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. - Jerry Fernando J.
