What is Network Client Administrator?

A Microsoft Windows NT administrative tool for installing client software on client machines. You can use Network Client Administrator to:

You must configure the disk for the particular network interface card (NIC) used by the client machine.
  • Create a set of installation disks to manually install Microsoft Network Client 3.0 for MS-DOS, Remote Access v1.1a for MS-DOS, TCP/IP-32 for Windows for Workgroups, or LAN Manager 2.2c on client machines.
