new to dos prompt
To begin, thanks for taking the time to read this.
I recently came a cross a guy using DOS to do i would like to know how to do. The only thing i know how to do with DOS is VIEW, CREATE and DELETE directories. If any could direct me to a website, or post a tutorial on DOS networking. Such as accessing others computers on a network. I would be much appreciative.

and what exactly is it that you would like to do?
from the sounds of it, your refering to the NET command...
Not completely sure.. haven't used it in a while....
If I'm right, I'll post again.. if not, I'll probably post anyway...
<Can you say post whore?>

Microsoft has slowly been trying to get rid of DOS, but it is just to handy...I routinely use it at work....for networking purposes, as well as "batch" files for login scripts in a Microsoft enviroment. If you learn Linux, it is like DOS on steriods. You can preform much more complex solutions that you can only dream about in Microsoft (or pay thousands of dollars to purchase a product that will do the same thing).

You might want to consider this: as ter450 said, MSDos is slowly being pushed out commision - that has at least one advantage: MS-Dos books are practically given away. Visit your local bookstore, or possibly second-hand bookstore (for the Dutch readers, try "De Slegte," for example) and browse. I picked up an old but 500 pages tutorial for something close to 5 dollar, brand new... Give it a try.
And by the way, I'm happy to see you take interest in learning DOS. Good luck!
I wish to express my gratitude to the people of Italy. Thank you for inventing pizza.

Dos have is own help! Just type "help" at the prompt and you gonna have alot of help... The help for DOS on Windows is not that good like it was in the original DOS but still can do the trick.

reply to matty_cross
I believe that it is the net command. more specifically accessing ports. I have programs that allow me to find open ports from ip addresses. I just want info on how to get on those ports and what i could once on.
reply every one......
