Netware & Windows XP...

Windows XP Pro SP 2
Novell Client 4.90 SP2

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.

Otherwise, I'd suggest getting a real firewall instead of the MS toy. wrote:

We have installed both the 4.8 and 4.9 versions of the Novell Client 
(configured as IP only) on WindowsXP and have the Windows Firewall 
enabled and have NOT added any items in the exceptions list.  It just works.

Dear Board,

Yesterday I powered down my laptop (XP Home) with the power switch while 
Novell client was running.  When I brought it up at home (without the 
network) it allowed me to log in as a workstation only, but then after a 
few hours it started to run really slow and then all the icons 
dissapeared and the system locked up.  I powered down and when it tried 
to reboot, first of all it came up really slowly, it got past the XP 
screen but then on the HP background it said Novell Security Message: 
you have encountered an unexpected login failure! Status 0x6EC04
Novell says its a Microsoft code, Microsoft says its HP support.  HP 
doesn't seem to know what it means either.  I can't find this status 
code anywhere in the Microsoft knowledge base or the Novell.

I tried rebooting in safe mode.  Tried booting from CD but it seems to 
always come back to this error.

Please Help!

What happened during those few hours at home?
XP Home is a tricky animal in terms of business-class networking and its 
Is re-imaging or otherwise setting up XP Pro an option?

Windows Event logs showing anything unusual?
Was Windows installed from scratch, a custom image, or an OEM image?

Security or any other driver-based software like firewall, VPN, remote 
management or antivirus installed and running?

Can you give us any details about the make/model of hardware, NIC and its 
drivers, etc. of said workstation?

Can you verify a virus, spyware or some other corruption has not affected 
I've used these free utilities in the past to help troubleshoot and they can 
tell you wonders about what is really going with Windows...

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 Client 4.83SP1 & 4.90SP1 Causes Blue Screens In Windows XP
We have a number of HP Compaq d530 desktop systems running Windows XP SP1 Professional. With virtually any image I can find or make for these models, I get a blue screen of death after installing the Netware client (both 4.83SP1 & 4.90SP1). In either case, the client is installed (including the remote control utility for Zenworks) and the machine reboots after the installation has completed. When the machine comes back up everything seems fine...until you log in. At that point, the machine will give a blue screen of death. All of these systems have Intel Extreme grap...

Win2k SP4 & Office XP & Netware Client
We are having an issue with Windows 2000 SP4 and Office XP and the Netware client 4.83/4.90. Ever since we upgraded our Windows 2000 computers to SP4 the Office XP shortcut bar has become slow and we are recieving a lot of complaints about it. This problem does not exist with Windows 2000 SP 0,1,2,3. But once you go to SP4, the shortcut bar slows down. Opening Word or Excel from START/Program Files and the app comes up immediately. Use the shortcut bar and you got a 10 to 15 second delay before the app loads. I've pretty much traced it to the Netware client. 4.83 and 4.90...

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 installation? However, if the Netware Client is still needed, are there any workarounds for Windows XP Home. Thanks!!! Jerry K. 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...

Question on utility NWADMIN for NetWare 4.0 which are compatible with Windows 2000 Pro Windows XP Pro
