DOS and VNC (sounds like a commercial for vmware, sorry for
Fri Jun 27 08:37:00 2003
Due to the wat MSDos works and the way VNC works, they are verry hard to
combine, specially with MSDos in full-screen mode.
Recently I'm doing some tests with vmware (http://www.vmware.com/) This is
definitly commercial software, definitly no free software.
With vmware-workstation, you can have jet an other machine (a vmware-guest)
inside your own (linux or M$Windows) workstation. If you can take-over this
workstation with vnc, you can access the display of an ms-dos machine.
With vmware-gsx server (and even more expensive, esx server) you can have
the same vmware-guest even on a remote system with display on your own
desktop. For its accessability, comparable with vnc and even have access to
the power switch.
I'm sorry to point you to commercial software trough the maillist of a free
tool but I'd like to share my experience this way. For commercial business,
it can be a solution.
btw: vmware provides trial licenses to test the stuff for 3 months.
