Netware Server TCPIP Address

By stngfan1 ·
I have a remote Netware server, I need to get the TCP/IP address of. I can get to it though RConsole, but where do I look for the address ? I don't want to down it, is it in a *.NCF file or can I use the Monitor or Install NLM ?

Thanks
TM

There is an NLM called INETCFG.NLM that is used to build the TCP/IP server configuration. This may show you the existing address or it gives you a menu driven option to build the TCP/IP config.

use Rconsole to connect.

Go to the console prompt (alt-f2 to switch between screens) the console prompt will look like a dos prompt except with the name of the server rather than c:>

then type "config" (without the quotes)

this will list all protocols and addresses bound to the server as well as the NIC they are bound to (if you have more than one). generally, IPX is bound first, and IP after it, so expect to find the ip address at the end of the list.

Depending on how up to date the server is, and how it has been maintained, there are a few possible places you may find the configuration. If everything is more or less up to date on the server, your best bet is to use INETCFG for changing any of your addressing/bingings. if things haven't been moved in there, then they are likely found in SYS:SYSTEM/AUTOEXEC.NCF Which can be edited using notepad from a workstation, or using "edit sys:system/autoexec.ncf" from the server prompt.

Config will find it for you no matter what, and would be my recommended method.

If your desktop client is up to date (support.novell.com) , you could also find the server in Network Neighborhood, right click on it, and you'll find the IP address listed in the properties of the server.
That's a few different options for ya.
