Sorry, I missed the "3.11" in your statement. Yet, I assumed, and
continue to think that WfW (which we in the Team OS/2 referred to as
"Windows for Warehouses") included only NETBIOS/Netbeui/IPX protocols
as the base for "Peer to peer" LAN networking (printer sharing, disk
sharing), but not TCP/IP.

Where to get TCP/IP for WfW 3.11 ?


"This is Microsoft's stack for use with Windows NT or Windows for
Workgroups 3.11. Unfortunately, this stack does NOT support dialup
connections. Free for owners of Windows NT or Windows for Workgroups.

Download TCP/IP for Windows 3.11b
