Hi!
What is the different betweene ver2.1 and ver3 og iFolder?
iFolder3 cost extra money, but iFolder2.1 is bundled with Netware OES.

What are the arguments for ver3?

iFolder 3.x is Linux-only. Novell decided not to continue iFolder on
NetWare past v2.x.

Like Duane has mentioned, iFolder 3 requires the .Net framework. This
framework is unfortunately only available on Windows and Linux not
Netware. That is hardly the defining feature though.

iFolder 3.2 is also bundled with OES Linux so if you have an OES license
then you get it with everything else. iFolder 3's key feature is the
sharing of iFolders as well as multiple iFolders. iFolder 3 also has a
Mac client as well as support on several Linux distros. iFolder 3.4 and
later are Open Source.

Victor,

The .Net framework operates on Mono, which Novell at one time promised
to port to NetWare but have since changed their mind and have decided to
port only onto Linux. The .Net itself isn't a sticking point as it is
meant only for Windows anyway.
