The following article contains information on the use of Windows forWorkgroups with third-party products or configurations that have notbeen tested and are not supported by Microsoft.

If the steps or procedures described in this article do not functionproperly, contact the manufacturer of the third-party product for moreinformation or use a supported configuration.
The Wollongong Group's Pathway Runtime and Pathway Access version 1.2,which comes with an RFC-compliant NetBIOS interface, can be used withWindows for Workgroups 3.11. Pathway Runtime is the Wollongong TCP/IPstack, and Pathway Access is a set of TCP/IP utilities provided byWollongong. (The TCP/IP stack is a real-mode stack and operates with NDIS 2drivers.)

This article provides the steps needed to install Pathway Runtime 1.2 onWindows for Workgroups 3.11.
To install Pathway Runtime on Windows for Workgroups, do the following:

WARNING: Although this procedure allows you to run Pathway Runtime withWindows for Workgroups version 3.11, it disables the NetBEUI protocol. As aresult, your machine won't be able to view or access any other Windows forWorkgroups machines or LAN Manager servers on the network that are runningNetBEUI exclusively.

  1. Install Windows for Workgroups with the default NetBEUI transport.
  2. Install Pathway Runtime using PWSETUP.EXE from the setup disk supplied with the Wollongong product.
  3. Complete the installation using the complete NDIS installation option. (For more information, please refer to the Pathway Runtime manual.)
  4. After the installation is complete, change the AUTOEXEC.BAT file so that the NET INIT command is executed immediately before the NDIS command. Replace the PWBIND command with the NET START NETBIND command, which comes before the PWTCP command. Remove the NET START line added by Windows for Workgroups. The following is an example of the AUTOEXEC.BAT file after these changes:
    rem #----------------------- The Wollongong Group --------------------#rem # The following lines are for Pathway Runtime setup. Please DO NOT#rem # modify or remove any of them. If you DO want to, please run the #rem # setup program to modify or deinstall Pathway for DOS.           #SET PATH=C:\PATHWAY;%PATH%c:\pathway\PWCONFIG -N:65net initc:\pathway\ndis -I:5 -D:3net start netbindrem if you are not using the bootp protocol comment out the bootp line.c:\pathway\bootp -dc:\pathway\pwtcpc:\pathway\netbiosrem #----------------------- The Wollongong Group --------------------#						
  5. Make sure that the -I option for the NDIS command matches the IRQ being used by the network card. The -D option refers to the section number in the PROTOCOL.INI file referring to the network card.
  6. Run NETBIOS.EXE after PWTCP.EXE. (NETBIOS.EXE is the RFC-compliant driver.)
  7. Edit the SYSTEM.INI file in the Windows directory and make the following changes:

    1. In the [386enh] section, change the line
    2. In the [network drivers] section, change the lines
                transport=ndishlp.sys,*netbeui          LoadRMDrivers=No								
                transport=ndishlp.sys          LoadRMDrivers=Yes								
    These changes indicate that the real-mode protocol stack will use Lana 0.(Pathway Runtime can use Lana 0 only).
  8. Edit the CONFIG.SYS file and remark out (using the REM command) the entries added by the Pathway Access installation program:
       rem #---------------------- The Wollongong Group ----------------------#   rem #  The following lines are for Pathway Runtime setup. Please DO NOT#   rem #  modify or remove any of them. If you DO want to, please run the#   rem #  setup program to modify or deinstall Pathway for DOS.          #   rem DEVICE=C:\PATHWAY\PROTMAN.EXE /i:C:\PATHWAY\LANMAN   rem DEVICE=C:\PATHWAY\LANMAN\ELNK3.DOS   rem #---------------------- The Wollongong Group ---------------------#						
    The only entry needed is:
  9. Reboot and start Windows.
You can now install Pathway Access by following the instructions providedby Wollongong.
