IP Address for netware 3.12 server

by tbradley In reply to IP Address for netware 3. ...

The burning question is why?

Netware 3.12 does not support any Tcp/ip processes worth mentioning, such as DHCP, Tcp/ip printing etc, so the effort most likely outweights the benefit.

To do it, you would have to go to the server console, loadinstall, and bind IP to the network card in the autoexec.ncf file

geez... been a long time, but it's something like this

bind ip 3c90x.lan addr=10.222.22.22 mask=255.255.255.0 frame=ethernet_802.2

before this takes effect, you must load tcpip.nlm

IP Address for netware 3.12 server

you must load the NIC driver a second time. I t should look something like this:

load NE2000, port=340 int=5 frame=Ethernet_II name=ip_board
load tcpip forward=yes
bind ip to ip_board addr=192.10.10.10 mask=255.255.255.0

The frame type mustbe supported for TCPIP either Ethernet_II or 802.2. I use Ethernet_II for TCPIP.

addr=the static IP address you want to assign to the server
The next question is what do yo want o accomplish with the IP connectivty.

But as they say, that is a different story

Above will get you connected

If I remember correctly (and it's sometime since I used 3.12 as well) you will probably also need to add the default gateway to the ip address line.

Taking the second anser as an example, the line
bind ip to ip_board addr=192.10.10.10 mask=255.255.255.0
needs to have a parameter such as gate=192.10.10.200
in order to cross subnets (if you use them).

As for what you want to do with IP, my guess is that it will be either for FTP or printing from a Unix host? In this case, you will need to get the additional product Flex/IP in order to be able to do so.
