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.
...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:
...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

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...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.
On 3/30/2005 Lars.Pfau...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.

I recently installed the auto login for Novell client 4.9 and now whenever
I try to use remote desktop to connect to the computer, it opens and

this that will allow me to keep using the auto login, and yet still be
able to remote desktop into the machine?
