Interlnk does not work properly with the Xircom Parallel Port Multiplexor (PPX) unless it is on the logical port assigned the hardware interrupt. Since only one of the two logical ports can be assigned the hardware interrupt and the Xircom Pocket Adapter must be on the port assigned the hardware interrupt, you cannot use both INTERLNK.EXE and the Xircom Pocket Adapter at the same time.


By setting up a MS-DOS 6 multiple-configuration menu, you can start your computer with the appropriate configuration for either the Xircom Pocket Adapter or Interlnk.

NOTE: This information also applies to Intersvr, which also requires the hardware interrupt.
