Additional info:  I have since found that I do not even have perform
simultaneous access on client and server; the problem simply happens more
repeatably then.  I sometimes lose connectivity on the client even when it is
the only thing running an active foreground app (the database app in question)

2002-11-18 12:10 Oh, I also de-overclocked my Server back down to 1400Mhz, it's
rated speed - I had been overclocked to 1540Mhz with no ill effects, but wanted
to eliminate any bogus sources of problems that I might have caused.  Stated
problem still persists.

Comment 4 Nick Mumbach 2002-12-04 02:21:22 UTC
Has there been any activity on this issue?  I am researching potential server
replacement options for my client base currently running WIN9x, as each
successive version of Windows has less and less support for DOS apps ...

Comment 5 Nick Mumbach 2003-03-19 23:07:55 UTC
Additional experimentation points to a problem with a particular PC card NIC on
my laptop;  repeated experiments with other NICs and other client computers do
NOT exhibit the problem reported initially.  I already have other incidents
outstanding for the PC card in question; this particular bug report can be excised
