Windows 3.11 with Server 2008

I have a client who wants a new 2008 server but have a single cutting maching which runs windows 3.11 and cannot be upgraded.

I need to get this maching a be able to access shared folders stored on the 2008 server.

Is it possible - and if so how?

I can't actually do anything with the software on the Win 3.1 machine.

I have the core of Win3.1 and thats it.

What type of file server will it support?

How would you set up your network to fit in this machine?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Well im not sure on whats available in the "Core" 3.11 installation. But if it has either a coaxial or maybe even a ethernet adapter my guess would be IPX. But i think you needed Novell software to enable it, and it wasnt core functionality as far as i know.

Else you might be limited to parallel or serial connections. Using hyper terminal you should be able to connect the latter of modern systems..

Also if it is the "Windows 3.1 for workgroups" then the IPX protocol should be available. And it gets quite hard finding any manuals for these old OSes. But... Maybe this resource can help.

It might also be rewarding searching the novell pages.
