connect to netware 5 server through internet?

Hello,

I have been searching google and the forums but cannot find an answer to this.

Can I open ports on our router and configure a remote client to connect to our server through the internet?

Thanks,
Dan

Yes, but I'd advice against it as (apart from authentication) all communication is in clear text. Better use VPN.

Thanks for the info Anders. Good to see your still here in the forums. You answered a couple of my questions back when we had our 4.11 server years ago. Thanks again for your help.
