Individual programs should not need to have their own
copy of the DNS server address.  That address should be
kept by the TCP/IP stack.  I use WLPRSPL with Win95 all
the time.  It works very well.

1. WIN95 printing to Unix Print Server using TCP/IP.

An lalternative is to run Samba on the Unix box assuming you have a
C compiler on it. Samba lets a Unix box join a MS Workgroup (WfW3.11,
NT or Win95) and fits in nicely with the MS way.

I'm currently using it between a BSD/OS (BSD Unix) PC  and a Win95 pc.
