Proset Pre-logon with the Novell 4.90 SP2 Client

According to this page:

The capability is there for single sign-on with version 10 of the
Proset software and the 4.90SP2 Novell client. Thus far however I have
had no success.

I am using Proset and the 4.90 SP2 client with a Cisco LEAP
wireless environment, however I am unable to use the instructions
provided here. In particular, this statement:

"Verify that the Use prelogon feature for wireless networks is selected
on the Novell Client* for Microsoft Windows* 2000/XP login screen."

appears to be entirely false, as this setting does not exist and is not
discussed anywhere else, including Novell's documentation. Intel
support told me go talk to Novell.

I have all of the needed components of the Proset software and set up a
profile with the Admin toolkit. Not only do I not have a pre-logon
option, but the profile does not actually authenticate with windows
logon even after signing in, which it should, but instead prompts for a

Has anyone managed to get this working successfully? Could you provide
a more detailed procedure, as to what needs to be done?

Hi Dev,

In order to get PROSet and Novell Client to work and play well
together, you have to perform the installation in the proper steps.

1) Install Novell Netware client 4.90SP2
2) Install Intel PROSet 10.x
3) If SSO -> Pre Login Connect was not installed in step 2, go to
Control Panel->Add/Remove Software->Intel PROSet->Modify, and add the
Administrator Tool + Pre Login Connect (PLC is found under SSO
4) Using the admin tool in PROSet, create a Pre Login Connect profile
and save the package. Please make sure that the package was installed
and valid (you should be able to connect to your profile now)
5) At this point on the Novell Client Login screen you should see under
the Advanced button a new tab called "Wireless"
6) You should now be able to establish a PLC connection to your
wireless network prior to your Novell Client authentication.

It works just peachy on our network. You just need to make sure you
install PROSet after Novell Client. On installation PROSet looks for
the Novell client, and if it's not present the wireless module which
enables the compatability never gets installed.

Hope this helps!
