1. Introduction

   This Ethernet NDIS driver for DOS is intended to bring additional driver
   support to Microsoft LAN Manager 2.0 for DOS workstations.  You can use
   the LAN Manager setup utility, SETUP, to import new drivers, so that the
   network may be configured with the new drivers.


2. Directory Structure and Contents

   The following directory structure on the installation diskette is to meet
   the LAN Manager requirement.

        \ <ROOT>
        ³
        ÀÄÄÄMSLANMAN.DOS
            ³
            ÀÄÄÄDRIVERS
                ³
                ÃÄÄÄETHERNET
                ³   ³
                ³   ÀÄÄÄEP200
                ³       ³
                ³       ÃÄÄÄEP200.DOS
                ³       ³
                ³       ÀÄÄÄPROTOCOL.INI
                ³
                ÀÄÄÄNIF
                    ³
                    ÀÄÄÄEP200.NIF


    The following describes the directory and file contents under the tree:

      MSLANMAN.DOS and DRIVERS    Contains NDIS driver for DOS.

      ETHERNET       Contains the NDIS driver and PROTOCOL.INI for the Ether-
                     net cards.  The NDIS driver should have its own subdi-
                     rectory in the name of the associated NIF file.

      EP200          Contains the NDIS driver and PROTOCOL.INI.

      EP200.DOS      The NDIS driver for DOS.

      PROTOCOL.INI   The prototype of the final PROTOCOL.INI which stores the
                     configuration and binding information for all protocols
                     and MAC modules in the system.  This is for use of the
                     Protocol Manager during initialization.

                     This file will be bound or modified during the installa-
                     tion.

      NIF            This file contains the NDIS network information that is
                     read by the setup utility.

      EP200.NIF      The NIF file for the Ethernet NDIS driver.


3. Installation

   * Install LAN Manager, together with the NDIS Driver.

    1) Install the Lan Manager according to its manual's instructions.

    2) Choose 'Yes' for the following option :

            Import Network Drivers
            Do you have more disks to load?
            <No> <Yes>

    3) Insert the Distribution Diskette into your floppy drive.  The fol-
       lowing message will appear:

            [X] EP200 NDIS Driver Ver 2.00

       Press 'Space Bar' to choose the driver and then choose 'OK'.

    4) Later in the 'Network Drivers' dialogue box, choose the driver shown
       below:

             EP200 NDIS Driver Ver 2.00..........Netbeui

    5) After finishing the installation, use a text editor to edit the fol-
       lowing lines in PROTOCOL.INI under the directory C:\LANMAN:

              [EP200_NIF]
                    drivername=EP200$
                    Lptport=[1|2|3|4] (Specify an LPT port or delete this
                                       line.  If this line is deleted, the
                                       driver will auto detect an LPT port
                                       for you)

       Note that if you have more than one Pocket Ethernet Adapter, you
       should assign an LPT port for the second one; otherwise, it will
       not be detected and used.

    6) Reboot your PC system.


   * Install the NDIS Driver on a LAN Manager-installed machine

    1) Change the current directory to C:\LANMAN and run SETUP.

    2) In the 'Action' menu of 'Microsoft LAN Manager SETUP' window, choose
       'Import Network Drivers'.

    3) Insert the Distribution Diskette into a floppy drive.  The following
       message will appear:

            [X] EP200 NDIS Driver Ver 2.00

       Press 'Space Bar' to choose the driver and then choose 'OK'.

    4) Choose 'View/Modify...' from the 'Action' menu in the "Setup Main
       Window'.

    5) Later, when 'Network Drivers' dialogue box appears, remove the ori-
       ginal Protocol Driver and NDIS Driver on the screen, and select:

             EP200 NDIS Driver Ver 2.00..........Netbeui

       Then, choose <Done>.

    6) After returning to the 'Setup Main Window' screen, choose 'Save' from
       the 'Action' menu.

    7) Choose 'Exit' in the Exit menu to finish the installation and return
       to DOS.

    8) Edit the following lines in C:\LANMAN\PROTOCOL.INI:

              [EP200_NIF]
                    drivername=EP200$
                    Lptport=[1|2|3|4] (Specify an LPT port or delete this
                                       line.  If this line is deleted, the
                                       driver will auto detect an LPT port
                                       for you)

       Note that if you have more than one Pocket Ethernet Adapter, you
       should assign an LPT port for the second one; otherwise, it will
       not be detected and used.

    9) Reboot your PC system.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
