  • Hello, managed to get the software loaded. Does anyone know what NIC driver would work in any version of VMWare or other virtual machine?

  • Never mind, figured it out.

    At least tell people what the solution was...

  • It depends on which version of VMWare Workstation or ESX you are using.
  • its probably the pcnet32 ii (10mbp) nic, considering what poor pre-gigabit offerings VMware has to offer
  • Here is what seems to work. This was VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND but was worth it! VMWare so far not a solution but found a way with 86box. This works with 2.15C NonDedicated Netware, hope to test with other versions some day.

    If anyone else gets these working, please let us know! It is quite nice to see running after all these years. Would love to see this in VMWare, but seems unlikely.
