You can use TCP/IP as the only protocol. In fact, you're better off limiting the number of protocols, services and clients that you install so that they don't unnecessarily impact performance. Also, I recommend an upgrade, since Windows 95 is no longer fully supported and you're lagging behind the technology by more than just a few versions.
