Chapter 20. Networking DOS > Using the Network

Using the Network

After you have installed the appropriate DOS client software for your network, you can proceed to use the network. Using the network can be a complex topic; it includes a number of different commands and utilities all unique to the network you are using. For Novell networks, peruse the user manuals that came with the NOS. You will use commands such as LOGIN, MAP, NPRINT, and FILER to accomplish many network tasks, although you should be sure to review the complete list because you might find many commands useful.

For Microsoft networks, you can accomplish most tasks by using the NET command, which is a sort of hydra (multiheaded) command that can do many different things, from logging you in to the network to mapping network drives to assigning file permissions to others. Typing NET ? gets you started with these commands (although you need to read the documentation on using the NET command for proper details).
