                                  INTERSVR
 
Starts the Interlnk server.
 
Syntax
 
    INTERSVR [drive:[...]] [/X=drive:[...]] [/LPT:[n|address]]
    [/COM:[n|address]] [/BAUD:rate] [/B] [/V]
 
To copy Interlnk files from one computer to another, use the following
syntax:
 
    INTERSVR /RCOPY
 
Parameter
 
drive:
    Specifies the letter(s) of the drive(s) that will be redirected. By
    default, all drives are redirected.
 
Switches
 
/X=drive:
    Specifies the letter(s) of drive(s) that will not be redirected. By
    default, all drives are redirected.
 
/LPT:[n|address]
    Specifies a parallel port to use. The n parameter specifies the number
    of the parallel port. The address parameter specifies the address of the
    parallel port. If you omit n or address, the Interlnk server uses the
    first parallel port that it finds connected to the client. If you
    specify the /LPT switch and omit the /COM switch, the server searches
    only for parallel ports. By default, all parallel and serial ports are
    scanned.
 
/COM:[n|address]
    Specifies a serial port to use. The n parameter specifies the number of
    the serial port. The address parameter specifies the address of the
    serial port. If you omit n or address, the Interlnk server searches all
    serial ports and uses the first port that it finds connected to the
    client. If you specify the /COM switch and omit the /LPT switch, the
    server searches only for serial ports. By default, all parallel and
    serial ports are scanned.
 
/BAUD:rate
    Sets a maximum serial baud rate. Valid values for rate are 9600, 19200,
    38400, 57600, and 115200. The default value is 115200.
 
/B
    Displays the Interlnk server screen in black and white. Use this switch
    if you have problems reading your monochrome monitor.
 
/V
    Prevents conflicts with a computer's timer. Use this switch if you have
    a serial connection between computers and one of them stops running when
    you use Interlnk to access a drive or printer port.
 
/RCOPY
    Copies Interlnk files from one computer to another, provided that the
    computers are connected with a 7-wire, null-modem serial cable and that
    the <MODE> command is available on the computer where you are installing
    Interlnk.
 
Related Commands
 
For more information about Interlnk, see <INTERLNK> and <INTERLNK.EXE>.

                              INTERSVR--Notes
 
Specifying the order of drives
 
Interlnk redirects drives in the order you specify. The first server drive
specified is redirected to the first available client drive, the second
server drive specified is redirected to the second available client drive,
and so forth.
 
Redirected devices
 
Interlnk does not redirect network drives, CD-ROM drives, or any other
device that uses a redirection interface.
 
Remote copy procedure
 
To copy Interlnk files from one computer to another by using the /RCOPY
switch, you must connect the 7-wire, null-modem serial cable to the
computers' serial ports.
 
Using a serial mouse with Microsoft Windows
 
If you are using a serial mouse with Microsoft Windows and you start the
Interlnk server while Windows is running, you need to specify either the
/LPT switch or a /COM switch that designates a COM port other than the one
the mouse is using. For example, if the serial mouse uses COM1 and you are
using a parallel connection, specify the /LPT switch to prevent Interlnk
from scanning all COM ports.
 
Using Interlnk in a task-switching or multitasking environment
 
If you start the Interlnk server in a task-switching or multitasking
environment, task switching and key combinations that switch you out of your
current task are disabled. To restore these functions, quit the server.
 
Limitations on using INTERSVR with other commands
 
The following commands do not work with the Interlnk server:
 
    CHKDSK         FORMAT
 
    DEFRAG         MIRROR
 
    DISKCOMP       SYS
 
    DISKCOPY       UNDELETE
 
    FDISK          UNFORMAT
 
                                      ***

                             INTERSVR--Examples
 
Suppose you have two computers that each include drives A, B, and C. To
start the Interlnk server and specify that server drive C be redirected to
client drive D, server drive A be redirected to client drive E, and server
drive B be redirected to client drive F, type the following command:
 
    intersvr c: a: b:
 
To specify that all server drives except drive A be redirected and that LPT2
be used to connect to the client, type the following command:
 
    intersvr /x=a: /lpt2
 
                                      ***
