Using VPN client then netware client to access file server

Hi, I have one customer site functioning well. Using Cisco VPN client 
then login via 4.83 sp2 client. Now when attempting to use above method I 
receive Tree not found. We have 5.x servers. I don't really understand 
the advertisement of the tree, SAP or ARP or ? 
Any comments or suggestions or pointing to documentation would be greatly

> I don't really understand

SAP is IPX. ARP is NetBIOS. NetWare uses SLP (mainly) as well as 
Host file, DNS.

For VPN, I recommend using dotted decimal notation in the server
name w/o using name resolution.

Replace the server name with its IP address under Novell GUI Login |

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...

BM38 VPN Client to site can not login to the netware client without speficing a server to log into

How to access Netware servers with no client?
I'm running NW6sp3, edir 8.6.2 and my clients are all W2K and XP. I'd like to eliminate the Novell Client in my environment. What is the best way to do that? Is Native file access still the best solution? I want my clients to be able to access the novell file servers thru a mapped drive or unc path (network neighborhood).

NetWare Client interfering with Windows server access?
We have a user who has trouble with his access to a Windows share. He did a capture of his traffic during the trouble and it appears that the cached DNS record for the server he is accessing expires and his machine needs to resolve it again. The problem seems to be that the NetWare Client also goes through a series of NCP calls attempting to resolve the server. He believes that this attempt at resolution causes problems with Explorer that make it seem like it's hung for a short period of time. The DNS record for the server in question is relatively short, but the TTL wa...

problem between xp home/netware client 4.83sp2 & win95 clients
This may not even be down to Netware, but I am trying to eliminate certain factors. we have 3 older PCs running Win95 v4.00.95b and the original Netware 32 client (it came with Intranetware 4.11) and one new machine that has WinXP Home and the Netware client 4.83sp2. At first everything was fine, then we had a problem with the new machine and we ended up re-installing XP Home and fitting a new network card. This seemed to be OK for a few days when 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 ...

Client 4.90SP2 vs. Microsoft's XP Netware Client
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? Jerry Gunn Metamora High School Well, since you apparently need only IPX support (you didn't note which ver...

Internet Access using Netware Client 4.91
Hi all, Recently, I upgraded a number of PCs from Windows 98 to XP Pro, at the same time I installed Netware Client 4.91. All the PCs are able to logon, access the local drives, the Internet and e-mail without any problems, apart from one. On this PC, I can log on to the network, and access the files and folders on the network drive, but when I attempt to access the Internet or e-mail, Internet Explorer 6 times out. There is no proxy server on the network, and none of the Internet Explorer proxy server settings have been set. Can someone give me some pointers to what...

Client loses connection to Clustered NetWare File server
I have recently installed a NetWare 6.5 sp5 cluster. This is being used as a file server for over 6000 users. The majority of users are not having any problems, but some users (not always the same ones) are losing the mappings to the server. They are getting the messgae "Invalid file handle". We are currently using client 4.83 sp 2. The only fix is a reboot of the workstation, a logon refresh does not remap the drive. Has anyone got any ideas why these clients rae losing mappings, I also have mappings to 5.1 servers on the workstations at the same time and these do n...

MS Client access to Netware 6.5 servers
