I've created a MS_DOS 6.22 VM which is running well, the only problem I have is that I'd like to connect my host, which runs Windows XP, to this MS_DOS VM through a virtual network tcp/ip.
Is there anyone who can help me on this?
Many Thanks in advance
Thread moved to Workstation forum.
Well, you can always just use the floppy disk (or image) to the VM. Once you get the CD-ROM driver installed in the guest, you can use an ISO image. Or you can mount the (powered off) virtual disk to your host and just copy the files to it.
Did you read the information on the page I linked above? There's pretty good information on how to set up all of that. Not completely step-by-step, but fairly complete. I've been intending to write one up myself but haven't had the opportunity/time to finish it.
Yes, I downloaded the files from the Zamba's page and not tried yet. The
only thing is that onto the tips it says that the MSClient cannot
install as dedefault the TCP/IP protocol, and it recommends to have a
look to a different website ( http://www.wown.com/j_helmig/doscltcp.htm.
), where a TCP/IP configuration guide can be found. Unfortunately I'm
not able to access to this page.
By the I will try later an get back to you.
First of all I'd like to thank you so much, I was able to run the
network in my virtual dos machine. I found some help you posted on the
forum few time ago, on how to set the system files, and now I got it
By the way I'm not now able to see any shared folder on the host, maybe
because my computer's name is tool long ( more than 8 characters ) or
maybe I missed some setting on the virtual network, I'm now having a
better check on it.
I've got another question:
Is it possible form the host to see my dos machine through the virtual
I'm supposing I need to share some folder on the dos machine, but I
don't know how.
From the host when testing with the ping command, I get answer from the
dos machine, but form the windows start\run when trying
host says that is not able to find-out the network path.
Could you help me on this?
