Client Software location

Hi, can someone tell me where files are served from to show up in the Novell Client Software list of "Available Downloads".
i.e. browse to the OES2 server's web page / ip address.
Menu on left has "Home", "Management Services" and "Client Software".

Is there somewhere I can copy the relevant files that I want to make available? Example use: new computer could download the Novell client from the server...


Cheers.

You mean the iPrint clients? They are in
/var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/clients. If you install the latest
iPrint patches that should also update the client installation files
stored in that directory.

I don't use iPrint or iFolder. I just want to be able to place the client software on the welcome page.

Ah, I see, you mean the Novell Client. Looks like you'd have to
manually edit the download page, but the problem is that any sort of
patch could overwrite your changes with the default page again. Might
be best to simply take the main client install self-extracting EXE and
place it on some internal web server or FTP server, then e-mail out the
link.
