Netware 4.0 Compatibility with Client 4.9 on XP
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.
...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

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.

...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.

I have a brand new system that shipped with Windows XP sp2. I loaded
the netware client for xp 4.9 sp2(188.8.131.5240617). I get a memory dump
and blue screen everytime I boot up. Is there an issue with XP sp2 or
do I need a different client.
we can the same problem with NW 4.90 SP2.
Now we have install the Postfix Variante D. we have now in this time no blue
I think, the variante D cure this problem.

I'm having a lot of troubles to connect an XP Pro workstation with a 4.11

experience with this. The PC is a Pentium 4 2.53 GHZ with Windows XP

D-Link DFE 538TX and a NIC Fast Ethernet PCI Family RTL8139 Realtek. The

We run a database program that is having problems with the Netware
client. Data corruption and performance are a problem.
So, I tested the Microsoft Netware client vs. the Novell client and I am
getting much better performnace from the Microsoft client. The Micorsoft
client is 60 times faster during a 'post data' function. This translates
from 15 seconds for Microsoft to 15 minutes for Novell!
Is there anything I can do to speed up the Novell Client?

I recently fired up an old (1997) Proliant server running Netware
4.1. Amazingly, all drives booted just fine after the drives were
reseated. I can get onto this beast just fine from DOS, but I'm having a
tough time with the XP client.
I downloaded the 4.83 client, as this seemed to be the general
recommendation. I can't get this client to see the server or the tree. I
can't remember what the tree is supposed to be, anyway. I've made sure
at this point that both IP and IPX are loaded and tweaked the IPX so
NLSP is also running. The workstation can pi...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.
