Novell Client, Netware 6.5sp8, VPN Connections

Good Morning... Just having a problem connecting to Netware Servers over VPN.

I'm using Checkpoint VPN and it utilizes my Netware DHCP to pass IP's to virtual network adapters on the VPN clients. I have the range it uses set to release codes and options
78 Directory Agent -172.16.7.1 172.16.7.1
79 Service Scope - ScopeName
85 NDS Servers -172.16.7.1 172.16.7.1
86 NDS Tree Name - MyTree

Still after connecting to the VPN from offsite I get Tree or Server can't be found. Should some of these values be entered in HEX?

Any idea's? I'm trying to avoid adding the information directly into each laptops Novell client properties. Are

This has nothing to do with the Novell Client, but is a question of
configuration of the Checkpoint VPN services on server and client.

Open a CMD box, -> slpinfo /d

What does it display?

Of course, because the question is, if your DHCP settings are set by
the VPN client correctly and that is to a certain extent configurable
on the VPN-server and VPN-client side.

If those settings are set correctly by the VPN client the Novell client
will use them, but the Novell client does not set those things, this is
the duty of your VPN-client.

OK. but which DHCP server is providing your workstation with the ip
addresses??
for sure there is an external dhcp server which allows you to connect to the
internet, and there is a dhcp server which provides your pc with an ip
address which is valid for the VPN tunnel.
this last dhcp server has to provide the options 78 & 79 by answering the
dhcpinform request.
if you use checkpoint's office mode, you are not able to provide that info
in the built-in dhcp server.
