AOL DIALUP CROSS STACK PROTOCOL BINDING CROSS
cross-binding occurs when one or more network
protocols are bound to multiple clients and/or
services from multiple manufacturers, or when
an adapter is bound unintentionally to multiple
For example, under Microsoft Networking, two
things normally occur:
1) All clients and services bind to all protocols
2) All protocols bind to all the adapters
For example, under Windows 98, a network adapter
will be detected upon installation, and the
following components are installed under Control
Client for Microsoft
After installing LANtastic, the following
will normally appear:
Client for LANtastic
Client for Microsoft
Artisoft LANtastic netbios
File & Printer Sharing for Microsoft.
In the above example, it is important to make
sure that Artisoft LANtastic netbios is NOT
bound to Client for Microsoft. Also, it is
important to make sure that TCP/IP is NOT
bound to Client for LANtastic or File &
Printer Sharing for LANtastic. Bindings are
indicated under the BINDING tab for a particular
LANtastic Cross-bindings may occur when a
network component is manually added, such
as Microsoft netbeui, or software like AOL
is installed . This typically happens under
Windows 95, 98 or ME.
Either of these processes may cause Windows
to ask for files. It is IMPORTANT that no
file should be skipped.
Artisoft files are such as artisoft.inf are
located in the following location:
Windows components and drivers are located
under the appropriate Windows CD folder.
For example, \win95 for Windows 95 and \win98
for Windows 98.
If the Windows 9x or ME CD is not available,
Windows files may also be located
under c:\windows\options\cabs on the local
hard drive (pre-installed Windows machines),
or may be located under c:\windows or c:\windows\system
(assuming Windows is installed for drive c:).
See TN5031 to remove cross-bindings.
