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 
the computer will respond again. (No, this is not just the delay issue. 
That has been ruled out.)

Any assistance with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I have not seen this and have used this combination.

What happens if you install 4.9sp1a (without NMAS)?

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/IP Client for Windows XP
Hello 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 Netware Client and DOS programs
Can anyone tell me the earliest client that works with Windows XP and where I can find a copy? I upgraded to 4.91 and it will not allow me to run one of my old DOS programs. I uninstalled it and it works just fine from XP alone (without the client). I then uninstalled 4.91 and installed client 4.83 SP2 and I have the same result. I guess I need to keep going back in time to the first client that works with XP. I run 3 old DOS programs, Wordstar 7.0 LAN, Foxpro 2.0 LAN and Borland Sprint. Only Sprint refuses to run, despite all kinds of machinations. Any help would be app...

Netware Client on MS Windows XP X64
I have a new AMD Athlon 64 Processor PC with MS Windows X64 edition installed on a nVidia nForce4 chipset motherboard. The machine seems to be operating properly in the network and I can browse the internet through a router. I have installed the NetWare client 4.91. The client does not load properly, in the files do not seem to be where the program expects them to be, and therefore the client fails to load on startup. Is there a work around? Is there a Win XP X64 version of the NetWare client? What are my options other than installing Win 32? Thank you for your time and ass...

Larry On Thu, 05 Aug 2004 15:27:27 GMT, wrote: >Is there an update/apgrade for NW5 that will install a client on Windows >XP box? The most recent Novell client for Windows XP (and the whole NT family) is 4.90 with SP2. Go to and select Novell Client as the product and Windows XP as the platform. If you have only NW 5.x servers, however, you may find 4.83 with SP3 easier to install. Unfortunately, I can...

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. Thanks, Greg Marcom Technical Support Administrator Purdue University ...

I could never log onto ...
