[Please] Run Dosbox on network
 
Hello.
I have installed CentOs as server and trying to run .exe(dos program) there. i have already installed dosbox and works on running the program.

But the problem is how can i run that on network (i use windowsXp)? i store the program and data on CentOs server and the client program runs directly on server (client just create shortcut to network path). I misassumed if we install dosbox on centos it can work, but it didnt for network.

What should i do?

Sorry i newbie on linux

thank you very much

If you're running it on XP, you need to run the XP version.. Linux binaries won't work on Windows. Even if you're storing the data on CentOS, when you run it from the network path it's the XP computer actually running it.

If you have installed DOSbox you will run DOSbox over the CentOS, but not WinXP except may be if the latter runs over the VM. If you want to run some Windows app over Gnu/Linux you will probably want to install Wine for CentOS or Fedora, download it here. Well by the way Wine is directly installable via: $ yum install wine

Hope it helps. Good luck.

Is there other way to make it work?

I will try VM.
Wine doesn't work by the way. The programs we use running under DOS so we use DOSBox.
