I have succesfully used the configuration below for many years,
but have always had problems connecting to Win computers on the network.
No problems connecting with other Dos machines, and file transfer both ways.
I can browse the Dos machine from the laptop (Win XP), and do all the usual
stuff (copying , deleting etc), but the Dos machine doesnt recognise the
computer name / path that I am trying to "USE".
My need is to transfer reporting files to a Windows machine.
It will be to a specific directory that is fully shared.
To me it appears that I have a configuration wrong on the Dos machine,
Would appreciate any helpfull suggestions.
I run the SetNet.bat once on each new install.
OS = Ms-Dos (ex Win95) , I generally use FreeDos,
but need to have this working first.
PC = Industrial CPU board
C:\NET\net share /yes
C:\NET\Net share * /delete
C:\NET\Net use * /delete
C:\NET\Net share /yes
C:\NET\Net SHARE Master-C=C: /FULL 'drive name = Master-C
C:\NET\Net USE D: \\Laptop\acer
Error 53: "... cant find computer in Path statement.." or something like that.
Edit: I can Ping the Laptop with good response.
Is it possible to connect using an IP address instead of Path Name.?
