Hi, good night.
I am a new user here, and I decided to try and ask for help... I am testing with this version of DOSBox for OSX (http://dosbox-x.com), because apparently is supposed to have NE2000 emulation. Was the only one with this for OSX that I could find. I wanted to run Windows For Workgroups 3.11 with network just for fun and to have a fully operational virtual "old machine".
I am using macOS Sierra 10.12 and I am baffled by why the network doesn't work. I have done the same with Parallels Desktop 13 and network does work there, but unfortunately Parallels doesn't have drivers for the sound. Hence why I wanted to try and make it work on DosBox. I can play my games on DOSBOX, there is sound, everything works, WfWG was successfully installed and runs fine except for the networking. It's practically a clean install but no networking.
I did everything I was supposed to do:
- Got a disk image, installed with MSDOS 6.22 and booted it successfully;
- DosBox console is showing that it is looking for network interfaces, so libpcap is definitely there, otherwise it would throw an error message;
- But the listed interfaces are shown with "(no description)", therefore I cannot choose one that could work.
Basically, looks like I need to be able to select one network interface, to continue the routine of configuring the network for WfWG, but I can't.
I am at loss here. I've even disabled SIP, tried to run DOSBOX as root, but no luck. I did some research and found that someone posted about having to edit two lines in libpcap-bpf.c to make it work on OS X. But I can't for the life of me find where is this file to edit these lines? Could someone please point me to the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
