DOS and PcAnywhere

i have a computer that i wish to run two distinct Applications (one a DOS application - PhoneMaster; and the other pcAnywhere).

Can i get my NEW copy of OS/2 Warp 4 to do that?

I used Warp at another job - using mostly DOS apps.

Can I use my current version of pcAnywhere or do i need to get hold of an older copy.

What i want to do is enable the DOS application to run, but have pcAnywhere enabled as a gateway to other computers running pcAnywhere located elsewhere in my WAN.

Although I don't know PhoneMaster and never used pcAnywhere myself I can't see any problems running these in Warp 4. As far as I know the DOS support hasn't changed much lately in OS/2, so if you can run it in OS/2 at work you should be able to run it at home.

To my knowledge, the only two categories of DOS programs causing real problems in OS/2 are those that use DOS memory extenders, and those that require low-level hardware accesses.

close this question...

I found that OS/2 requires a NIC with an address of 300 and all the computers i was trying to use were set at 240 and because of other apps that were running, it made it impossible to change at this time
You can get the current version of OS/2, which is now called eComStation at;

The main eComStation website is:

As for PC Anywhere, what are you running?  The client or the server?

If you are using it to have remote access to the OS/2 machine, don't bother.  eCS includes a nifty application called Desktop On Call.  It allows you to access the computer over the network with any other computer that has a web browser and java.  If you are using it to access some other computer from the OS/2 machine then ignore what I just said.
