QRTP6C & Win98 Networking

Okay, here’s what I’ve got.
I have QNX RTP 6.0C (I’m not going to upgrade to 6.1 until I’m sure it’ll
work OK with my system without a full reinstall) and a Win98SE machine.
Each has a NIC, and I have them set up right now so that they can talk to
each other via http, ftp, telnet, etc. Here’s what’s up, though.

I have io-net in rc.local slayed and then restarted with -del900 - but I
have to keep re-enabling it in phlip manually after bootup. I followed the
examples in ipfd.conf.sample that came with ipfilter, but neither work
(using ifconfig or if=…). Help?

I’ve been reading the ipfd.conf.sample file, and I’m lost; the terminology
and layout and all. I have a Win98SE computer connected via NIC to a QRTP6C
computer, which has a dialup connection through ppp0, which is (have you
guessed it yet?) dynamic. So if QNX is 192.168.1.1 and Win98SE is
192.168.1.2, how do I set up the rules and masks? (ie, 192.168.1.1/8? I
don’t understand the /8 …)

Alternately, what would I have to do if the Win98SE machine has a cable
modem connection which I wish the QNX box to share? ipfilter probably won’t
work on the QNX-end, right?

And finally, file sharing. Ah yes. I understand that fs-cifs could be used
to access files on the 98 system, but do I need an SMB server on the 98 box?
If I recall, the helpviewer docs on that say so; what is an SMB server for
98 that I can use? Similarly, I can use Samba on QNX to enable the Win98
box to mount the QNX file system, correct? Is there any single, easy way to
enable file sharing back and forth without loading up a dozen client/server
systems?

phew Thanks everyone! networking still isn’t my strong point. And
please do keep in mind I’m running 6.0C and not 6.1, and that installing 6.1
really isn’t an option at this time.

Hi Charles,

Check to see if your /etc/net.cfg file is populated properly.
If it is…in you rc.local file, after you run io-net try the following:

waitfor /dev/io-net/en0
netmanager -f /etc/net.cfg

For more info on netmanager see consult the helpviewer.

Regards,

Joe
