Can one run some config.sys commands in DOSBOX?

When the real MS-DOS starts on an old computer, config.sys is processed before autoexec.bat but I want to know if there is a way I can run some config.sys commands. I'd like to be able to set the values to the following variables: FILES BUFFERS STACKS And is there a way to set the DOS environment …

Automating dos FDISK and FORMAT

I have a dell wyse mini thin client with a 128MB flash drive which I can setup dos on, but most of the time I want it to use it as a specialized hide-away server because it interacts with my custom hardware which connects to that computer through a serial port. Yes, I'm a tech at that. Now in order …

Testing the whole DOSBOX environment

i'm looking for a way to test everything in DOSBOX including serial ports and such to make sure everything is setup correctly. I downloaded HWINFO for DOS from http://www.hwinfo.com/download.html and for some tests, they could not complete because DOSBOX exits and crashes with this error: Exit to …

Re: Full internet in DOSBOX/Linux

Ok I seemed to have figured it out. My setup is right but I modified the web server source code so much that it is outputting a series of null characters. I forgot that one part I did was a fixed-length string and I applied a string length check on that and it gave the full buffer space instead of …

Re: Full internet in DOSBOX/Linux

Ok, so I'm debugging webserv.bas and now the trumpet socket driver is being odd. Anyways, I make the connection, the result headers print but the data body does not print yet in my code, I only instructed it to print out 198 bytes of code. Somehow its calculating that I'm putting out 511 or 512 …

Re: Full internet in DOSBOX/Linux

Ok, so I did make an arp version of my startup script and when I used mTCP's ping , all 4 attempts returned a timeout. #!/bin/bash echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward socat -4 PTY,link="/tmp/dbnet",raw,echo=0 TCP4-LISTEN:"8001" & sleep 1 slattach -d -s 115200 -p slip "/tmp/dbnet" & sleep 1 …

Re: Full internet in DOSBOX/Linux

The mTCP docs discuss a similar setup that uses Proxy Arp instead. I would use that as the basis of your setup, as Proxy Arp allows inbound connections to the DOSBox side. Ok, so I cleared my iptables and now I modified my startup script to be as follows: #!/bin/bash echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_ …

Re: Full internet in DOSBOX/Linux

Your setup seems to be confused. If you are using NAT (Network Address Translation) on the Linux machine, then outbound connections from the DOSBox side will work, but no inbound connections to the DOSBox side can be routed. You need explicit rules to make inbound connections work. The mTCP docs …

Full internet in DOSBOX/Linux

Hello, After reading guides, I am able to access internet through DOSBOX but I want to also run a webserver designed in Qbasic with it but that part will not work. For the rest of this post, I'll call the qbasic web server the DBWS (for DosBox Web server). I got the web server software from here: …

SIOUX web server with CGI

I'm doing a big project in which part of it involves communication between my new PC, my old PC, and my custom hardware connected to my old PC via serial port (RS232). I tried Linux but it didn't work. Then I must try DOS because it's real-time. I did manage to get my network card up and running in …
