Run Winsock on Win 3.1 NT client
Posted on 1997-03-01
I have a Win3.1 NT client with NETBEIU connecting to a NT server. Now I want to connect my computer to Internet over a LAN, so I have to install Trumpet winsock in order to run mail client or Telnet client etc on my computer.
How can I change my set up to achieve the above?
I've tried to add a packet drive to the protocol.ini but failed. Please explain your answer in details. Thank you.
My previous description to the problem (as above) may cause some misleadings. Let me be more specific to the question.
My desktop is running Windows 3.1 and connecting to a NT server using
"NT client for DOS". It works fine when multiprotocols are used.
Now I want to connect my desktop via a LAN (to a Unix server connected to the Internet instead of a modem) and use winsock mail, ftp clients etc.
Those clients have to be running on winsock. Then I installed a packet driver by changing my autoexec.bat (referring to the sample as below. However, both connections to NT server and the 'Internet server' were broken. I feel my settings are not quite right.
