Novell 4.11 and Internet Connection Sharing problem

Novell 4.11 and Internet Connection Sharing problem

Novell 4.11 and Internet Connection Sharing problem

I have a Novell 4.11 server with several Windows 95/98 clients connected thru IPX/SPX. Two of the clients have been upgraded to Windows XP Professional. One of the Windows XP is connected to Internet thru ADSL and the other Windows XP is sharing this connection. Both Windows XP machines have IPX/SPX and TCP/IP protocols. The problem is that now users cannot get server authenticated from the machine that is connected to the Internet thru the ADSL. ¿What is causing this?, ¿How should this be set up? Please take into consideration that I have very little knowledge about Novell networks and that I just recently "inherited" this network. Thanks in advance for any help you may give me.


RE: Novell 4.11 and Internet Connection Sharing problem

In the NetWare client properties, under Protocol Preferences, try changing the preferred network protocol to IPX and see if that helps.

Also, not sure how to do this in XP, but in Win2k when you go into properties of Network and Dialup Connections, if you choose the Advanced menu option, and click on Advanced settings, you can remove IP as a bound protocol under the NetWare client for Windows.

RE: Novell 4.11 and Internet Connection Sharing problem

Solved the problem this way:

1. unistall MS Client; leave NW Client IPX/SPX and TCP/IP
2. reconnect Shared Directories/Volumes
3. restart equipment and confirm NW Server connection is OK
4. install MS Client and ICS

Thanks for the help I found browsing thru this forum and specially to Provogeek and DrMarkGreen. Another place I found useful informatio was computing.net.
