Thanks for the quick reply.
We've had the software installed and working on computer #2, but in order to communicate w/ the cnc machine in the shop we must use computer #1. It is linked to the shop via serial cable. In order to download data to the cnc machine we need a "program number" which is issued by computer #1 in the last step of the software proccess thru the printer (thus the function of the dongle). With the app running on computer #2 we must transfer data to a floppy disk and load this information into the software on computer #1 and complete that last step which gives us a printout w/ the "program number".
We expected to eliminate the use of the floppy by networking. As it stands now, we can transfer the data over the network from compter #1 to #2 but it is still necessary to sit down at computer #1 and run the app to get the needed "program number".
I would assume having had the app installed and working on computer #2 that no settings need to be changed for it to work when accessed over the network.
One further question. I'm not particularly adept working with dos (only became involved with computing after W95 was released). After checking some of the software docs today I'm not certain that the app runs in a window. Minimum system requirements specifiy dos5.0 or 6.0 (6.0 or higher prefered). The installation cd is labled for "Windows 95". The app is launched from an icon on the W95 desktop. This afternoon I booted the box in dos and launched the app. It loaded as usual but ran quite slow.
Can you tell from the above information if the app normally runs in a window. I've been told that if it is not there may be no way to network as we'd like.
