Well, I am new entry to this forum.

I have two dos computers and one XP Home machine. They are connected using a Hub

I installed Microsoft Network client 3.0 (with Tcp/ip) but could not connect to XP machine from Dos machine.
I am going to use dos programs in XP Machine

Please help me what to do to connect to XP machine. A detailed tutorial may be helpful.

I'm somewhat confused. How exactly are you going to use those DOS programs on the XP machine?

A detailed tutorial will be difficult, since MS-DOS networking requires manual configuration, and it will depend on the specific NIC you have, and the drivers in question.

How about telling us what you want to accomplish?

Thank you.
Well I should have posted in detail.

I have a multiuser dos program in XP-home machine and three 4gb workstations.

The dos program in XP machine has to be used by other workstations. The work stations need not use any other resources in XP machine.

I installed microsoft Network clinet 3.0, tcp/ip in one of the workstations and manually changed the ip address in protocol.ini to have fixed ip address.

The problem is that the workstation doesnot recognise the XP machine. It says there is no servers found in that workgroup.

let me please know whether any changes have to be made in XP machine?

Multiuser DOS program? Can you be more specific?

What operating system are the three workstations mentioned running? Can you PING either way by IP address or computer name?
