This file contains information about making your network compatible

with MS-DOS 6.22. If you are running MS-DOS 5.0 or later, you do not

need to make any changes to your network to make it compatible with

MS-DOS 6.22.

If Setup referred you to this file, see Section 1 below. If you are

looking for additional information about your network software, find

the appropriate section below.

This file contains the following sections:

1. Setup referred you to the NETWORKS.TXT file

2. 3+Share

3. Arcnet systems

4. Artisoft LANtastic

5. AT&T StarGroup (non-LAN Manager)

6. Banyan VINES

7. DEC Pathworks and PCSA

8. IBM PC LAN

9. IBM DOS LAN Requester Version 1.30 or Earlier

10. Microsoft LAN Manager and 100-Percent Compatible

Networks

11. Microsoft MS-Net and 100-Percent Compatible

Networks

12. Net/One PC

13. Novell Networks

14. PC-NFS

15. TCS 10Net or DCA 10Net

1. Setup referred you to the NETWORKS.TXT

file

===============================================

If Setup displayed the "You have specified that your computer is

connected to a network" screen, your computer might be running an

older version of network software that is incompatible with MS-DOS

6.22. For more information, see the section in this file that

addresses your network software. If you don't find instructions on

making your network compatible with MS-DOS 6.22, obtain an upgrade of

your network software from your network vendor, install the upgraded

network files, and then run MS-DOS 6.22 Setup again.

After you have upgraded your network software, when Setup displays

the "You have specified that your computer is connected to a network"

screen, choose the Continue option. Your network should work correctly

with MS-DOS 6.22.

2. 3+Share

==========

If your network software is 3+Share 1.6 or earlier, and you

previously upgaded to MS-DOS 5.0, your current version of the 3+Share

redirector will work with MS-DOS 6.22. After you install MS-DOS 6.22,

type the following at the command prompt, and restart your computer:

SETVER MSREDIR.EXE 5.0

If you do not have the redirector included with MS-DOS 5.0,

obtain the redirector by ordering the Supplemental disks or by

downloading the disks from the Microsoft Product Support Download

Service (MSDL). For more information, see the coupon at the back of

the MICROSOFT MS-DOS USER'S GUIDE.

After you obtain the redirector, follow the instructions in the

NET.TXT file on the Supplemental disks.

3. Arcnet systems

=================

If your network uses Arcnet hardware, you might need to run the

Microsoft Diagnostics (MSD) program by using the MSD /I command.

If you must use the /I switch, do not choose the Networks option

in MSD.

4. Artisoft LANtastic

=====================

If you are using any version of Artisoft LANtastic,

shut down the LANtastic server before you run MS-DOS 6.22

Setup. There is no need to shut down the redirector.

Artisoft LANtastic versions 3.02 and higher are compatible

with MS-DOS 6.22.

If you are using a LANtastic version earlier than 2.5,

contact your network vendor for an update.

If you are using LANtastic versions 2.5 through 3.01,

carry out the following procedure

To update LANtastic versions 2.5 through 3.01:

1. Shut down the LANtastic server. You can leave the

redirector running.

2. Set up MS-DOS 6.22 on your computer. For more information

about installing MS-DOS 6.22, see the chapter

"Getting Started" in the MICROSOFT MS-DOS USER'S GUIDE.

If MS-DOS displays an "Incorrect DOS version" message

when your network restarts, ignore it.

3. Type the following command at the command prompt:

SETVER SERVER.EXE 4.00

4. Restart your computer.

If you are using EMM386, you might need to exclude the memory area

used by the network adapter card. To do this, use the X switch with

the DEVICE command for EMM386.EXE in your CONFIG.SYS file. If you are

using the factory-set defaults for the LANtastic 2Mbps adapter,

include the X=D800-DFFF switch with the DEVICE command for

EMM386.EXE. If this memory region is not excluded, you might

experience problems with programs that use expanded memory.

NOTE Microsoft Defragmenter is incompatible with LANtastic network

software if the server service is loaded. If only the redirector is

loaded, Microsoft Defragmenter is compatible with LANtastic network

software.

5. AT&T StarGroup (non-LAN Manager)

===================================

If your network software is AT&T StarGroup, run MS-DOS 6.22 Setup.

When Setup displays the "You have specified that your computer

is connected to a network" screen, choose Continue, and follow

the instructions on your screen. If you cannot run your network

software after running Setup, carry out the following procedure:

1. Type the following commands at the command prompt:

SETVER SETUP.EXE 4.00

SETVER ATTSTART.EXE 4.00

2. Restart your computer.

3. Use your StarGroup installation disks to remove the

existing network software from your computer.

4. Reinstall StarGroup. When the StarGroup installation

prompts you to indicate which version of MS-DOS you are

using, choose MS-DOS version 4.0.

6. Banyan VINES

===============

Banyan VINES versions 4.1 and higher are compatible with MS-DOS

6.22. You can use Banyan VINES version 4.0x with MS-DOS 6.22 if you

have the REDIRALL.EXE or REDIR4.EXE file in the BANYAN

directory on your hard disk.

If neither file is on your hard disk, but you have the VINES

installation disks that include one of these files, copy

the file to the directory on your hard disk that contains

your network files.

If the files are not on your hard disk or on the VINES

installation disks, contact your network vendor.

If you have a VINES version earlier than 4.0, contact your

network vendor for an update.

NOTE

In some cases, Banyan VINES is incompatible with MemMaker. For

example, if your network software loads multiple components

into different UMB regions, MemMaker may not work correctly on

your computer.

7. DEC Pathworks and PCSA

=========================

If you have DEC PATHWORKS for DOS version 4.1,

carry out the following procedure:

1. If you are upgrading from MS-DOS version 3.3 or earlier,

update your redirector file, REDIR.EXE. Obtain

REDIR.400 from the PATHWORKS disks or system service,

rename it to REDIR.EXE, and place it in your DECNET

directory.

2. Install MS-DOS 6.22 on your computer. For more information about

installing MS-DOS 6.22, see the chapter "Getting Started" in

the MS-DOS USER'S GUIDE.

Version 4.0 of PATHWORKS for DOS is compatible with MS-DOS

6.22. However, you must carry out the following procedure to

achieve this compatibility.

To update PATHWORKS version 4.0:

1. If you are upgrading from MS-DOS version 3.3 or earlier,

update your redirector file, REDIR.EXE. Obtain REDIR.400

from the PATHWORKS disks or system service, rename it to

REDIR.EXE, and place it in your DECNET directory.

2. Install MS-DOS 6.22 on your computer. For more information about

installing MS-DOS 6.22, see the chapter "Getting Started"

in the MS-DOS USER'S GUIDE.

3. Restart your computer, but do not yet run STARTNET.BAT,

which starts the network.

4. Type each of the following lines at the command prompt:

SETVER USE.EXE 4.00

SETVER MEMMAN.EXE 4.00

SETVER LAD.EXE 4.00

SETVER SHOW.EXE 4.00

SETVER NETSETUP.EXE 4.00

5. Restart your computer, and run STARTNET.BAT.

NOTE If you upgrade to PATHWORKS 4.1 from PATHWORKS 4.0, you must

disable the SETVER commands you typed in this procedure. To do this

after you install PATHWORKS 4.1, type the same commands, but replace

the 4.00 with /D in each command.

If you are using a version of PATHWORKS or PCSA earlier than 4.0,

contact your network vendor for an update. Meanwhile, if you are

using PATHWORKS or PCSA version 3.x, you can start using MS-DOS 6.22

by carrying out the following procedure.

NOTE To get support for MS-DOS Task Swapper, use PATHWORKS for DOS

version 4.1 or later.

To temporarily update PATHWORKS or PCSA version 3.x:

1. If you are upgrading from MS-DOS version 3.3 or earlier,

update your redirector file, REDIR.EXE. Obtain REDIR.400

from the PATHWORKS disks or system service, rename it to

REDIR.EXE, and place it in your DECNET directory.

2. Install MS-DOS 6.22 on your computer. For more information about

installing MS-DOS 6.22, see the chapter "Getting Started" in the

MICROSOFT MS-DOS USER'S GUIDE. If MS-DOS displays a series of

"Incorrect DOS version" messages when your network restarts,

ignore these.

3. Type all of the following commands at the command

prompt:

SETVER USE.EXE 4.00

SETVER EMSLOAD.EXE 4.00

SETVER SCH.EXE 4.00

SETVER NETSETUP.EXE 4.00

SETVER NCP.EXE 4.00

SETVER DNNETHAT.EXE 4.00

SETVER LAD.EXE 4.00

SETVER DLL.EXE 4.00

SETVER MEMMAN.EXE 4.00

SETVER DNNETHLD.EXE 4.00

SETVER SHOW.EXE 4.00

4. Restart your computer.

8. IBM PC LAN

==============

If you use IBM PC LAN 1.34 and have problems with

disable it by typing REM and a space in front

of the command. Then save the file and restart

your computer.

10. Microsoft LAN Manager and 100-Percent Compatible Networks

=============================================================

If you are running any version of Microsoft LAN Manager or a

100-Percent Compatible network, and Setup referred you to this file,

obtain updated network files by ordering the Supplemental disks or by

downloading the disks from the Microsoft Product Support Download

Service (MSDL). For more information, see the coupon at the back of

the MICROSOFT MS-DOS USER'S GUIDE.

After you obtain the Supplemental disks, follow the instructions

in the NET.TXT file on the Supplemental disks.

11. Microsoft MS-Net and 100-Percent Compatible Networks

========================================================

If you are running any version of Microsoft MS-Net or a 100-Percent

Compatible network, and Setup referred you to this file, obtain

updated network files by ordering the Supplemental disks or by

downloading the disks from the Microsoft Product Support Download

Service (MSDL). For more information, see the coupon at the back of

the MICROSOFT MS-DOS USER'S GUIDE.

After you obtain the Supplemental disks, follow the instructions

in the NET.TXT file on the Supplemental disks.

12. Net/One PC

==============

If Ungermann-Bass Net/One PC does not load with MS-DOS 6.22,

do one of the following:

o Contact your network vendor to get an updated LOADNIU.EXE file.

o Put a UBPAUSE command between the LOADNIU and XNSBIOS

lines in your MSNET.INI file.

o Run network commands from a batch file that includes a

PAUSE command between the LOADNIU and XNSBIOS lines.

13. Novell Networks

===================

When this NETWORKS.TXT file was published, the current version of the

workstation shell was 3.32 PTF. Obtain version 3.32 PTF or later for

use with MS-DOS 6.22.

If you have a NetWare version earlier than 2.1, or your network

software uses any of the following files, contact your network

vendor:

NET3.COM

NET4.COM

XMSNET3.EXE

XMSNET4.EXE

EMSNET3.EXE

EMSNET4.EXE

If you can't load MS-DOS 6.22 on your remote-boot workstation,

contact Novell for the RPLFIX.COM file.

If you run LOGIN.EXE, MAP.EXE, and SESSION.EXE from MS-DOS

Shell or while MS-DOS Shell is running, a search path is not

added to the existing path. Use these programs before starting

MS-DOS Shell.

If you use the Novell login program to set the COMSPEC variable after

starting MS-DOS 6.22, and you can't reload the COMMAND.COM file, edit

the SHELL command line in your CONFIG.SYS file. Make sure the path to

COMMAND.COM points to the root directory and remove the C:\DOS\

parameter that follows the path, if one exists.

For example, suppose your SHELL command line looks like

this:

SHELL=C:\DOS\COMMAND.COM C:\DOS\ /P /E:512

Change it to look like this:

SHELL=C:\COMMAND.COM /P /E:512

Or contact your Novell vendor to get a new login program.

If you are having problems using Microsoft Undelete on a Novell

network, use the MAP ROOT command in conjunction with the Delete

Sentry level of delete protection. (If you have Novell Netware

version 2.15c or older, obtain the most recent MAP.EXE file from your

network vendor.) For example, you would use MAP ROOT syntax similar

to the following (normally specified in the server's login script):

MAP ROOT F:=COUNT/SYS:USERS/JOEB

In this example, F is the network drive letter, COUNT is a file

server name, SYS is the volume name, USERS is a subdirectory of

volume SYS, and JOEB is the root for a network user. On JOEB's

computer, the AUTOEXEC.BAT file would contain the following syntax:

UNDELETE /SF

The /S switch specifies the Delete Sentry level of delete protection and

F specifies a network drive to be protected. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file should

specify /S[drive] for each drive to be protected.

NOTE

If you use Microsoft Backup for MS-DOS or Windows to back up files

to a network, and your network software is NetWare 286, the gas gauge

will move very slowly at first. This is due to the way NetWare 286

handles writing files to the network.

NOTE

The %OS_VERSION parameter used in login scripts will return v6.22

as long as you are using shell version 3.32 PTF from Novell.

You should not need a SETVER entry for the Novell shell.

MS-DOS Setup and Shared Windows Configuration

---------------------------------------------

If you use a search drive to access your Windows initialization files

(PROGMAN.INI, SYSTEM.INI, and WINFILE.INI) on a network directory, and

you want to install the Windows programs included with MS-DOS 6.22,

carry out the following procedure before you run Setup.

NOTE The information in this section applies both to the normal

Setup installation program and Setup run with the /E switch.

* Temporarily override the search drive by using the MAP command

at the command prompt. For example, if the network drive assignment

for your Windows directory is W, and the path is \USER\JOEB,

type MAP DEL W: at the command prompt to temporarily delete the

search drive. Then type MAP W:=SYS:USER\JOEB at the command prompt.

Then run Setup. After Setup is finished and restarts your computer,

your system will return to its normal configuration.

14. PC-NFS

==========

If you use SETVER to report a different version of MS-DOS to a

program, PC-NFS 3.x may report the version incorrectly. If you are

having this problem, contact your network vendor for updated network

software.

If you use PC-NFS 3.0 with MS-DOS Shell, MS-DOS Shell might display

more drives than you have currently enabled. To prevent this, use the

PC-NFS /D switch to specify the number of drives you are using. For

more information, see your PC- NFS documentation.

If you can't use the COPY or XCOPY command on PC-NFS 3.01, contact

your vendor to get an updated version of the PCNFS.SYS device driver.

If you use PC-NFS network software, carry out the following procedure

before you run MemMaker:

1. Open your MEMMAKER.INF file using any text editor. This file is

in the directory that contains your MS-DOS files.

2. Add the following line to the file:

*NET

3. Save the file, and then run MemMaker.

15. TCS 10Net or DCA 10Net

==========================

DCA 10Net Plus Versions 4.20 (20) and later, and DCA 10Net versions

3.3 (41) and later are compatible with MS-DOS 6.22. If you have an

earlier version, contact your network vendor for an update.

If you are running a compatible version of 10Net Network Software,

disable the network software, and then run MS-DOS 6.22 Setup. After

you install MS-DOS 6.22, reenable your network software.

NOTE

Microsoft Defragmenter program is incompatible with 10Net network

software if the server service is loaded. If only the redirector is

loaded, the program is compatible with 10Net network software.
