How do I make a dosnetwork with 3 PC's


how do I get a dosnetwork?
I want to connect three computers in dos 6.22 so I
can play multiplayes games over ipx/spx.
Do I need a dos network or do the games have everything included;
even if they do I still need a dosnetwork for other applications)

What software do I need, and how do I install it
(especially the configuraton script is important for me, I can't figure it out)

I've got a driver installation diskette for a NE2000
(RPCI ethernet adapter; E2000PCI; www.rpti.com.tw/drivers.htm#7)
compatible network card.

Does this have all the software in it or do I need something like netware?

Please explain me everything about dos networks?

You mentioned one alternative.  I belive netware has a peer to peer network software package (you don't need a server).  Another network I have installed and used is Lantastic.  I'm not sure if Lantastic has IPS/SPX protocol available.  I think it does.

The disk that came with your NE2000 card contains drivers that networking software would use, but no network software.

Lantastic is manufactured by Artisoft.  Check out www.artisoft.com for more info on Lantastic
Please try "Personal Netware". It's a peer to peer network software package.

But how do I configure and install it?
Can you give me some additional information about networking with ipx/spx?
How do I see the computers? e.g. driveletters!


Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

First, rmichels, Lantastic doesn't support IPX nor TCP/IP. It's a netbios protocol. Unless you add something to it, which I haven't found yet.
Arjan, you don't even need a network, all you need are a couple of drivers: Your network cards drivers, and the IPX drivers. Send me your E mail address at johnt@mail.club-internet.fr and I'll send you back everything you need.

TCP/IP does come with Lantastic V7.  It is an add on with earlier versions.
Isn't that a Windows only version?
