Using NT's Gateway Services for NetWare

By Bayk ·
We have a mix of Novell and WinNT environments. On one PC running Win 95 we have two NIC's. One is a standard 3Com Ethernet card on which TCP/IP and IPX/SPX protocols have been loaded. The other one is referred to as "NE2000 compatible". My assumption is that this card is designed primarily for NETWARE and TCP/IP has been loaded onto it. I do not know anything about the NOVELL environment so here is my question: as the IPX/SPX protocol is not loaded on the card am I right to assume thatit is preloaded in its ROM? Or is the NE2000 compatibility necessary for something else?

Hey, I hate to tell you but you only need one NIC in the PC. The Ethernet 802.2 and 802.3 protocal are already there by the OS.
You do NOT have to load anything on the card.

A. Remove the NE2000 Adapter(Generic windows driver)
B. Make SURE IPXand IP are bound to the same network adapter.

Everything should work OK.
P.S. If you are using Gateway Service for Novell you are NOT on Windows 95. That is an NT Service.
You should be using the Novell IntraNetware Client.
