NETX version 3.31 and earlier require MS-DOS 5.0 or earlier--it does
not run with MS-DOS 6.0 or 6.2 unless you use SETVER.EXE to trick it.
Since SETVER tells NETX that the MS-DOS version is 5.0, NETX reports
the MS-DOS version as 5.0.
This behavior could be a problem for network administrators who
configure their systems to map to specific directories for different
versions of MS-DOS, depending on the version reported by NETX. For
example, suppose that machines running MS-DOS 3.3 are mapped to
Y:\DOS\V3.30 and machines running MS-DOS 5.0 are mapped to
Y:\DOS\V5.00. In this example, when you use SETVER to tell NETX you
are running MS-DOS 5.0, you are logged onto the Y:\DOS\V5.00
NOTE: Novell's NETX.EXE version 3.32 is compatible with MS-DOS 6.x. The
newer version of NETX correctly reports the MS-DOS version and correctly
maps the directory. To obtain a new version of NETX.EXE contact Novell.
If you are using IPX, you can find the full NETX version number by using
the NETX /I command.
