netware upgrade

By kello ·
I work for a company that presently uses a netware 4.2 server as an application server serving one accounting program to users on the network locally. We are about to upgrade these server. Which version of netware would be most appropriate; netware 5.1 or 6.5? I'm thinking of upgrading to 5.1 but i'm not sure how long Novell will continue supporting 5.1 as they are already up to version 6.5.

How many users?

If you have under 100,I would suggest Netware Small Business Server 6.5 with upgrade protection to 7 which will be released shortly.

5.1 is a 5 year old product and will be EOL'd in the next year or 2.

Thanks for the advice. I did a quick research on NSBS 6.5 and I think I might settle for that since my company won't have more than 100 users.

Less than fifty users.
