LAN Server* 4.0 DOS\Windows* Configuration
This document explains how to install network drivers for an
EtherExpress 16, 16TP, 16C, FLASH, or MCA adapter on a IBM's LAN
Server 4.0 DOS\Windows workstation.
Before you start
You must configure and test the EtherExpress 16 adapter with SOFTSET.EXE
before installing the LAN Server client software. Boot the workstation
with a DOS disk, and then insert the EtherExpress16 LAN Adapter
Configuration and Driver disk into drive A. At the DOS prompt type:
- Select "AUTOMATIC SETUP" to let SoftSet configure the EtherExpress 16
adapter to work in your computer, or select "MANUAL SETUP" if you want
to designate which interrupt and I/O address you want the EtherExpress
16 to use.
- Select "RUN DIAGNOSTICS" from the main menu to test the configuration
you have selected. If the EtherExpress 16 adapter fails diagnostics, it
will not function correctly under LAN Server 4.0.
NOTE: SoftSet is a DOS program and will not run in Windows.
Hints & Tips
- Insert the LAN Server 4.0 DOS/Windows client disk 1 into drive A
- Specify the directory you want to install the DOS LAN requester
files into, the default is:
- From the Select Network Adapter menu, choose:
Intel EtherExpress 16 or 16TP adapter
- Enter in a unique Machine Name for your workstation.
- Enter in your User Name.
- Enter the Domain Name that your workstation is attached to.
- Specify which DOS LAN Services you want from the list:
Graphical User Interface: Install GUI
Peer Services: Install Peer Services
Windows Support: Install Windows Support
Protocol Driver : IBM* NetBEUI
- Verify the listed options are correct, then press "ENTER" to
- Verify the EtherExpress adapter settings are correct, and press
"ENTER" to continue:
||0x200 - 0x370|
|I/O Channel Ready
||Late, Early, Never|
||Twisted Pair (TPE)
||TPE, AUI/DIX, BNC/COAX|
CAUTION: Do not set the I/O Channel Ready to "EARLY" or you may damage
the EtherExpess adapter.
- Exit install and restart your computer by pressing "ENTER"
after the installation is complete
- If the EtherExpress 16 adapter is failing to load the driver or
connect to the network, verify that the I/O address and/or Interrupt
being used by the EtherExpress adapter is not being used by any other
device in your workstation like a sound card, faxmodem, scanner, tape
backup, serial ports, parallel ports, etc.
Look at the documentation or setup programs for the other installed
adapters in your computer to verify what I/O address and Interrupts
they are using. Some sound cards use multiple interrupts and I/O
addresses. For example, a typical sound card will use an I/O address of
220 and IRQ 5 for the sound port and an I/O address of 330 and IRQ 11
for the MIDI/Joystick port.
- Error message "340E Mac Driver not installed-- Protman open error"
This error message occurs when the workstation tries to load EXP16.DOS
in the CONFIG.SYS before PROTMAN.DOS. Edit the CONFIG.SYS to load
PROTMAN.DOS before EXP16.DOS. See sample CONFIG.SYS below.
- Error message "330E Mac driver not installed-adapter not found or
This error message also occurs when the parameter "IOADDRESS=" is used
in the PROTOCOL.INI to incorrectly specify the adapter I/O address. The
IOADDRESS= parameter must be set to match the I/O address of the
EtherExpress 16 adapter. For example, if the EtherExpress 16 was set at
I/O address 300, the line should read:
