Re: Novell Client 2 SP2 (IR2) for Windows now available

Is this download limited to selected users or paid subscribers? I see "Authentication Required" "A username and password are being requested by http://cdn.novell.com. The site says: "iChain"" Thank you.

Re: Novell Client 2 SP2 (IR2) for Windows now available

Never mind. I finally figured out that I need to log in twice to download. In the past I have only had to log in once for downloads. Today, I thought the second user name and password prompt was for a Novell employee, not my own user name and password. Doh.

Re: Novell Client 2 SP2 (IR2) for Windows now available

The website won't save login information anymore either. I have to login
twice every time I want to download something.

I suggest you all hit the Feedback link on that page and lodge a complaint on this. I've done that myself, and raised an internal ticket, but it carries more weight coming from customers.
