DOS Shell through TCP/IP, File Sharing
Posted on 2002-07-12
I Have two PCs, connected through a 100 MBs hub.
One of them is running Windows XP, another is MS-DOS 6.2
on the dos machine i have installed Microsoft network Client 3.0 with TCP/IP and currently have access to my windows XP shared files
How can I run command.com with a tcp (not udp, but i guess that is not the issue) socket set to stdio.
I would also like to be able to start other programs which could inherit stdio from that copy of command interpreter.
There is a similar thing when you run command.com on a serial port, only here I need it through a LAN. One connection would be fine (considering the DOS's ability to multitask) and the machine could remain locked while expecting the connection. It wouldn't be a permanent connection.
Once again I stress that the use of file-sharing "at the same time" with dos-shell is crucial.
