FTP Software's PC/TCP can be used several ways with LAN Manager on an MS-DOS enhanced workstation.
- the "Generic Kernel" protocol driver can be used as a transport for just PC/TCP applications in conjunction with a LAN Manager Transport providing services for the LAN Manager redirector and software
- it can also be used as a LAN Manager transport through FTP's NetBIOS driver
To do this, you need the NDIS driver version of PC/TCP and FTP's NetBIOS driver. The tests on which this article is based were conducted using version 2.2 of PC/TCP, which includes both drivers.
First install the LAN Manager Enhanced Workstation software and use NetBEUI as the transport protocol. If you intend to use PC/TCP as the LAN Manager transport, you can remove the LOAD NETBEUI command from AUTOEXEC.BAT.
Then install the PC/TCP software as instructed in its "Installation and Configuration Guide" under the section describing using an NDIS driver with the generic kernel. If you want to use the PC/TCP kernel as the LAN Manager transport, you need a copy of NETBIND.COM--you can use the version provided with PC/TCP on the "Unsupported Network Software" diskette. You can ignore the section on modifying PROTOCOL.INI.
A sample of the configuration files are given here for using the PC/TCP as a LAN Manager transport. Several important notes are listed at the end of the article.

(*1) This is the packet driver to NDIS converter module and must be loaded.
(*2) This is the configuration module for the PC/TCP Kernel. The interface= parameter in the [pctcp kernel] section of this file must be set to the kernel driver loaded (see below) for proper operation.
(*3) Netbind is used to bind the NDIS driver to the PC/TCP coversion module.
(*4) This is the PC-210 Generic Kernel for DIX Ethernet. IEEEDRV.EXE is used for 802.3 Ethernet and TOKDRV.EXE is used for 802.5 Token Ring.
(*5) This is the PC/TCP NetBIOS driver which must be loaded for RFC 1001 and 1002 compliance to provide a session layer to allow LAN Manager to communicate with the PC/TCP Kernel.
