015-07-05.pdf

There is a large section on setup (including packet drivers) and debugging.

OK. I'll start studying. :)

EDIT:

I think I've got the packet loaded. My DOS skills are a bit rusty. Does the command line go in Config.sys or autoexec.bat?

EDIT 2:

I've gotten as far as "good news everyone" in DHCP.

EDIT 3:

I can ping my Win 10 PC but not the DOS machine from the Windows 10.

The fact ping is working from dos means that side is ok. You should be able to ping your router as well. You should be able to use ircijr as well.

Yes I can ping my router.

Your DOS machine will not respond to ping from another machine unless it is actively running an mTCP application. No program running means no TCP/IP services running ...

Ah, right O. I've made a little batch file to get to "good news everyone" which works. Now to test an mTCP application.

I'm having trouble with "anonymous [email] /drive_e/ftpdata /testdir/incoming stor stou". I get a incoming is not a directory message.

EDIT:

OK, I set the two lines after brutman...( I'll change that later) to [any] all.

That works.


EDIT:

I set the ftp and anonymous to a directory on server. can see directory in filezilla

OK, I've setup up an FTP Server and it seems to be running well. Thanks for the pdf.

My next task is to try and set up a DOS browser.

Would that work with a broadband connection?

Would that work with a broadband connection?I don't see where the connection type is a factor in the equation.

Ok, I shall experiment.

I suppose the most popular DOS browser is Arachne. I gave it a try on my Pentium 233 but didn't like it too much. So I stuck with Windows. :-)

I'm really doing it to fill in time. Yes I've heard of Arachne - and Lynx.

Any of the Lynx releases that are less than eight years old are for Windows.

How do you find it?

How do you find it?

Grand. Easy to configure. Depends on the sites you visit whether you get intelligible results. I want to try Arachne but only have 4Mb left on the drive. Waiting on a 512 MB Disk-On-Module to arrive.
