Hi everyone.
i want to run an old medical dos application which has user and machine accounting.
the application is on a network drive which i can access through dosbox.
unfortunately the application is stating, that the access from the client workstation is not allowed because the host is not in the authenticated computers list.

see attachment ->
msg: Netzwerkstation →LT_DATA ist nicht zugelassen.
but the native hostname of the physical machine is not →LT_DATA.
so in my oppinion, dosbox is emulating the →LT_DATA hostname and i want to change that because i cannot allow →LT_DATA in the application due to problems with this sign.

Will be the machine (NetBIOS) name as returned by DOS Int 21-5e00h. The buffer for that would be (un?)intentionally prefilled by the program with →LT_DATA. DOSBox doesn’t support that function, so that 'name' is unchanged.
You could try vDos (https://www.vdos.info) which supports that function (it is used by more network enabled programs).

DOSBox does not support medical applications and it definetly shouldn't. Try DOSBox-x. Hope no ones life depends on this.
