DOS CLIENT for LINUX SERVER

jprohart answered the question about WIN NT, WIN95,98 etc. clients on Linux boxes(they can use smb). What I didn't understand in his answer is how to have a DOS 6.2 client for a Linux file server. Auto login on powerup would be nice.

Hi,

You can use Microsoft LanManager for this. It's the same client that is used to connect to WfW 3.11, W95 and NT servers from DOS. It supports TCP/IP and NetBEUI. You can map drives with the NET USE command, like in a DOS box in W95.

You can download MS LANMAN from the Micro$oft site.

you need LANMAN package on DOS, then   net view  should list the connected servers/worstations, while   net use  x: \\server\share  connects to server.
