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...Win2k SP4 & Office XP & Netware Client
We are having an issue with Windows 2000 SP4 and Office XP and the Netware
Ever since we upgraded our Windows 2000 computers to SP4 the Office XP
shortcut bar has become slow and we are recieving a lot of complaints
about it. This problem does not exist with Windows 2000 SP 0,1,2,3. But
once you go to SP4, the shortcut bar slows down. Opening Word or Excel
from START/Program Files and the app comes up immediately. Use the
shortcut bar and you got a 10 to 15 second delay before the app loads.
I've pretty much traced it to the Netware client. 4.83 and 4.90...XP Prof & Eudora 5.2 & netware Client

New setup XP Prof with Netware 4.83 Sp2 or 4.9 with Pack A
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
There is a lot of over-head in XP.
Have you tried doing any clean-up, disabling services, applying tweaks
posted thoroughout this forum, etc.?

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,

We are running a Windows application at a school from the network.
EXE file is 8MB in size and is pulled down by the client each time the
applicaiton is ran. On new computers with Win2k/XP this takes about
10-20 seconds. On old computers running Win95/98 this takes about 5
seconds or less. We are running 4.90 and 3.40 of course. Any idea
this is so much slower, I assume this has something to do with the way
the clients work on the different OSes.

Any recent news to report on using the Netware client (on a 3.2 ipx network)
with Windows XP Home? I've done it before with success, but XP Home, of
course, isn't made for networking with Netware.
I could build up a test rig at home and give it a try, but does anyone know
of any unforseen pitfalls that might have come up via recent Windows updates
(which might have broken things that allowed Netware client for Windows to
work with XP Home in the past)?

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.

right hand task bar of these work stations saying "limited or no

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
