Network Communication Translation Utility App
Posted on 2002-03-19
Here is the situation. I have some DoS 5 based client machines that use NetBEUI to pass info to and from other servers. These other servers are IP based now except for one that will be converted soon. Here is the problem...
I cannot add the IP stack to the DOS 5 client based machines, and the Servers do not suport the NetBEUI protocol, and netbios over TCP/IP will not cut-it.
What I'm looking for is a Utility Application that I can load on a "stand alone" machine to pass transactions back and forth. This app will have to listen for any in bound NetBEUI comms and convert them to IP and viceversa. A conversion of the NetBEUI communications to XML would be, great? A Java based app would be great also if such a thing exist.
Are there any applications made that can do this? Any thoughts or help on this topic would be great.
