Hey Philip00,
it is possible! You can play lan with one PC using DOSBox and the other without using DOSBox.
You need the DOSBox MegaBuild.
Follow this link for the MegaBuild: http://home.arcor.de/h-a-l-9000/
And you'll also need winpcap: http://www.winpcap.org/

Hope that'll help you! 😀

Ahh man thanks for quick answer. I have one pc win xp with dosbox and other win98 without dosbox. I connect them via corsslink cable and make setups. I also have megabuild V6.
I have some question:
-I have to install wincap for both system?
-What i do wrong, because i want to play gp2 lan(i did it with 2 winxp with 2 dosbox already) but now they don't finde ach other. I think the problem is in win98 computer. When i start i have message can't find ipx driver(i start via ms dos commander). What i have to do to connnect to my winxp dosbox computer?

You only need to install WinPcap on your XP system.

Don't forget to have the IPX protocol installed on the Win98 computer, preferably with NetBIOS enabled. You don't have to install IPX on XP. The NE2000 DOS drivers through the IPX Passthrough DOSBox Megabuild will take care of that stuff (per instructions).

On the Win9x machine try removing the IPX protocol and adding it again to restart the driver install process.

by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x

But somewhat they don't find each other, maybe i do something wrong in win 98 -win xp lan?( cinnect via cross cabel, tcp/ip winxp: (192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0) Win98(192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0) i install file and print share

What is the orpblem

EDIT: now the 2 machine find each other i can share files etc... . Now only when i want to play via dosbocx in winxp machine don't find each other. Maybe i do something wrong? when i start dosbox i type ipxnet startserver. What else have to do to find each other?

For IPX passthrough, you do not use IPXNET, but LSL / NE2000./ IPXODI. hal-9000's site should have downloads for that

All or just one of these?

EDIT: i try to use all but when i want to use NE2000 always said: The board cannot be found

now what? 🙁

Hey Philip00,

that worked for me(DOSBox MegaBuild and winpcap were installed):

DOSBox(Win XP):
Start your DOSBox. Run the NE2000 DOS drivers in this order
- LSL.COM
- NE2000.COM
- IPXODI.COM

and that's all about that. Winpcap has to be active but when you installed it properly, I think it should run at startup of XP 😀 ..

Windows 98:
Make sure the IPX protocol is installed. If not, just install the Microsoft standard IPX/SPX protocol.
And that's all!

I hope I didn't forget anything by now 🤣
If I do so just visit http://home.arcor.de/h-a-l-9000/ again and refer to the section

NE2000 passthrough patch for DOSBox

. There should be anything you have to know about IPX passthrough.

Vince 😀

PS: I'm sorry for my bad english if it's that bad 🤣

No, you need the megabuild of dosbox and you have to install something from that page to get the ne2000 thing working

Dit: you need to install winpcap http://www.winpcap.org to make it work and you need the megabuild or yhkwongs build probably

Hey Philip00,

what does your configuration file says?
Check the following section and make sure you set all the correct values:

[ne2000] # ne2000: Enable Ethernet passthrough. Requires [Win]Pcap. # nicbase: The base address of the NE2000 board. # nicirq: […]

[ne2000]
# ne2000: Enable Ethernet passthrough. Requires [Win]Pcap.
# nicbase: The base address of the NE2000 board.
# nicirq: The interrupt it uses. Note serial2 uses IRQ3 as default.
# macaddr: The physical address the emulator will use on your network.
# If you have multiple DOSBoxes running on your network,
# this has to be changed for each. AC:DE:48 is an address range reserved for
# private use, so modify the last three number blocks.
# I.e. AC:DE:48:88:99:AB.
# realnic: Specifies which of your network interfaces is used.
# Write 'list' here to see the list of devices in the
# Status Window. Then make your choice and put either the
# interface number (2 or something) or a part of your adapters
# name, e.g. VIA here.

ne2000=true
nicbase=300
nicirq=3
macaddr=00:00:00:00:00:01
realnic=1

(e.g. that's the section out of my configuration file)
