I am pretty sure it is Warp4, but how can one see this? Is there a
function like ControlPanel/System on Windows where this can be viewed?

I can bring up system setup all right. The icons available in this
window are (in random placement on the window):
- MPTS Network Adapters and Protocol Services
- DDNS Configuration
- DHCP Monitor
- Scheme Palette
- Solid Color Palette
- Mixed Color Palette
- Font Palette
- Create Utility Diskettes
- Add Programs
- System Clock
- UPM Services
- Hardware Manager

My dilemma is that I have not installed the OS/2 myself at all. I was
given the VHD file with the OS/2 installation already done and I
"just" want to complete it with the network share ability for testing
some aoutomation software that has to run (on Windows) against the
OS/2 target system. The interaction is via a shared folder on a
Windows machine (drive letter in OS/2 and a UNC path in Windows).
if I go to MPTS Network.... in System Setup I can select an item named
"TCP/IP configuration" and use the Configure button.
Then I can configure "Network interface parameters" where the IP
address is listed (192.168.0.7).
I also can ping the OS/2 guest on this address from the XP machines,
so definitely TCP/IP is running.
In LAN Adapter and Protocol Configuration there is a list of Protocols
in the upper right of the dialogue. It lists (in this order):
- NetWare NetBIOS Emulation over IPX
- IBM IEE 802.1
- IBM OS/2 NETBIOS
- IBM Netware Requester Support
- IBM OS/2 NETBIOS OVER TCP/IP
- IBM TCP/IP
In the "Current Configuration" ox in the lower left part it lists:
- Digital Semcon. DC21X4-based Eternet Adapter....
- 0 - IBM OS/2 NETBIOS OVER TCP/IP
- 0 - IBM TCP/IP
I have made a few screenshots of the dialogs and attached these, hope
they will come through....
And as far as I am concerned the Netware items are not needed, there
is no Netware used where we will use our software...
