I would like to know how I create a dos char server/clint in DOS. A very simpel one, connect to IP,computername, type in text. Something like that. I would like Tutorials more than someone answer in code in here. Using Borland C++ 5.02 and DJGPP.

It is not possible to access any windows networking services under dos, with the exception of 32-bit console mode applications.

And you say that why?

I''ve seen a TCP/IP layer for DOS, and used the ping tool that came with it... it worked fine. If one was to write for the TCP layer under DOS they could access Windows TCP sockets no worries.

Also, there are IPX layers for DOS used in many old games, some with source available (ie Doom, Quake). If the Windows server app is using IPX and not TCP, then that could be used.

That requires a whole TCP/IP stack for DOS, which wouldn''t touch the Windows ones. I remember using (not programming for one) one about, damn, 9 years ago, but Window took over shortly afterwards.
