Mazatrol 640T CNC Controller

I have a MAZAK QT-30 Lathe controlled by a Mazatrol 640T controller running Mazatrol's "FUSION" application over a WIN95 OS (it's an old machine).  The 640T supports networking via a PCMCIA card interface.  I've installed WIN95 TCP/IP networking and PCMCIA card services and mapped a directory from our servers.  This works fine on the WIN95 part of the controller.  I can see and open the mapped drive without difficulty. Problem is the FUSION software does not see that drive even after given the complete drive path.  I've gone through MAZAK support, but have not gotten any of their fixes to work.  I realize that this is not the usual type of question seen in this forum, but I'm running out of ideas.

It detects network drive and does not accept files
Installing Winsock2 in addidtion to tCPIP network and running some FTP server on a machine may solve the problem (winsock2 is picky about net drivers - be careful, image disk before and after)

Since you use the idea there are things you can do to preserve your machine running well:

config.sys

FILESHIGH=255
LASTDRIVEHIGH=Z
DOS=HIGH,UMB

Winsock connections use file handles
Around 30 is used by windows
And each ftp session uses 2 connections, so you will need to limit your FTP server to max 100 sessions
if you run out of file handles your system freezes and/or bluescreens
