|Being knowledgeable in networking doesn't make one so in the area of installing drivers in DOS. Regardless, thanks Dave! :)|
I cut my teeth on DOS but it's been 17 years since I touched a DOS based machine. What I do remember off the top of my head is your two major configuration files for DOS in which all hardware is/was loaded and they are:
As to which one you would load the NIC drivers in, I have no memory.
I can make two suggestions though at this point.
We have four PC's here running legacy dos applications
Suggestion 1: Look at one of the other DOS boxes and check which file the NIC drivers load in and ensure you're duplicating that in your "new" DOS box.
Suggestion 2: Find a way to update, upgrade or flat out replace the legacy applications.
Mind you, if you figure out how to get them to run virtually, that solves the issue nicely as well and once you have one working, you can spin up as many as you need, and have resources for at a moments notice.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Good luck.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the captain of my soul.
