DOS requester

<networking> An MS-DOS client that provides transparent redirection of printing and file accesses to a network server.

It handles levels 3, 4 and 5 of the Open Systems Interconnect seven layer model.

A DOS requester under Novell NetWare will interface to a network card driver with an ODI interface, and will be either a single executable (netx.exe) or a set of VLMs that are loaded on demand.

In the IBM/Microsoft LAN Manager/SMB world, where the name DOS redirector is more common, there will be an NDIS interface driver and a net.exe executable.
