    Question Lan

    I was wondering if it would be possible to run a program in DOS on two comps using a LAN. I checked the FAQ, but I couldn't find anything. Sorry if I overlooked it. Both the computers are running Windows XP. I would be using Bloodshed Dev-C++ to do so. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    What do you mean by DOS? DOS 6.0? Or is a console app with DOS box in Win32 system?

    If you're running a Win32 DOS box, just use Winsock

    >>> winsock being...?

    WinSock being the standard implementation on a Windows system of Berkeley sockets, the way you do what you want to do. Search google for WinSock, you'll find hundreds of help sites.

    If you are running XP, then there is no DOS. Windows 9x systems still had elements of DOS running underneath them, the NT cored systems, (NT, 2000, XP), are full 32 bit operating systems, there is no DOS.
