Disclaimer: I know, Win9x is not supported. But since hal-9000 on his Dosbox - NE2000 website shows a screenshot with Windows 95 inside Dosbox happily connected to the Internet, I still dare to ask:
I was able so setup networking in Win95 (quite easy) and even managed to get folder sharing with my Win7 host (a bit more complicated, see here: Guide: Windows 95 / 98 inside Dosbox - Accessing files on the host and mount CD images with mapped network drives ). So in principle the network works.
Only minor problem (at least for me) that remains is that I'm not able to reach anything else than my host machine from within Dosbox. Not the internet, no other machine on the LAN, nothing. I set up TCP/IP Gateway and DNS like I always do with every virtual machine, tried various in- and outgoing rules for Win7's firewall for Dosbox, even disabled the firewall completely for testing purposes. But still no luck. Theoretically everything should work fine I think, but it simply doesn't.
If someone accidentially has any idea what could possibly cause this or has any vague hint that could help to solve this mystery, I'd be really glad to hear it.
Thanks in advance!
