Windows 3.1

Unlike "Windows for Workgroups 3.11", Windows 3.1 does NOT include the network drivers itself, it has to use DOS-network drivers.



Step 1: Install the
Microsoft Network Client for MS-DOS



Step 2: Configure Windows 3.1 to use the DOS-drivers

when looking at the README.TXT on the setup-floppy of the DOS-Client:

we are advised to configure Windows 3.x for "
LanManager 2.1"

Start up Windows Setup:


Select from the menu: Options / Change System Settings:

and we select as Network
(as suggested in the README.TXT above):
"Microsoft LAN Manager 2.1" (I only used the Basic)

You will be prompted for some of the Windows 3.1 floppies and to reboot.

The network connection is established in
FileManager:
menu: Disk / Network-Connections...


Enter the Network-Path as UNC:
Name of the Windows95/NT4
system and the Share-name

then, select Connect
You have now a network drive
select Close to exit this
window


The new Network-drive ICON is now displayed, allowing you to access the data on the network drive.
