My company had developed a DOS based PC that controls a manufacturing process in an industrial environment.  There will eventually be 60 PC's installed, which will be networked together to an NT Server.  The sub-net will use NetBEUI.  I'm looking for a software library package that will give NetBIOS functionality to my DOS application.  I want to be able to send status information from the DOS app to a database app running on the NT Server.  Any suggestions on available libraries?  Needs to be MSC 5.0 / 6.0 compatible.

Get hold of "Client/Server LAN Programming" by Barry Nance, (ISBN 1-56529-924-8) This book is all about network programming under DOS (and OS/2) and covers Netbios, IPX and many other topics about DOS network programming. I have use this book alot and it serves the  goal perfectly!
