Hi, I have 3 computers with Windows 98SE and 2 modern computers with windows 7 and Dosbox.
I can't connect the 3 computers running real DOS with the two computers with Dosbox ou megabuild running on windows 7. I would like to play duke nukem, doom, need for speed2, fatal racing and other MS-DOS games with my five computers.

Well, I'm using the Native IPX downloaded at http://home.arcor.de/h-a-l-9000/dosbox_files/ … pxpatch_exe.zip

ipxnet startni

Message: Could not start native IPX Interface. check your network config

Is it because the windows 7 doesn't have suport for IPX protocol?
If I install windows 95 on the megabuild the IPX protocol will work?
If not, is it possible to use the IPX in DOSBox with windows7?

Thanks a lot.

I got the dumpfile.pcap file now.

When I set:


Message: The board cannot be found

How can I install the network device on the MB6 using dumpfile.pcap?

Apparently does not work because the. pcap is not linked with dosbox.conf
How do I install it in dosbox.conf?

Thanks for helping!

My dosbox.conf

demos. Can be changed at runtime but will be put in effect at the next mode switch.
# char9: Allow 9-pixel wide text mode fonts.

# Setting this value too high results in sound dropouts and lags.
# Cycles can be set in 3 ways:
# 'auto' tries to guess what a game needs.
# It usually works, but can fail for certain games.

# Possible values: auto, fixed, max.
# cycleup: Amount of cycles to decrease/increase with keycombos.(CTRL-F11/CTRL-F12)
# cycledown: Setting it lower than 100 will be a percentage.

sound quality.
