INTERSVR


Type: External (6.0 and later)

Syntax:

INTERSVR [d:][...][/X=d:[...]] [/LPT:[n|address]] [/COM:[n|address]]
[/baud:rate] [/B] [/V]
INTERSVR /RCOPY

Purpose: Starts the Interlink server which allows the transfer of files between InterLink devices and drives (new with DOS Version 6).

Discussion

Before you can use this command, you must first install the INTERLINK.EXE device driver in your CONFIG.SYS file. The following commands should not be used with the InterLink Server: CHKDSK, DEFRAG, DISKCOMP, DISKCOPY, FDISK, FORMAT, SYS, UNDELETE, and UNFORMAT.


NOTE:
Interlink will not redirect network drives, CD-ROM drives, or other devices that use a redirection interface.



Options

/X=drive: - Specifies the letter(s) of drive(s) that will not be redirected. By default, all drives are redirected.

/LPT: [n|address] Specifies the parallel port to be used. You can specify the number of the parallel port (n) or you can specify the address. If you omit both n or address, the Interlink servers will use the first parallel port that it finds connected to the client. If you specify the /LPT option, but omit the /COM option, the server will search only for parallel ports. By default, all parallel and serial ports are scanned.

/COM:[n|address] Specifies the serial port to be used. You can specify the number of the parallel port (n) or you can specify the address. If you omit n or address, the Interlink servers will use the first serial port that it finds connected to the client. If you specify the /COM option, but omit the /LPT option, the server will search only for serial ports. By default, all parallel and serial ports are scanned.

/BAUD:rate Sets the maximum serial baud rate. Valid values for rate are 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, and 115200. The default value is 115200.

/B Displays the Interlink server screen in black and white.

/V Prevents conflicts with a computer`s timer. Use this option if you have a serial connection between computers and one of them stops running when you use Interlink to access a drive or printer port.

/RCOPY Used to copy Interlink files from one computer to another, when the computers are connected with a 7-wire, null-modem serial cable and the MODE command is available on the computer on which you are installing Interlink.

Example

If you want to start the Interlink server and specify that all server drives except drive B be redirected and that LPT2 be used to connect to the client, enter:
intersvr /x=b: /lpt2
