Win95, DOS, Win/DOS as Xterminal

Post by Robert Pla » Sat, 19 Jul 1997 04:00:00

Does anyone know of a program which will let me easily use a Win95 box
as an Xterminal.

Ditto DOS box.

Ditto Win/DOS box.

I seem to remember reading something about a product for DesqView in
the early nineties (don't exactly remember, I've slept since then).

1. SoundBlaster 32 PNP ctcm.exe and DOS 7.0 (Win95 DOS)

I just got my first taste of Plug-and-Pray, and it's no fun.

Has anyone been able to run ctcm.exe under MSDOS 7.0 (part of Win95)?
I don't have early DOS by itself on the hard disk, and I still need to
boot linux from loadlin.exe. Currently I can't install linux until
I set the sb32pnp IDE as ide1 to access the cdrom drive.

Here are some problems I found:

1) When running ctcm.exe from DOS 7.0, it doesn't recognize ctpnp.cfg
in any directory (C:\, C:\CTCM) even if I set CTCM variable. It always
configures sb32pnp in a default way no matter how I change the ctpnp.cfg.

2) What is the purpose of ctcu.exe? It seems I can just edit ctpnp.cfg and
be done with it. Somehow ctcu complains that it can't run in a dos box,
even if I boot into DOS 7.0 of Win95. I had to run it from DOS 6 boot
disk, and it is VERY VERY SLOWWWWW. Each key response time is about
1.5 sec.

For now, I have to use a DOS 6 boot disk to run ctcm.exe and it is
working okay.
