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!

Sounds like just the type of text I'm looking for, unfortunately, it's out of print.  Any suggestions of online resourses or other items that would give me the same information?
