i am using acernote to connect to my pc using direct-cable connection.
can i use direct-cable connection for tcp/ip protocol?
it seems netbeui works well since i can use net view
command from dos prompt to see whole workstation in
my host network.
i don't know why tcp/ip doesn't work, because when i
ping from my host to notebook, it failed.
can anybody tell me, is it impossible using direct-cable
for tcp/ip?? if it is possible, must another third party
software involved??? thanks

Hello !
The answer is " no ".
Direct cable connection is for serial or parallel cable connection. For TCP/IP netwok card is required.

Regarding proposed answer - TCP/IP DOES run over a Win95 dial up networking server, even if their is no network card...

Are you sure TCP/IP is installed on both machines? Have you assigned IP addresses on both macihines? If so, try removing the Direct Connect component through Add/Remove programs | Windows Setup | Communications, then reinstall. If TCP/IP is installed before Direct Connect, I would think this is more likely to work.

Comment for hpierson :

I thought we were talking about direct cable connection NOT dial
up networking - so once again the answer is " no ".
If you wanted to use "dial up", there is no problem to assign
tcp/ip but only combined with dns and your server's dhcp. To be able to assign an IP address on local machine knowing that your server doesn't use dhcp (address pool)you MUST have a network card installed.

Comment for pjozwiak,

You don't need dns or dhcp for dial up TCP/IP. You can assign a specific IP address to each dial up adapter, with DNS disabled. I have done it this way.

What about using a dos packet driver (perhaps from www.crynwr.com), winpkt.com, and a package like Trumpet Winsock or Firesock.  (Demo versions from www.trumpet.com)?
