NT Shared Drive

By highlander718 ·
I have a Novell (4.11) based network and an NT Server (4.0) with shared drives for applications. The workstations are running Win95. Whenever I try to select the mapped network drive on one of the workstations it stops responding (My Computer & Explorer). When I try to use Network Neighborhood, the Explorer stops responding. All this 3 or 4 times, after that everything goes well. As far as I know all the Services on the NT Server are started. Does anyone have an explanation for that ?

I had the same problem. What we did was to make sure the machines were rebooted at least twice a week. Win95 has memory leaks. So maybe you are experiencing this. If you move up to nt workstation or win 2000 pro this could end this problem. A cheapsolution for us was to transfer the mapping to a floppy then use the floppy to over come this problem.
good luck!
