Will OS/2 Lan Requester and Dos Lan Requester allow access to LanMan servers?

Post by C. R. Oldh » Fri, 24 Jun 1994 02:27:50



I'll be installing an additional file server running Lan Server 3.0 in
an office where the users also need access to a Lan Manager server on
the same network.  Does anyone know if the OS/2 Lan Requester and the
Dos Lan Requester will provide access to the Lan Manager server so I
don't have to jump through hoops trying to load two requesters?

Also, the IS staff there keeps mentioning PathWorks and Dec 2100
file servers.  I have no idea how Lan Manager is related to PathWorks
and I'd appreciate any information anyone has on the relationship
between the two.

Thanks in advance,

Pathworks (5.0 and 5.0a) have some SERIOUS performance problems. I have
trialled it on a 3000/600 and have managed to use 90%-100% of the CPU when
using pwadmin to merely change the permissions on the file tree. (Big bummer).
Its also pretty slow. On our net it's no faster than PCNFS (WHich is no great
runner in the speed stakes). The Lan Server OS/2 client will talk to the
pathworks server though.

If you really want a lan manager server you can't go past samba. Its free,
you get the source, and its free. It only does tcp/ip though, no netbios
over netbeui, so you need the tcp/ip netbios for lan server if you want
to use the lanserver client.

I have heard that MS have a lan manager client available free on their ftp
server however I haven't tried it out yet....

DISCLAIMER: In case anybody from DEC reads this, Its my opinions only and performance figures quoted are simply my experience. I speak innno way for the place I work for or post from.....

1. OS/2 LAN Server 4.0, DOS LAN Requester HANGS!!!

Hi All,

I have just installed LAN Server 4.0 on a PC-500 everything appears fine on
the server.  However the DOS LAN Requesters are hanging when the NET START
command is issued.  I can logon from a 3.0 DOS LAN Requester fine.

DOS LAN Requester works fine when IBM NETBEUI protocol is selected.  The
problem arises when we use the LAN Support Program (LSP) which we need as it
provides the 802.2 support for TCPIP apps.  I have tried a multitude of
changes to the config.sys with no luck.  I have tried LSP 1.36 which came with
LAN Server 4.0 and LSP 1.37 with identical results.

It would be much appreciated if someone could help me with the matter.  I have
lodged a request with IBM, but they haven't been able to help so far.
