Re: Q: Connecting to remote system.

Hello Fernando,

I have had a bit of experience installing Inferno on a win95 machine, so
hopefully something
I say would be able to help you out.

When you run the emulator what does the default prompt say is the
machine name ?
This is what I put in my /services/cs/db file and it worked.

If you have ppp etc configureed (say for connecting to an ISP) then
Inferno will take what you
entered for your machine name in the ppp/tcp-ip configuration

Now I'm assuming that your services file in your win95/services has all
the port number stuff included.
