1. Introduction:

   These Ethernet NDIS drivers conform to 3Com/Microsoft Network Driver In-
   terface Specification v2.0.1 (Final 1990-10-8). It supports many network
   applications, such as Microsoft LAN Manager for DOS, SUN PC-NFS, Banyan
   VINES for DOS workstations, Sitka 10NET and Wollongong Pathway Access.


2. Contents of the Subdirectory:

      EP200.DOS       The NDIS driver for DOS.

      EP200.OS2       The NDIS driver for OS/2.

      PROTOCOL.INI    The prototype of the final PROTOCOL.INI, which stores
                      the configuration and binding information for all pro-
                      tocols 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 instal-
                      lation.


3. Installation

   First, install the Pocket Ethernet Adapter on your PC system by following
   the procedure in Pocket Ethernet Adapter User's Manual, then skip to the
   related section for your specific network application to continue the NDIS
   driver installation.


3.1 SUN PC-NFS Installation

   * Installing on a DOS Workstation

     1) If PC-NFS has not been installed yet, follow the instructions in
        PC-NFS installation manual to install PC-NFS. Or, change the current
        directory to C:\NFS and run NFSCONF.

        Choose 'Configure an Ethernet network connection' when it appears
        during installation.

     2) Choose 'NDIS' from 'Select the network adapter you will use for
        PC-NFS' item.

     3) When finishing the installation, choose 'Exit' to return to the
        DOS prompt.

     4) Copy EP200.DOS to the C:\LANMAN subdirectory.

     5) Edit CONFIG.SYS by adding the following line:

           DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\EP200.DOS

        between

           DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\PROTMAN.SYS
           DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\NFS-NDIS.SYS.

      6) Edit C:\LANMAN\PROTOCOL.NFS as follows:

         a) Replace 'your-mac-module' with 'EP200_NIF'in the file.
            Note that there are two 'your-mac-module' to be changed.

         b) Replace 'YOURMAC$' with 'EP200$'.

         c) Replace the line 'option 1 = value 1 etc' with the desired
            option or delete it.

         The following is an example of the edited PROTOCOL.NFS :

              [protocol manager]
                    drivername=PROTMAN$
              [EP200_NIF]
                    drivername=EP200$
                    Lptport=[1|2|3|4] (This option is to assign a used
                                       print port if you have more than
                                       one Pocket Ethernet Adapter.  If
                                       you have only one adapter, you
                                       can delete this line.)
              [NFS-NDIS]
                    drivername=NFSLINK$
                    bindings=EP200_NIF

      7) Rename 'PROTOCOL.NFS' to 'PROTOCOL.INI'.

      8) Edit AUTOEXEC.BAT by adding the line 'C:\LANMAN\NETBIND' before
         'PRT *'.

      9) Reboot the PC system.


3.2 Banyan VINES Installation

   * Installing on the First DOS Workstation

     1) Create a bootable DOS diskette with DOS 3.1 or above.

     2) Copy all files under the \NDIS directory on the 'Master Disk' to
        the boot diskette.

     3) Copy EP200.DOS and PROTOCOL.INI to the boot diskette.

     4) Edit PROTOCOL.INI as follows:

              [protocol manager]
                    drivername=PROTMAN$
              [VINES_XIF]
                    drivername=NETBEUI$
                    bindings=EP200_NIF
              [EP200_NIF]
                    drivername=EP200$
                    Lptport=[1|2|3|4] (This option is to assign a used
                                       print port if you have more than
                                       one Pocket Ethernet Adapter.  If
                                       you have only one adapter, you
                                       can delete this line.)

      5) Type 'PCCONFIG' at the DOS prompt, and the configuration window is

         Ethernet' as the driver.

      3) Copy EP200.OS2 and PROTOCOL.INI from the distribution diskette
         to the install directory.

              [destin_drive:]\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH
              (e.g. C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH)

      4) Change the following line in your CONFIG.SYS

            DEVICE=C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH\<filename>

         to:

            DEVICE=C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH\EP200.OS2

       5) Edit PROTOCOL.INI under C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH as fol-
          lows:

              [protocol manager]
                    drivername=PROTMAN$
              [VINES_XIF]
                    drivername=NETBEUI$
                    bindings=EP200_NIF

                    drivername=EP200$
                    Lptport=[1|2|3|4] (This option is to assign a used
                                       print port if you have more than
                                       one Pocket Ethernet Adapter.  If
                                       you have only one adapter, you
                                       can delete this line.)

       6) Change directory to VINES and execute PCCONFIG to configure your
          PC network, if necessary.

       7) Shut down OS/2 system and reboot your PC system.

       8) At the OS/2 prompt, change directory to VINES and run BAN.
