Netmos 9835 and DOS
You’ve all been wondering “How can I get my awesome new computer
running MS-DOS to use a Netmos Parallel/Serial card?” Well, I just did
it myself, so here are a few tips. Once you’ve installed the card,
access the DOS file. It is called NmDOSIn.exe. It will look
like the caption below.
NetMos DOS installer version 1.00.024 dated 19-DEC-2001.
Usage : NmDosIn [options/parameters]By default, NmDosIn displays
-a[dd] = Add NetMos Ports
-c[onfig]: = Configure NetMos Ports
-d[elete] = Delete NetMos Ports
-r[emap] = Remap NetMos ports to legacy ports
-s[ilent] = Silent mode
-t[est] = Test ports (requires external Loop-Back plugs)
-u[nused] = remap to all Unused legacy port i/o base,
without consideration of COM/LPT number
Config Option Parameters
e.g., -config:lpt=spp would set all LPT ports to SPP
e.g., -c:lpt1=spp would set lpt1 to SPP
e.g., -c:lpt1=spp,lpt2=bpp would set lpt1 to SPP and lpt2=BPP
The configuration option parameters are for the parallel port. You
can use these parameters to change the mode that the parallel port uses
and the lpt address it is assigned to. I know these instructions are
crud. If you have questions though, then just ask.
