New Novell Client for Vista

Hi,

I installed Novell Client for Vista 1.0, the installation completed
successfully. but when i tried to login, system could not find the tree,
Context or Server. I tried even to put the Novell Server IP Address but
with NO response

I'm using Novell 4.11 Server. is that out of support for Vista Client by
Novell??
Have i to enable LDAP Treeless Login???

Thanks

A 4.x server needs IPX client support and there is no IPX protocol in
Vista. I suggest you upgrade your server to 6.5 or upgrade your workstation
to Xp.

Its not going to work with 4.11 - 4.x uses IPX for client connectivity,
not IP. as there is no IPX in Vista, it won't be able to connect.

Re: New Novell Client for Vista

The minimum Server OS version which is supported is 5.1. (5.0 just
might work as it also supports native IP but it isn't supported).

For a NetWare 4.x network, your only choice would be as Anders noted,
upgrade that workstation OS to Windows XP. (Those Apple ads do have a
point on this).

Is the workstation a 'store bought' workstation (ie typically the only
option there is Vista home something).?

Re: New Novell Client for Vista

the workstation license is " Vista Business " not Vista Home.
i understand that could not be able to connect via IP. but i tried to PING
the
novell server via the Vista workstation but with No Reply, is that normal?
Then what is option " IP over IPX " at novell server option stand for?

Thanks

Yes, unless you have IP configured on the server. A 4.x server can host IP
apps, such as a webserver all right, but it cannot do NCP (NetWare Core
Protocol) over IP.

There used to be a way to encapsulate IPX in IP packets, called
"Compatibility Mode", but there is no support for that either in Vista.

I have seen little or no interest in Vista with my clients and it appears to
be a global phenomenon:

Re: New Novell Client for Vista

Anders has the right of it here -- at this point, I find it difficult to
justify deploying Vista (not for home users, and definitely not for
business environments).
