Sitka has confirmed that TOPS network versions 2.x does not work properly with MS-DOS 5.0.

Sitka recommends an upgrade to TOPS network versions 3.x or later for proper operation with MS-DOS 5.0.


Sitka technical support states that TOPS versions 2.x were designed to be compatible with MS-DOS 3.1, and will not be updated to be compatible with MS-DOS 5.0. With TOPS versions 2.x, booting to an MS-DOS prompt may be successful, but MS-DOS 5.0 commands such as COPY will not work properly.
