I got TCP/IP working. Actually the DHCP program in mTCP helped me identify what my correct local IP was. Then my internet browsers just started to work, so that's done now. I believe the easiest way for somebody else to succeed would be:
1) Download the packet driver for your card (may be tough to find)
2) Use LH (packet driver file name.COM) 0x60 at the end of your autoexec.
3) Download winpkt.com
4) use LH WINPKT.COM 0x60 right after 2)
5) Install Trumpet winsock in windows
6) Run TCPMAN and enter setup - pick packet driver and enter all your network settings
7) Install mTCP and run the DHCP program to get a lease on a local IP address and update trumpet accordingly
😎 With trumpet running in the background, internet should work at this point
Digging up this thread a few years too late, but wondering if someone can help me out with the same issue.
Using the mTCPIP tools I was able to get networking going on my 386 DX40 machine running DOS 5. 0. I used the SMC 8000 packet driver for my 8416 card, and Mike's FTP utility has been a godsend to get files easily transfer over.
My next project was installing Win 3.1 (not 3.11) to play around with Netscape 1.0 running, and so I downloaded Winsock 1.0 and finding this thread followed the quoted post.
DOS boots up with a successful DHCP, and then I run Windows. Once in Windows I ran the TCPman and did the TCPman setup adding in my IP info, DNS, etc... (I have reserved an IP for the 386 in my Router). The first issue I has was when TCPman was launched I got the TCP and WINPKT not found. This was fixed by adding in the WINPKT.com 0X60 to Autoexec.bat as now TCPman runs without error, gives the MAC addr of the nic card, and displays the IP info. However, when I run Netscape 1.0 and try to access any webpage that is 30 years old, such as the first website, it can't find it. I'm basically trying to test that Netscape works at all by going to extremely old simplistic websites that should be ok. But seems Netscape keeps saying it can't find it.
I keep TCPman running in the background when I'm trying to use Netscape.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated, feel like I'm almost there.
