Token Oddessy 2001
Other than a simple NetBIOS lash up with Win95, I have never set up a TR network, however small. The Lexmark INA prefers TCP/IP, so I had to become a Token Male (Al Gore is Alpha Male).
NOTE: NT 4.0, SP2 and below, has a charming quirk on Slot Numbers. M$ did it 0-7, IBM has always done it 1-8. If you come up with Adapter not found, go HERE
First, I installed a Lanstreamer MC32 (after a Madge Smart
My attempts to enter an IP address into the Network Adapter Address failed. Setup came back and told me it was incorrect. Leave it blank, you can enter it using the method below. (IP Address still is blank after the below, why, I dinna ken, but it works)
This address was chosen from thin air. The important thing is
the server has an IP address lower than the rest of the systems. No gateway
is needed for this small network, because only the 95A and the Optra are
I set my Optra R+ to use IP 192.168.0.2.

Test Network Connection
Since the Optra is maybe 10 feet away at the most, the time is *VERY* short. You can ping yourself and the system on the network.
