DLLPKT is not a TSR packet driver, but instead it spawns a program needing a
packet driver after installing a basic packet driver simulation at INT 61.
After termination of the subprogram, all portals left open by the program
are closed and all other resources used by DLLPKT are returned to the OS.

If, for example, you want to use SOSS to make some disk or file services
available via NFS, you simply start it with `DLLPKT SOSS /r'.

The program is released under the GNU public license version 1, of course
without any warranty. It works most of the time, but on some systems it
occasionally stops transmitting packets every now and then. I was unable
to fix this bug. (That's why it took me so long to release it...)

The distribution comes in two flavours:
DLLPKT.ZIP: Contains the executables, sources and user manual. This is all
you need if you simply want to use it.
DLLPKSRC.ZIP: Idem, but also contains REPORT.PS, an excerpt of the report
on my practical training period at the Measurement and Control section of
the department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University, of which
DLLPKT was one of the results.

For now, the files are available by anonymous ftp from: (

The current version of DLLPKT does not work in conjunction with Desqview or
Windows. A Desqview aware version is available on request. A Windows version
does not exist at this moment, but integrating it with VPKT would be a

For those of you who are still a happy owner of a VaxMate, suggestions for
adapting DLLPKT to the Vaxmate are also available on request. Since I don't
have access to any VaxMate machine, the suggested adaptation was never tested.

Just hoping to be of some use to someone out there,

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
