  • This thesis discusses an approach whereby Microsoft's MS OS/2 is provided with a means of running the Department of Defense's Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). This is done by developing a Packet Protocol Device Driver. This device driver complies with the Packet Driver Specification from FTP Software Inc. and with the Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) from 3Com and Microsoft Corporations. This packet protocol device driver co-resides with other protocol device drivers and shares one medium access control (MAC) device driver as defined in the NDIS. With the successful implementation of the packet protocol device driver, an existing Microsoft MS-DOS version of a TCP/IP package was ported and with minor modifications recompiled to run under MS OS/2. This method allows users to retain utility and use of the OS/2 LAN Manager, a networking strategy provided within MS OS/2.
