I have a Windows 95 pc on my network at work. The pc runs some software
which operates in a dos window, which will only run in fullscreen mode.
I need to set up remote operation of this pc from a number of Win2000 &
XP pcs on the network. I have tried RealVNC/WinVNC to no avail as they
will not display the dos window in fullscreen mode, only if it is in a
window. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get around this
problem please? And please don't say 'upgrade from Win95' as this is not
an option sadly!

TIA
