Always look up Michael Bernardi's great list of internet applications at: <http://www.dendarii.co.uk/FAQs/dos-apps.html> Beneath <http://www.tsoft.net/software/nfs/download.html> see also: <ftp://ftp.oldskool.org/pub/tvdog/internet/advanced/xfs191.zip/> There's also a Mini Howto for it at <http://fd-doc.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php?n=FdDocEn.NFS> Never tried it myself. > 2) SMB : > I tried the msclient with no luck. > Besides, I heard it uses a lot of memory and I guess it could be a > nightmare to setup > with the different smb versions out there. So I dropped this option. Many people use MS Client with success to share files between a DOS and a Windows machine. To share files between a DOS machine and a Linux file server running Samba (that's what you use, if I understand you correctly) you have to configure Linux Samba to use "security = share" instead of "security = user" (which is the default and much more secure. You probably should not do that if your fileserver is connected to the internet). Look here for a german description and an example smb.conf (although that one looks a bit too complicated IMHO): http://www.alice-dsl.net/gerd_roethig/dosnet.html#lindos MS CLient has to use the TCP/IP protocol to work with Samba. > 3) RSYNC (over ssh ?) : > Has rsync been ported to dos ?

AFAIK Arachne has a sort of ftp client built in. Wasn't there also an APM for it? Minuet <http://www.fdisk.com/doslynx/minuet/> also has a graphical ftp client. I always used ftp the other way round: I ran a FTP server on the freedos machine and logged in with filezilla from Windows. I used EZNOS2 and ftpsrv32 from the Watt-32 applications (more stable but slower, download at <http://www.filegate.net/utiln/utilnet/wt32apps.zip>) as ftp server. Sorry, my FreeDOS Box is down at the moment (needed the harddisk for something else) so I can't experiment with it at the moment. (Yes, there's a backup ;-) ) Uli ------------------------------------------------------------------------- This SF.net email is sponsored by: Microsoft Defy all challenges.
