Can't Login Using Microsoft Client

I am running my notebook with Windows XP SP2.

I log into a novell network using the Microsoft Netware Client build
into XP.

Everything worked fine until last Friday.

Now I get the error message after the Windows Login as if the machine
can't find the novell tree (Network path not found). I am shure that my
context hasn't changed, because I still can login on a PC running the
Novell Client.

I fear, that our IT guys have installed new software or patches in the
Backend, but I can't asked them.

My question is: Are new Novell Components out there that create
problems for the Microsoft Novell Client?

Re: Can't Login Using Microsoft Client

This forum is for the Novell Client for Windows NT (4.0/2000/XP/2003).
However, the big problem (amongst others) with the Microsoft Client for NetWare is that it
requires IPX/SPX. NetWare has supported pure IP since version 5.0 (1998), so I'm guessing
your IT guys have finally removed IPX/SPX.

Re: Can't Login Using Microsoft Client

Good bet. As a shot in the dark, make sure your IPX frame-type is not set
to Auto but what your server was running.
This most likely 802.2 followed by ETHERNET_II and finally 802.3.
