Networking FreeDOS - ODI

The Open Data-Link Interface (ODI), developed by Apple and Novell, serves the same function as Microsoft and 3Com's NDIS to provide Network connectivity. Originally Novell combined the driver and protocols together in one monolithic program, but in 1991 developed the ODI driver specification, which, with modification, is still in use today. This allows a single hardware specific driver to be written and used with multiple different protocols. Most manufacturers will write ODI drivers and Novell have many available for download. Configuration is fairly straightforward using a text file called NET.CFG. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Copyright (C) 2007 Ulrich Hansen, Mainz (Germany), modified 2010 by W.Spiegl.
