Surviving with OS/2 Warp in a sea of Windows: http://home.flash.net/~roknrob/sea.htm
If you need to network an OS/2 Warp 4 box to an NT 4 server, this article should
help provide some step by step directions. Most of the information for this article
came from Robert "RokNroB" Thomas's site Surviving
with OS/2 Warp in a sea of Windows. Besides that site, I found some good suggestions
both in the OS/2 mail lists and newsgroups.
If you are doing a new install of OS/2 Warp 4, you have to install TCP/IP and
also File and Print Services. Otherwise, if you don't have these installed already,
you have to install them using Selective Install for Networking in the
Install/Remove folder in the System Setup folder.
1.Using DHCP it is not necessary to setup DDNS. This is apparently only useful when a Warp machine is the server.The Routing Tab should be checked so that the subnet for the default route given is correct.
1.If you chose not to define this information during boot you may need toNext the Hostnames Tab should be configured.
add a default route. If you add a route then set the type to N and then enter the information
1.Set the machines hostname, and domain name if it is not already configured.Double Click on the Blue Microchip in the upper left corner to close and save the network settings. If prompted to autostart Ultimail it is up to your situation; but if it is not used then you may not wish to start this service.
2.Next add the DNS addresses to the Nameserver addresses box.
3.At the bottom of the page select the right button to change to page 2 and Set the Primary Domain Controller's (PDC's) address and the Domain's name as the Hostname. Also the Backup Domain Controller (BDC) may be likewise configured:
Now go back to the System Setup Folder and select MPTS Network Adapters
and Protocol Services. MPTS is used to configure what protocols are bound to
each network card.
Choose to Configure.
Select LAN adapters and Configure.
From the protocols box select "IBM OS/2 NETBIOS OVER TCP/IP" and Add this protocol.
Select the above protocol from the Current configuration and Click on Change Number. Set this protocol to Logical Adapter #1
Now Select IBM OS/2 NetBIOS OVER TCP/IP and choose Edit.
Then select Driver Parameters and click Configure.
1. Change Node type to H-Node.Next select Names List and click Configure
2. Set NetBIOS Name Server address to the primary WINS server.
3. Set the Backup NeBIOS Name Server to the secondary WINS server.
4. Click OK to close dialogue.
1.Click on Add and set the NetBIOS name prefix to the name of the PDC and then enter its IP Address:
Now select Broadcast list and click on Configure.
NetBIOS name prefix
Host name or IP address
1. Click on add and enter the address for the PDC and choose Ok. Then close the Broadcast List Dialogue.Now Close the NetBIOS over TCP/IP dialogue. Then click Ok, Close the configure Dialogue, Exit MPTS, Allow MPTS to update config.sys and Exit. And Reboot.
Now find a file call rfcbcst.lst and add the PDC's address to this file.
Then find a file call ibmlan.ini
1.Under the [networks] section add the line net2 = tcpbeui$,1,...... (The 1 is a reference to the logical LAN adapter you set earlier and the rest of the entry can be copied from the net1 statement.) Find the line wrknets under [requester] and add Net2 to this setting, Eg. Wrknets = NET1,NET2. Now reboot and you should be done.
NET USE (DRIVELETTER:) \\SERVERNAME \SHARE.
EG. NET USE N:\\SRV-APP1\NETDATA
This should help you along. I put it together to setup OS/2 machines so they
could share on our corporate domain.
