The most recent Novell client for Windows XP (and the whole NT family)
is 4.90 with SP2. Go to
http://download.novell.com/pages/PublicSearch.jsp 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...Client 4.9 sp2 and Windows 2000 upgrade to Windows XP
I have several Windows 2000 computers with Novell Client 4.9 sp2 and I
need to upgrade them Windows XP. I ran the upgrade on one PC and during
the "Installing Network" portion of the upgrade I was asked to load
several programs or files from the Novell CD. I know all these files are
already on the computer. Is there a way to not have to manually tell the
install to look for all these files?
We have always uninstalled the novell client prior to doing a windows os
upgrade. we either copy the setup files onto the c: partition or after
the upgrade use the windows clie...Windows XP & 2000 Client 4.90SP2 Active Window Problem
I am not sure if I am posting this message in the correct forum. I
recently upgraded a Clients NW 6.0 server to NW 6.5 SP3 OES. The server
runs DNS, McAfee Netshield, TapeWare 7 SP7D and Bordermanager 3.8 SP3. This
server also holds some data. The clients are mostly Windows XP SP1 but
there are some Windows 2000 SP4 workstations.
The problem I have is when the users are working along (Doesn't matter what
application they are in) they get kicked out of the active window. They
are still logged into the servers and they can click back into the window

Is it possible to enforce the netware logon process and dispense with the

There are multiple netware account users but single XP workstation user
account. I would like this account to be a "user" one rather than power
user or admin.

I am wondering if there are any modules out there that invokes and
completes remote installs of a backup application on Windows machines? I
am familiar with rdist, but is this compatible with Windows.

...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

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 am trying to run Client services for Netware on WIndows XP so that
I can map a drive to a Novell server without having the Novell Client
installed. I have Client Services for Netware installed, but when I got
to log in a box pops up asking me info about the Preffered server. I
have put in the name the Tree and Context but cannot get connected. Any
ideas or suggestions. Thanks
If I remember correctly from way back when, the MS Client for NetWare was
entirely bindery based, so no eDir type informtion would make any sense to
it. To log in to that server, that s...Windows 2000/XP Client Upgrade
I'm currently running Client 4.90 SP2 Update D and I'm going to upgrade
to 4.91 SP2 Update A. The question I have is do I need to remove the
existing client or can I just install the new client over top. With
Windows 98 this generally caused problems is it different with Windows 2000?
On a couple of test PC's I tried it both ways and it's been to short of
a period to tell for sure but so far it seems to be working fine. The
install went very smooth loading over top.
I usually just use ACU to put the new one straight over the top
Dave Pa...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 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 logon precedes netware client
I am running XP with all the latest service packs/patches/etc, and the
latest netware client, all patched to current.
When the computer boots up, I am presented with the windows logon instead of
the netware client logon. Once I log into the windows client (but before the
gui interface/icons/desktop loads) the netware client appears. It looks
exactly like the typical client login sequence, except the clients are in
reverse order. I have tried all the obvious stuff (reinstalling the client,
etc), but no luck.

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
