Trouble connecting 2 computers across 2 Novell Servers

Trouble connecting 2 computers across 2 Novell Servers

Trouble connecting 2 computers across 2 Novell Servers

I've got two specific computers on a LAN powered entirely by novell. one runs on the following setup,

Tree: LU
Context: Pers.PKR.LU
Server: Personnel

The other runs on this setup;

Tree: LUL
Context: Empl.LUL

Both computers run on windows xp pro

I would need to get these two computers to communicate via shared network resources, but I haven't been able to manage getting the two to communicate through windows applications. Remote desktop and PCAnywhere were the only 2 successful programs. Is there a specific setup procedure I'd be missing? If so, could someone point it out?

Thanks in advance,

RE: Trouble connecting 2 computers across 2 Novell Servers

Not sure exactly what you're trying to do, but if I understand correctly you are just trying to access one workstation from another.  

If this is the case, it has nothing to do with Novell at all and you should ask someone in a Windows forum.

On a side note, if you are in a large Novell environment, doing what you are trying to do will most likely be frowned on by your network admins.
