Under LANtastic versions 3.03 and earlier, the LANtastic LANcache program requires the HIMEM.SYS /int15=<xxxx> switch, where <xxxx> is the number of kilobytes of conventional extended memory to be reserved by HIMEM.SYS.

Note that 64 must be added to the number of kilobytes of int15 extended memory desired for LANcache. For example, if you want to allocate 512K of extended memory to LANcache, enter the following line in the CONFIG.SYS file:

device=c:\dos\himem.sys /int15=576


Artisoft states that LANtastic version 4.0 features a switch that allows the use of XMS memory.
