NetWare Client on Win 2k & XP

We are just starting to use 2K Pro & XP Pro on our desktops. We have a
4.0 domain across a WAN. You got your PDC at corporate and BDC's
spread out
across the company at each location. Also have member servers setup
Exchange 5.5. Each location also has NetWare servers. My location has
NetWare 5 servers (sp6a). It was my understanding in order for
authentication to occur on a NT network using NT / 2k Pro / XP Pro
accounts must be setup. The domain admin setup the account. I made
sure the
computer named matched the name he gave when setting up the computer

The NetWare logon screen comes up, but as opposed to automatically
synchronizing with the NT account, I am prompted to logon locally.
Should be
this happening? Do I need an account on the local computer that will
sync up
with the NetWare one? Just need a document or article that will answer

Sadly, it took almost 10 years before it was recognized that Win 9x is
of crap. Thanks.

Client 4.83 Sp3 & Win XP Prof to Netware 4.10 Server
Hi Guys 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 client 4.83/4.90. 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...

problem between xp home/netware client 4.83sp2 & win95 clients
This may not even be down to Netware, but I am trying to eliminate certain factors. we have 3 older PCs running Win95 v4.00.95b and the original Netware 32 client (it came with Intranetware 4.11) and one new machine that has WinXP Home and the Netware client 4.83sp2. At first everything was fine, then we had a problem with the new machine and we ended up re-installing XP Home and fitting a new network card. This seemed to be OK for a few days when 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, l...

Netware 4.1 windows xp or xp professional and which client
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 excel files. Thank You, Seth XP Professional is the one designed for networking environment. Although, I've seen reports that XP Home wor...

Netware client setup on Win XP Pro

I'm trying to configure Novell Client 4.83 on a Wnidows XP machine connecting to Novell 4.11 Basically I am trying to avoid having to setup every user as a local account, and simply have the client login, skipping the login to local account bit. I have ben referred to >1) Configure the PC to use "AutoAdminLogon" - > >(Each User uses the same local account) and this seems to be the correct solution, I am tryi...

Netware 2k/XP client performance is slower than Win9x?\
We are running a Windows application at a school from the network. The 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 why this is so much slower, I assume this has something to do with the way the clients work on the different OSes. Thanks, Greg Greg, 2000/XP tend to be hogs compared to Windows 9x. Just look at the number of services...

Netware client & XP "Home" edition
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)? [Unfortunately, I dismantled my prior workstation that had XP Home & Netware Client for Windows on it, so I no lo...

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. betaphiwoozy, VPN is usually the best app...

Netware 4.10 & Win XP SP2
Can anybody please help with a problem we seem to have? We have recently added a couple of WinXP Prof. SP2 work stations using Novell Client 4.83 SP3 to our Novell 4.10 network. The server has been fully patched. We now seem to be experience a continual message appearing on the bottom right hand task bar of these work stations saying "limited or no connectivity". The workstation seem to function correctly as we can see the 4.10 server & applications seem to run fine. Why is this message happening? How can we stop it? Any suggestions would be appreciated. ...

disab le the ability to cancel a login on Win XP pro with Netware Client
I am posing this question to the discussion group. How can we through Novell 5.1 with a Win XP 4.9 client require a login with a user name and password rather than establishing a BIOS password. Thank you in advance. Also is there a specific location where I would be able to acces this information? Gary Hawk H-L School Bascom, Ohio Gary, Since the Windows NT security model requires you to logon locally or via a domain you need to authenticate to a Windows account in addition to eDirectory(NDS). Its usually recommended to sync the account names and passwords between Wind...
