Remote Access with Win XP and Netware Client 4.9?
I have a few XP laptops I'm trying to get working for home and the
office. The laptops are running Novell Netware Client 4.9, and I got them
working in the office, no problem. They had to be configured for IP and
IPX, and it was a cinch to get going. We use a Netware Server for
Groupwise, and other hosted shared applications.
I figured the same login and password would work remotely, but it
doesn't. Is there anything I have to do special to get this working? I
heard about Remote Access Service (RAS), but I can't find it.
VPN is usually the best app...Login-Problem: Win XP Home -> Client 4.91 -> Netware 4.11
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.

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:

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 4.83SP1 / 4.9 / XP SP1 login aborting
We have been having an issue in the last week with multiple Windows XP
workstations, seen on both Client 4.83SP1 and 4.9. (Still checking to
if workstations with 4.83 SP2 clients are getting it). The user logs
accepts username and password, gets partway through the login process
the point of creating a dynamic local user and copying the roaming
but not to the point of running the login script) and then the login
process aborts. No error message or anything, just flicks back to the
Ctrl-Alt-Delete login banner.
This is on the first login after reboot. ...Netware client 4.9 on XP
I setup a new Dell XP workstation as always. I added a static IP for
added it to the Windows 2000 domain, then installed the client. I
with the 4.8 client but it has 4.9 on it now. When I log into the
workstation it prompts that no domain controller is available. I know
that it is and it is only a problem with this workstation. If I
workstation only it will loging and I have access to all of the
2000 servers. It has to be a client issue and is only with this
workstation. Any ideas??
Try if the problem also exists with SP1:
...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.

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

I installed this latest client on a newly installed XP workstation and
the client fails to see servers, trees, and connot log on. All of my
other clients I have placed this on work, however they were upgrades not
new installs. I simply ran the typical install after placing a new realtk
NIC in the machine. The nic is working with Internet, but I cannot log
onto any servers.
1) If running IP, is SLP configured on the client and server?
2) If running IPX, be sure to specify the IPX Frame-Type.

Yes -- there are some post SP2 updates to the 4.9 client -- they are not
'full release' yet but might be of use here as well.

I've bee...Remove Netware Client 4.9 on Windows XP
I use a unattend.txt to do the install. Then I edit that file and add the
DoRemove=YES and it looks like it works. But at the end I get a error
saying: "The installation was not completed successfully". But if I
reboot then it looks like everything is gone. I need some way of removing
the client from about 800 workstations, and I would like some way of
scripting it. I did a search on CoolSolutions and the knowledgebase and
did not really come up with anything that helped.
