4.91 Client can't find server

I have added a brand new HP ML110 G3 server to my Netware 6.5 home network
(planning to replace my NW60 750MHZ Gigabyte "home grown" server.) The
client I was using is 4.90 sp1a on Win2000, but I was unable to see the new
tree. My laptop running the 4.91 sp2 client sees both trees and my backup PC
w/client 4.83 sp2 also fins both trees. So I upgraded my Win2000 to 4.91 sp3
and it sill will not recognize the new tree.

Can anyone take an educated guess as to what setting might cause the tree
not to show up?

Thanks,
PeterH

Re: 4.91 Client can't find server

What protocols are you using in the client?
IP and IPX?
or just one of these?

Do you have IP and IPX on the servers

My old NW60 server had IP/IPX. The new one just has IP. All thee PC's I
mentioned could access the NW60 server but only two of them can access the
new NW65 server. On client has IP/IPX and the other has IP. My PC, which
cannot access server, has IP/IPX

Re: 4.91 Client can't find server

Try checking the frame types on the server and in the client. I would
run 802.2 in IPX, or no IPX.

Thanks Timothy,
I changed from auto to 802.2 but the problem is on the IP side.
I have both IPX/SPX/NetBios and TCP/IP protocols enabled on my client
4.91sp3. The OLD server has IP/IPX and I can connect to it ok. The NEW
server has IP only. I cannot connect to it via this client, I can connect to
the NEW server from other PC's and <ip:add>:8009.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I should look at or should I completely
remove the client and do a fresh install?

Thanks,
PeterH

Launch the Novell GUI Login and replace the server name
with its IP address, can you login to this server via IP now ?

Replacing the IP address in the GUI- Treename or Servername does NOT find
the tree. This one client (4.91 sp3) does not find the tree when the other
PC do.

Re-reading your initial post, you have 2 out of 3 connecting to the
server without problems. Anything special installed on this machine ?
(firewall)

Re: 4.91 Client can't find server

Adding to Edison's comments:

Are all 3 PCs on the same LAN segment?
Are the PCs on teh same segment as the server(s)?
If you put the one server's IP in for the tree in the login|advanced
can you browse contexts?

Thanks for the reply,
Last question first. I have tried the server's IP in treename and no
contexts are found.
Now to the first question regarding segments.. I am just a small fry in a
simple network so I don't really know if I have different segments on not.
(Picture a small cluttered Home Office environment.) The network consists
of:

************ ************ *******************
* Switch#1 *--------------* Switch#2 *-------* Wireless Router *
************ ************ *******************
| | | | |
| |--New Server IP | |--PC#1 IP/IPX |--Laptop IP
|-----Old Server IP/IPX |-----PC#2 IP/IPX

Old server and New Server have different trees and contexts.
Both PC's and Laptop can see the Old server. PC#1 and Laptop can see New
server.
My plan was to copy files from OLD to NEW and then remove OLD.

I hope the "diagram" displays properly.

Thanks again for the help,
PeterH

Re: 4.91 Client can't find server

Can you ping the server from this faulty client ?

Yes, I can ping it. I can also use IE HTTPS://<IP>:8009 to access the server
from the "faulty" client.
Thanks for you attention to my problem,
PeterH

Re: 4.91 Client can't find server

What are the IPs of all servers and the PCs? If not private please
exclude the first octet or two.

If static on any PC verify the subnet masks.

Ok, I need to know a little more about your home network.
You mentioned

2 Servers
2 Trees
3 Workstations

2 out of 3 workstations can see both Trees and Servers
One workstation can only see and connect to one Tree

Am I correct thus far ?

What application/service does the problem workstation have different from
the remaining workstations ?

If you grab this workstation (since it's home network, I'm sure it won't be
a problem) and place it on an isolate it switch with the new NetWare server.
Enter a static IP on the workstation to match the NetWare server subnet.
At the Novell GUI Login, if you enter the server IP under the Preferred Server
entry, can you login them ?

What are the network names for the server, tree and workstations ?

The PC that can't find the new server has tons of applications, as it is my
main development PC. (I am a programmer.) But, all connect to the old serve
w/o problems

I plugged the problem client PC directly into the switch which has both
server connections. I cannot get a response from context if I enter the IP
into treename
