I'm trying to install and use the Arachne broswer under DOS (6.22). I've DOS installed on VirtualBox VM (5.2.34) under Linux Ubuntu (4.15.0-88-generic #88-Ubuntu).
I'm in trouble in configuring network and TCP stack on the configured DOS virtual machine.
I've tried to configure the network with all kinds that virtualbox allows, but I think that the problem is that I am not able to remember how to configure the network under DOS.
I tried to install NE2000 or NE2100 or 3C509 drivers, but I'm not able to individuate the IRQ and port where the virtual card replies. I've tried a lot of IRQ and port combinations, but nothing runs: PORT 280,300,320,340,360 IRQ 3,4,5,7,9,10,11.
NE2000 and NE2100 drivers replies always: "My Ethernet Address is FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF" (where FF:..:FF should be the MAC address).
3C509 driver replies: "No 3c509 found. Use a different id_port value. Default is 0x110."
Furthermore I'm not more able to use/configure NETBEUI.
Do somebody has a good solution!?
