Hello Everyone,
I have a problem with a dual boot machine that is setup with Windows98 and Penta system.
what is Penta system?
It's a system for Proofreaders which connects the PC to a Unix box.

these are the steps that should be taken to setup these machines:
-Creat C: partition and format it with Dos6.2
-install Win98 on C
-copy two folders and bunch of batch files under C:\
-install a boot manager program called Select-it
-User DHCP for Win98 boot ( logon to a win2k active directroy domain)
-the two folders contain bunch of files including PCTCP.ini file in which we put the name of the machine, a static IP, Host name ( Unix box), router IP address and Subnet mask.
-on the Unix box, ther PC names and their IPs are static; users are currently using their machines and i am supposed to upgrade the hardware so everything else remains the same.
-when i boot in windows there's no poblem
-when pc boot into DOS, some line are added to Autoexec.bat to set the TCP/IP info which are read from PCTCP.ini file.
-then i type in: "pem300 PC#" in which PEM300 is a batch file and PC# is the PC name
-after this batch file is run, it prompts again to enter the command: "tcomp" after which the user should be prompted to enter Login ID to connect to Unix Box.
-now the problem is the last part; after TCOMP command, the curser hangs in there and then it asks:"Enter System:"
-at this point it put the name of the Unix server
-it thinks for about 30 seconds and gives back the error : " CONNECT ERROR=60"

i think it has something to do with HOSTS file or .RHOST file , not sure

i'd appreciate any concerns or ideas

thanks
Leila

ok i do not know much about Penta.
but as u said problem might be hosts file and .rhost.
then u can try these.

put pc host name to
/etc/hosts file with ip address.(check the other entries in file and put this one like those others).

create /.rhosts file and put + <windows system name>.

and try this out.

try these on unix server side.

also if u could add unix host name to windows system with its ip address that will be good too.

#define ETIMEDOUT       60              /* Operation timed out */

check ethernet cables and switch lights first
dns is next

Thanks for all of your comments.
I found the problem, it was related to the IRQ conflict!
It is resolved now.

I am not sure - is this a packet driver
http://winpcap.polito.it/install/default.htm
Or you need one from windows ddk

Basically windows runs many terminal packages, like free PuTTY etc
