Windows XP Netware client performance / Speed
I've seen many questions posted here regarding running older Netware
servers and Windows servers with both clients installed. Most answers
point to the same set of websites.
I've messed with all the registry hacks, etc. What really made the
difference on my machine is posted below.
BTW: This is WINXP PRO SP2, with NWClient 4.83SP3, Asus Gigabit NIC,
1Gb of RAM and P4 2.6Ghz Hyperthreading on.

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 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 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?

This may not even be down to Netware, but I am trying to eliminate
we have 3 older PCs running Win95 v4.00.95b and the original Netware
client (it came with Intranetware 4.11) and one new machine that has
Home and the Netware client 4.83sp2. At first everything was fine,
had a problem with the new machine and we ended up re-installing XP
and fitting a new network card. This seemed to be OK for a few days
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 ...XP Client and NetWare 5
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.

...Netware Client Issue w/ XP
We have a shared XP computer used by multiple users. When users log on
through the Netware Client, the Windows info under the client advanced
tab seems to apply to a specific Windows user; hence, it prompts you with
a screen asking if you want to change your Windows and Netware password
everytime a new user logs on.....unless you are the Windows user
specified under the advanced/windows tab. How can you make the client
accommodate different Windows/Netware users without a logon fiasco
everytime a different user logs on? Can you disable the Novell client as
the default logon ...XP pro with Netware and windows client
I have a user who used to logon to netware and then was prompted for a
windows password. This worked fine. Recently all of a sudden it is now
going straight to the windows logon. It is not part of a domain but a
workgroup, There are windows 2003 servers in the network but not set up at
all on this machine. Once I logon to windows It goes to netware and asked
to logon to the netware network. I have to choose the server inwhich we
only have one and then logon again. It is backwards to what I was doing

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?

I have currently been given the task of making our Novell Netware 4.11
Server communicate over IP. I have read about the use of Netware/IP to
encapsulate the IPX packets in an IP packet so that this form of
communication can occur, and I have also read about the downfalls of it,
and a move to a more recent server would be the ideal solution, but that
isn't going to happen and I need to get this to work.
Am I right in thinking that you need to set up the Netware Client on the
PC's to connect to the Netware/IP server? Is this possible using the
Client for XP. ...Windows XP and NetWare Client Interoperability
We have several WinXP boxes with the most current service pack as well as
the most current security updates from MS that had issues functioning
with any version of client above 4.83sp1e. The solution for that issue
was to install the 4.83sp1e client. However, now many of the boxes we
fixed already as well as some additional ones aren't responding to this
fix. The login scripts run perfectly and it appears that everything is
fine, but when you try to access any of the mapped drives that point to
NetWare volumes, explorer.exe locks up and you have to shutdown before

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:
