This is what I'm trying to do:-
Host is running Windows XP Pro SP3.
Installed Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 software.
Created a vm running MS-DOS 6.22.
All works fine so far.
Why am I running MS-DOS? Well I have a programme called Xrouter which runs in the DOS environment, but I've run into a problem. Xrouter needs to communicate with the outside world using Serial Ports and a LAN connection. I cannot get a LAN port to work in the vm DOS environment, although the card works fine in Windows. I have the correct DOS Packet driver, and the network adaptor works if I boot the computer using an MS-DOS boot disk, but not if I run it through the MS-DOS vm within XP. I can select the network adaptor within the vm Settings, and I have tried plugging in different network cards, but always the same issue.
Is there some trick to get the network card to work in a vm running DOS?
