PCAnywhere for MS-DOS
I need control remote of a MS DOS 6.22 computer via LAN from a normal computer using e.g. Windows XP. PC Anywhere 5.0 for DOS is already installed on the first computer and after running the hardware diagnostic utility it seems to be working properly there. It says (Network with IPX, no gateway):
"Check Network Driver -> passed",
and Test network communication say:
"Channel Status 65.5".
This seems to be right, after been trying a lot of drivers and stuff downloaded from the internet. (Yes, I had to use diskettes again, for the first time after about three years)
I do not have the right documentation and could not download it form the symantec website.
On the other side there is a normal WinXP-Computer wiht the PCAnywhere 12.1 Testversion.There, I could not find any configuration item for IXP, but one for SXP and just selected it.
Then I start des DOS-PCanywhere as a host and it says, it waits for a call. Nevertheless, the calling PC-anywhere does not find the host. It asks for an IP-address, but this doesn't exist for IPX, or am I wrong?
This kind of remote connection is the one afforded by the customer.
Thanks for help an for any hint, where I can get more information, also payed.
