Neware client connecting to NT Server

By cbankhead ·
We run Netware 5.0 & 4.10 with Windows 98 and Netware client 3.12. We have one NT server 4.0 that we were using for a Proxy server. We need to load in another application on the NT and let the Windows client connect to both Novell & the NT 4.0 Server.

I tried loading in the MS NT 4.0 client software and can connect to the Novell servers as before and see the NT server, but I can only see the "login" directory on the NT server as well as the CD drive.

What are we missing in trying to connect to both.

Thanks

First of all, lose the 3.12 client for NetWare and install Client32 (downloadable at Novell). This will make connecting to your NetWare servers much easier and ween you off of the DOS-based stuff. Second, how you connect to your NT server depends onhow you've set it up. If it's a PDC (Primary Domain Controller) then you must use TCP/IP and log in to the Domain (every user must be set up with permissions, etc.). If you're simply sharing a directory, that can be done using NetBUEI and saves you the hassle of setting up TCP/IP, the Domain, and users again. Just map the drives from your Win98 clients and reconnect at logon. There is no official "Log in" this way, the permissions are set up on the share itself. Either way, you'll need the client for MS Networks installed along with the Novell client. This is the simplest way, though there are others, such as using NDS for NT, Samba for NetWare, or MS Services for NetWare.

Hope that helps.

Hi!

I don't think you can be authenticated with both the NT Domain and the Novell Server in a single login without any third party software/clients.

You can however login to the NT Domain and then manually login to the Novell server and then you will be correctly authenticated on both servers.

You will only "see" directories that have been shared on the NT server.
