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...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.

...Removing Netware Client
I am hoping that someone here can help me.
My wife and I bought a used pc from a local college. It is a Gateway pc
that was running Win98. The college Groupwise and Netware Client on the
machine. I installed XP on the machine and created user accounts etc.
However, the machine only logs in using the Netware login screen.
Luckily the guy who owned the pc did not use a password. When I try to
change the user accounts in the XP control panel, I get the following

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?

Which version of client do u recommend to use with WIN XP SP2 and NETWARE
Using M2, Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: http://www.opera.com/m2/
The latest, version 4.91 with SP2. Try earlier versions only if you
have specific issues with this one. There are also a few post-SP2
patches available you might try in case of any such issues.

Yes. you can use SCMD.
...Removing IPX support Netware 6,Netware 4.11
Does anyone know a way of forcing Netware 4.11 to use IP instead of IPX as
its preferred protocol? After removing IPX support from our netware 6
boxes, our netware 4.11 box can no longer communicate. I would have
thought that it would attempt to use IP instead of IPX... I haven't had a
lot of experience with netware 4.11 boxes.
Thanks in advance,
NW 4.11 can only use IPX for NCP communications. The only way to go

just ways of encapsulating IPX traffic in IP packets and they are no...NetWare 4.11, NetWare for SAA, NetWare 6.5
we have 5 netware 4.11 servers. 2 are in the main office and 3 are in
external offices, connected via vpn (DSL). The 2 servers in the main
office are in tree1, the other 3 servers have there own 3 trees.
One of the servers in the main office runs nw4saa and hostprint and we

Tell me how to get this PoS thing off my system. I do not use any
netware products or services and had to specifically create this
username for the purpose of getting this removed from my system.

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...Windows XP x64 Netware client?
