You will not be able to do this in any simple/worthwhile manner unless you use WFW 3.11 or W95. I do understand the need to implement this using a completely out dated version of Win. I have the soln. and will be happy to give it to you if you yet need it. But, I would recommend you rather upgrade to a higher version of Win. If you do this in 3.0 or 3.1 you will have severe memory conflicts and system crashes.

This is not an answer. I appreciate that this is not an ideal solution but as an IT manager with a very restricted budget I have to implemnt my companies requirements at limited cost. If it can be done that was what my question asked.

You have to explain in detail what you want to do.

I see yours question as this:

You want to run TCP/IP together with IPX/SPX (Novell) on your WFW 3.11 workstation.
VLM and TCP/IP have nothing to do with each other. Its two differend protocols.
It is obvious possible to install TCP/IP together with IPX/SPX. You just have to install TCP/IP for WFW. You can find this as freeware on Microsoft WWW. If you cant find it, please send me a E-mail and then I will send it to you.

I am confused, Win 3.11 is the same as Window For Workgroup (WFW).
If you are using standard Win 3.10, you got to use 3. part software like Newt (Netmanag TCPIP) or Reflection TCPIP.
If you have Win 3.11 NOT WFW are you the only one in the hole world.
Please tell me more about yours PC and configuration.

Yes it is Win 3.00 but a very late release somtimes refered to as Win 3.11

Sorry for confusion

Is the 3 party software required in the Public Domaine or must it be purchased

I and sure that you must buy 3 party TCPIP software for Win 3.0. I am sorry, but I dont think you cant get it anywhere for free.
I have only installed Newt (Netmanag TCPIP) client on oround 650 Win 3.10 workstation, but I am sure you can get this client for Win 3.0 also. You can probbably also get Reflection (WRQ) TCPIP for Win 3.0
I am sorry, but this must be the end of story !!!!!!
