[ct-user] CT and NETTSR on modern computers - dis_pkt?

Good day, all:

I have decided to try to get CT's ethernet network working on my
fairly new laptop. I have it dual booting Windows XP and DOS and
that works great.  The nettsr program requires a DOS packet driver,
and there are not any packet drivers for a lot of the new ethernet

There are, however, NDIS2 DOS drivers for the chip I am interested
in (Broadcom 570X Gigabit Integrated Controller) and an interesting
little program called a "shim" that translates NDIS2 drivers
to DOS packet drivers (dis_pkt.dos).

Has anybody tried this?  Anyone gotten it to work? It looks like
it SHOULD work... :-)

config.sys ought to contain something like:

with an appropriate protocol.ini file.

(I am actually exploring this for potential use at
Field Day next year on more modern computers
running CT.)

Help?!?!? :-)

Thanks in advance.


Mark, KD4D
