Well, as far as I know on Microsoft systems during a dial-up "networking"
connection the user system at some point starts the sequence. 

I believe that duplicating the string of bytes/bits should take care of the
initiation process. I believe that this is the possible scenerio. The Server
(Host) system usually waits for a sequence of bit to determine what protocols
your (User/Client) system is using. Since there is SLIP and there is PPP. I
believe there are some other protocols, but the Server has to know what
connection protocols you want. This could be the case with the Win2K system
your using. I assume that it is the Server (Host) system. I doesn't know what
your C-128 wants,basicly I guess. (With WAVE, your c-128 may be expecting the
Win2K (Host) system knows what you want and proceeds with the process). With
JOS it simply tells the (HOST) what it wants, if I am understanding your

Jolse can clearify what is going on.
