Specs: Windows XP, p-iv 2.0 , 512 , 80g
I had a situation where five windows 3.11 wkg pc's were somewhere 500-600 meters away from main office and was located in the manufacturing dept. Everytime i needed to update or input any data i had to physically move to that locatio, and had 40 to an fros.

So finally decided to have a network, and had it . Now I cam transfer files inbetween windows 3.11 and windows xp pc ( i sit on ). I still have to go to pc to operate the program installed under windows 3.11 .
If we have an option to remote control windows 3.11 pc sitting at windows xp pc, it would really be great . It will definately save a lot of time.

On seraching found that VNC client is avalable for windows 3.11 , but not vnc type server is there .
Please help suggest

I don't think you will find anything like that for Windows 3.11. Programs such as VNC, Team Viewer, and Remote Desktop, are able to work by taking advantage of functionality within the OS. Windows 3.11 is much more primitive OS and lacks the necessary features.

I suppose such a program could be written but it wouldn't be easy, and considering the very low usage of the 16 bit systems it is highly doubtful if such was ever written.

You can use a old version of PCAnywhere 2.0!

There were other commercially available products that did it as well.
Post your question over at

There's a lot of clued up folk who know older systems inside out.
