The following section contains miscellaneous technical information about PCShare. It is primarily of interest to experienced system administrators only.
The tar archive “HELIOSDIR/etc/pcscompat/pcapps25.tgz” contains the PCShare 2.5 client compatibility files that are needed for connecting PCShare MS-DOS and Windows 3.x clients. If you need PCShare 2.5 client compatibility, execute the following commands as “root ”:
# cd /usr/local/helios # bin/stop-helios now # gunzip < etc/pcscompat/pcapps25.tgz | tar xvf - # bin/prefrestore etc/pcscompat/pcsdossrv.prefs # bin/start-helios -i
All files will be extracted into the “HELIOSDIR/public” folder.
All DOS/Windows PCShare clients require a valid static
or DHCP client TCP/IP configuration.
The automatic PCShare 2.5 TCP/IP assignment for DOS/Windows 3.x clients is not supported anymore.
