98se, Netware client and VPN

By jfp ·
We have a situation where the Netware client version 3.32sp, and 3.3 installed IP and IPX seems to cause the Dial-up adapter to not use its IP settings. The workstations are all 98 second edition with all of the microsoft updates installed, and dun1.4 We have an ip address
assigned to the workstation either static, or dynamic. Connects to the lan, and internet fine. However we need to connect to a vpn to connect
to a health care network. All was working fine until we intalled Netware 6 into our tree, which uses IP where our other servers are all 4.x and ipx only. What is happening is that we can connect to the vpn using the ppp adapter over Ethernet however once connected we are unable to communicate with anything on the network, through Http, telnet or
pinging. The vpn provides us with an ip address for the ppp adapter, as well as a primary and secondary wins server and dns server. The
workstation though continues to try and use the dns that was previously assigned to thenic card.

If we reinstall the netware client IPX only everything works fine, and this is only a problem on windows 98, all 2000 machines work correctly
with IP and IPX installed. This evidence points to there being a problem with the netware client and the fact that we are using IP to connect to the Netware 6 servers.

Anyone have any ideas as to other solutions than Installing the Netware client IPX only as I've tried everything that I can think of

98se, Netware client and VPN

by ctmoore1998 In reply to 98se, Netware client and ...

What I've found with a lot of the VPN clients that run on workstations is that once you connect to the VPN then all TCP ports are redirected through the VPN connection. This should show up if you connect to the VPN go to a DOS promt and do a route print command. Also what are the networks of the two ends of the VPN since the 2000 work fine it shouldn't be an issue but it isn't recommended that the networks be the same i.e. network a vpning to network b. Since whenyou establish the VPN it will assign a IP address to your workstation from the VPN pool. On the 98 machines in the IPX properties change the media to the specific IPX type (802.3) instead of auto and set to be the default protocol. This way you can use the IP for the VPN and connect to the local network via the IPX.
