I got the 'WormHole' program recently described in "MS System Journal"
which does a simple drag-and-drop file copy between 2 PC's
based on WinSocket-API (and TCP/IP). The program reads in
the IP-number or the name of the server to connect to, but then it exits
while connecting to other host with the error message
Cannot locate host ... <host_name>. Unrecoverable error 11003
We are running the newest version of PCNFS under MSWindows 3.1, and thus we are
using the 'winsock.lib' and the TCP/IP implementation provided by PCNFS.
Our LAN is a Ethernet, and the PCNFS Server for the PC's is a Sun worksation.
My question is:
How does a PC resolve the hostname or the host-IP-address if only PCNFS is running?
I tried to run the program simultaneously on both PC's (the first listening and the other one
requesting), but no TCP/IP connection was possible.
If I want to set up a TCP/IP communication between 2 PC's: do I need further software
beside PCNFS ?
Thanks in advance!
