No, I'm new here.

Just like when there's football (soccer) in France ;-)

I'm afraid that I didn't found the way to list those variables :-/ 

Please  note  that  I  have  tried all  the  tests  in  DIAGNOSIS.TXT,
evrything  works from a  Linux box,  and "net  view", "net  use", "net
logon" fail on the Win98 box. 

Note that "net logon" claims it is not allowed from a dos console ! 

In the previous  list I sent, you can also  notice that a "getpeername
failed" error appears. 

Best regards.
