In VirtualBox I use the default network adapter, which is the:
PCnet-FAST III (AM79C973)
The manufacturer of the network card is AMD. It has released all necessary drivers:
PCNTPK.COM – a packet driver (for mTCP, WATTCP, Trumpet TCP)
PCNTND.DOS – a NDIS driver for Microsoft Client
PCNTNW.COM – an ODI driver for Novell Netware
Sometimes it’s nice to have more than one driver running: For instance run the mTCP ftpserver while sharing a folder with Windows.
In theory you could just start the packet driver and the NDIS driver. But to keep more memory free, it’s better to start a “shim” that allows us to use NDIS or ODI driver as packet driver.
DIS_PKT9.DOS – transforms the NDIS driver into a packet driver.
ODIPKT.COM – transforms the ODI driver into a packet driver.
These are the drivers we’re going to use.
