Login to NT 4.0 with MSClient 3.0 and IPX ?
Posted on 1998-07-16
Hope anybody can help us ....
This is the problem:
We have updated our Primary and Backup Domain Controller from Win NT 3.51 to Win NT 4.0 SP3 (German Versions).
The controlling-PC's in our production of energy-meters have MSDOS 6.2 and MSClient 3.0 with the IPX-protocol, because there is more free conventional DOS-memory with IPX than with TCP/IP.
Since our Servers are running NT 4.0 it is not possible to login with MSClient and IPX.
WFW3.11 and Win NT Workstation with IPX are able to login.
So, we decided to install MSClient (the files shipped with Win NTServer 4.0, directory MSClient) and TCP/IP.
We had to install the standard-redirector because of the DOS-conventional memory would be too low with the extended redirector.
Our problem is that the MSClients under TCP/IP are loosing the network connections (printers and shares) after some minutes.
Is this an effect because of the standard-redirector?
If we have to use the extended redirector, it would be only possible with IPX-protocol (DOS-memory!).
But we can´t login with IPX.
These problems are a little bit urgent, because the production of our energy-meters is very disturbed.
