Client 4.83 Sp3 & Win XP Prof to Netware 4.10 Server
First time of posting, can anyone help me?
We have a Netware 4.10 server (patched to latest) working fine with Win98
Pc's using Novell Client. All runs so fine you wouldn't believe it.
Now trying to add some new workstation PC's, which have Win XP Professional
SP2 on them. I'm using Novell Client 4.83 SP3 (seen that this is best to use
from reading some of the posts for this type of configuration). We can get
the machines to see the server fine, but we seem to have a couple of
problems which I'd appreciate help/comments on.
Periodically when logging...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'm having a lot of troubles to connect an XP Pro workstation with a 4.11
Novell network. All the other workstations use W98, so it's my first
experience with this. The PC is a Pentium 4 2.53 GHZ with Windows XP
Proffesional SP1. The network cards (I installed a second one) are a
D-Link DFE 538TX and a NIC Fast Ethernet PCI Family RTL8139 Realtek. The
server runs Novell 4.11. I installed Netware Client 4.91 SP3 and it
wouldn't log in (giving message "cannot acces the tree"). Changed protocol
from IPX and IP to IPX only. Same result. Entered correct frame typ...netware 4.11 - windows XP
We have been running 4.11 with various workstations.(dos, windows of many
flavors up to and including XP Homeand XP Professsional) Most workstations
use client 4.83 with no problem. Our primary use is a dos based program
using a btrieve engine. Every machine is fundamentally working fine.
I just bought a brand new workstation and downloaded client 4.9. I coudn't
connect to the server. I ugraded to XP Pro and after much effort, I
connected to the server. The problem is when I run the program with the
btreive engine, it always freezes up after a few minutes.
...Client 4.91 SP4 XP and Netware 4.11 / NWADMIN does not start
I have a Netware 4.11 server running with new XP machines (before there were
W2K clients). I am using Client 4.91 SP4 and cannot anymore start NWADMIN32
(from PUBLIC/WIN32). NWADMN95 works.
NWADMIN32 (from PUBLIC/WIN32) still works from an old W2K client.
I tried the W2K compatability mode, but not success. No error message, just
nothing happens after doubleclick on NWADMIN32.
Thanks for help,

On a new Computer - the first XP in the net - I have a little problem
logging in to Netware 4.11. If I stand by the computer while booting and
type in the password when the Novell login screen is shown, everything
works perfect. But when I walk away from the computer or doing other
works while the computer is booting and the login screen is stand for a
time, I enter my passwort, a big "N" is shown an two network cables are
blinking (on the screen) but I get no access to the Server. Does anyone
knows how to solve this problem. Thanks in advance.

As I'll be doing an upgrade and don't want to go around the workstations
twice to configure them.

You can run them but not sure without issues since some of those clients
were not tested against NetWare6.5

They *should* run okay, but there will have been no testing done with
4.6 or 4.7, and ...NWSB 4.11 and client 4.90 for XP- should it work?

My server is running NetWare 4.0 and all of my Windows 98 workstations
(running client 3.32) are able to login perfectly fine. I just got a new
P4 Windows XP workstation though and installed the XP client 4.9 sp2, and
that one will not login at all, it doesn't even show the tress or server
in the advanced tab. Does anyone know how this could be corrected?
Make sure to run the installation with 'Custom' 'IPX Only' options.
Also, v4.9 is not the recommended client for NetWare4.x - you should
uninstall it and install this client:

Yes, this one:

I am using NW Client 4.83Sp3 or 4.90 Sp2 on W2K workstations to connect to
NW 6.5 Sp2 Servers without any problem using only IPX.
But if I use the these clients (IPX only) on WINNT 4.0 workstations I always
have to backrev NWFS.SYS to either the version of 4.83Sp1 or 4.90 without SP
to get things working. If I do so the client is extremely stable and I have
absolutely no issues - but otherwise no UNC-path is working and I only get
the login script mappings to work and nothing else.
Is this a known issue or is WINNT 4.0 not supported by the newest clients?
...Client 4.90 SP1a and Netware 4.11
We are in the process of replacing our old Win98(Client 32)pcs with new
units running Windows XP Pro using Netware client 4.90.0 SP1a. If a user
takes more than about 15 seconds to type in his/her password the
workstation locks(freezes)with a Novell logo and requires a re-boot. If
the user logs in just a few seconds there is no hang. Is there some
timer setting somewhere in the client which we can disable, or lengthen
the time. The server is an old 4.11 server (which will be upgraded in a

We've Got 3 WinXP Pro machines connecting to a 4.11 server. Two work great
using 4.90sp1. One using 4.83 SP2 connects fine, but randomly the NW login
screen will pop up and prompt for a login with the username SYSTEM rather
than last username or a blank field. This occurs after the machine has been
idle for anywhere from a few minutes to hours. No pattern can be found.
Tried upgrading to 4.90sp1a, but that caused other login problems and did
not solve this problem, so I dropped back to 4.83SP2 (with 4.83sp2 the
