Novell Client Internet configuration

By andreabutler ·
We have 100 workstations that are connected to Novell Netware 5 server. What is puzzles me is why one of our client or workstation doesn't appear to pick internet connection. Is somewhere out there who could help me with this problem please. Networking on this workstation is fine apart from the internet is not working.

Check your Gateway setting on this workstation.

Hi Andrea,
Communication to your server is maybe IPX or IP, to the internet it is definitely IP, so you have to concentrate on that.

Compare Gateway and DNS settings with the ones that do function. Try pinging IP addresses further and further away, until you get no more reply (to the server, to the router, to the ISP, to a website). Probably (if things are correctly set up) pinging a webserver (like "ping www.techrepublic.com" should not give you a reply, but it should get "translated" into an IP address by some DNS server. And something silly maybe, the subnet mask is correct I hope? IP is functioning at all? Check this by launching "ipconfig" on a command prompt (W9x and NT/2000). Can you reach the firewall/proxy? Often they don't reply to a ping, but the name should also be resolved to an IP address.

And that should keep you busy for a while ;-) In short, either your IP configuration doesn't allow you to reach certain boxes or servers, or somehow that machine doesn'tknow (correctly) of a box that can translate a name to an IP address.

Good luck,

Jim
