WINv311 connecting to XP Pro

WINv311 connecting to XP Pro

WINv311 connecting to XP Pro

Needed to get an XP Pro machine talking to a Win 311 PC.  Win 311 has been working successfully with 95, 98, NT4 and 2000 Pro without problems, but couldn't find a protocol between XP and 311 which was compatible.  Ended up downloading the "Wolverine" files, and running TCP/IP which is fine.

Just out of interest, am I correct in assuming that this is the only way to network these two operating systems from different eras?


RE: WINv311 connecting to XP Pro

Haven't tried it with XP cause I'm not into S&M but suspect that you could do it with Lantastic. Probably other ways too, but just haven't felt the need to experiment.

RE: WINv311 connecting to XP Pro

Thanks for that Ed...  I really meant between the protocols that are available within Win 311 and XP Pro, i.e. NetBEUI, NetBIOS, IPX, etc.  Couldn't find a common one that'd work...

The "Wolverine" files, i.e. WFWT32.EXE etc., work fine, but for some unknown reason Microsoft have just "pulled" the path off their FTP site.  Strange or what...?
