Installing TCP/IP Protocol on DOS Computers

Download TCP4DOS.ZIP (1,103 Kb in size)

The computers in the drill room often require DOS to drive Excellon and TruDrill machines. To connect these computers to your network you need to install Microsoft Workgroups for DOS. Generally we use versions 3.10 or 3.11 with NetBEUI protocol. However, if the rest of your network is using TCP/IP protocol it may be easier to enable TCP/IP in the drill room rather than setup NetBEUI on your file server.
