This may not even be down to Netware, but I am trying to eliminate

client (it came with Intranetware 4.11) and one new machine that has

had a problem with the new machine and we ended up re-installing XP
and fitting a new network card. This seemed to be OK for a few days
we noticed these 3 older PCs started to lock up, with explorer.exe not
responding and we had to switch them off to get them ...Windows XP Netware Client and Netware 4.11 server
I am having some odd problems with this combination. Most of our client
machines are W98 and the login script seems to work just fine. The new
Windows XP Pro computer I am trying to add to the network doesn't seem to
behave the same as my W2K Pro computers using the same Novell Client.
Login times and NetWare rescource access times were very long so I removed
the IP support from the Novell Client, specified the 802.3 frame used by
the 4.11 server and specified its actual network number in the NWLink
protocol settings. That helped one login user: everything worked nicely,

I have Netware 4.1 running on dos with dataflex and windows 98 machines. I
am getting a Windows xp or xp professional machine. Any one know which one
would work best for a dos based database system and would work with novell
4.1 and which client to use. We also have word and excel documents on the
fileserver that are shared by the windows 98 workstations. We would like
the xp or professional to run the dos stuff and also share the word and

We only have a NetWare Server (that will be updated to OES2 at a later
date. We need to have a few Windows XP PCs setup so when I login into
my tree using the Novell Client, that I also log into the local windows

I can't use a generic windows local ID because the local ID needs
adinistrator privileges and I don't want to setup a local ID with no

You need to use nwadmn32.exe. If its on your server it'll be in the
sys:public\win32 directory, if its not there you can download from:

...Netware and Windows XP Home
I understand that the Netware Client is not officially supported on
Windows XP Home. I've also read on this site that much of Netware 6.5's
functionality is available with only a browser on the client. Does this
mean that I no longer need the Netware Client on a Netware 6.5
However, if the Netware Client is still needed, are there any workarounds
for Windows XP Home.
A client is still recommended in most cases.
There are no required workarounds for XP Home because there are no issues.
It is simply not supported because MS does n...Netware backupexec XP workstation
Hi - I have been trying to enable backup of the internal drive of an XP
(sp2) workstatsion to the central backup unit on our 2 server cluster.
The backup software is Backupexec 9.1 and is on Server2 or the system.
I have enabled the TSA software on the XP workstation and it is running
(Started) in the services section of the XP modules.
When I scan for new clients on Server2 via Backupexec it is detected,
but when I try a sample backup of the Workstation through Backupexec I
cannot login to the Workstation TSA from the Backupexec console.

I am unable to synchronize my NDS password with the local XP workstation
password. The option on the workstation login screen is disabled. We
have no NT servers and use client version 4.90. Is this possible with
Netware and XP pro workstations?
Just a guess, but is NMAS Authentication enabled? Check in client
properties on the Advanced Login tab.

Which version of client do u recommend to use with WIN XP SP2 and NETWARE
Using M2, Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: http://www.opera.com/m2/
The latest, version 4.91 with SP2. Try earlier versions only if you
have specific issues with this one. There are also a few post-SP2
patches available you might try in case of any such issues.

...Capturing Netware Printers under XP
Is it possible to capture a Netware SB4.2 printer as a DOS printer with
Windows XP Pro? I can add a Netware printer OK in XP, but I don't see
where it lets you assign an LPT port to it. I need to still print from a
DOS legacy application, and the only thing that it understands is LTP1-3,
not a UNC naming convention.

Novell Client 4.90 SP2
Is there a way I can ENABLE my Windows XP firewall and still be able to
connect to my Netware tree?
Whenever I enable my firewall...even with exceptions...all my Netware
traffic comes to a screaching halt.
You may want to give this a go:
Otherwise, I'd suggest getting a real firewall instead of the MS toy.
