I've setup a small network of 3 retro computers
- msdos with MS Network Client 3.0
- windows for workgroups 3.11
- windows 98 SE
The goal is to be able to share files. I've setup all 3 computers to use NetBEUI, and I can share folders on win3.11 / win98se, and have the msdos machine consume them (using the "net use" command).
Now, I thought I would be able to do the same by using the IPX/SPX compatible transport, without NetBEUI but that does not seem to work.
When I remove NetBEUI support from all 3 machines and switch to IPX/SPX instead on all 3, the MS-DOS machine can see the windows 98SE shares fine, but the windows 3.11 is left in the dark (its shares are not seen anymore by msdos and windows 98).
Any idea what might be causing this ? I have the exact same behavior on Virtualbox when setting up the 3 machines in VMs so it has to be some kind of OS setting.
