Windows for Workgroups 3.11 had a DOS client, which may be available
somewhere on the net. You could try searching p2p services for this as
well, or ask around at companies, friends, etc that have had windows and
LANs for a long time! :-)

The DOS clients loads the NETBEUI stack, but you can also load TCP-IP. I
used to run DOS accounting solutions from a WFW 3.11 "server", and it worked
well, provided you didn't work on the "server" as well. You could even
share files with the full redirector loaded, just make sure you have emm386
loaded and dos=high,umb in config.sys to give your app enough memory.

This is all a long time ago...

You could of course also look at FreeDOS, which will do much the same,
provided your app doesn't require a very specific DOS version. On the other
hand you may rathar want to try some of the great DOSbox emulators out
there - if your machine is big enough.

If you give us more specific details or what you want to achieve, we may be
able to give you more specific answers.
