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

I can't use a generic windows local ID because the local ID needs

IBM OEM Microsoft Windows XP And Windows XP SP1 are both reported to contain
a default passwordless administrative account.
Reportedly, during the installation process of IBMs OEM version of Windows
XP and Windows XP SP1, the process automatically creates an administrator
account and fails to set a password for it. The user is not made aware of
the account during installation.
Users installing this version of Microsoft Windows may fail to properly
secure this account, allowing for local attackers to gain administrative
privileges. Network access to accounts without passwords ...Netware and Windows XP Home
I understand that the Netware Client is not officially supported on
Windows XP Home. I've also read on this site that much of Netware 6.5's
functionality is available with only a browser on the client. Does this
mean that I no longer need the Netware Client on a Netware 6.5
However, if the Netware Client is still needed, are there any workarounds
for Windows XP Home.
A client is still recommended in most cases.
There are no required workarounds for XP Home because there are no issues.
It is simply not supported because MS does n...Windows XP Timesynchronisation and Netware

Is there a way I can ENABLE my Windows XP firewall and still be able to
connect to my Netware tree?
Whenever I enable my firewall...even with exceptions...all my Netware
traffic comes to a screaching halt.
You may want to give this a go:
Otherwise, I'd suggest getting a real firewall instead of the MS toy.

On a file server it is established NetWare 4.0. Earlier management
this server was carried out by means of utility NWADMIN95 which is
established on the computer with Windows 98SE and Client32.
Now there is a question of installation on all computers Windows
Pro and Windows XP Pro.
Thus on official site Novell.com i have found utilities NWADMIN and
Client32 only for NetWare 5.0 and later versions. Though these
are compatible with Windows 2000/XP Pro, these utilities are
with Netware 4.0.

Install the client w/o NMAS.
You can try disabling it, but I prefer installing it w/o any NMAS support
unless it is absolutely required.

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

Can ...Netware/IP Client for Windows XP
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

> But can I connect a windows XP client to my old novell 3.20 server?
We have netware 3.21 and have several Windows XP machines connecting, using
the Novell Client, installed as a bindery. They all have XP service pack 1
installed. However, a new machine with XP service pack 2 will not connect.
This should work with client 32 without problems. Given that you have a 3.2

We are currently using Netware 5 and running it with Windows 95. We need
to upgrade our Windows system and were wondering if Netware 5 is
compatible with Windows 2000 or Windows XP? If not, which version would
we need to run with Windows 2000 or Windows XP?
Sure -- it is compatible -- probably best (given a NetWare 5 environment)
