iFolder hiccup

I installed iFolder, went through all the steps and installed the client
onto my desktop machine and VOILA! It worked. I installed it onto my
Fedora Linux box and IT WORKED!

Then I came to my second workstation and I get -105 and all the laptops in
the company have the same error. I can see no difference between any of
the installations, setups, configurations etc. I try to use the same name
to login as the 2 workstations or different names - doesn't make any
difference at all.

All machines running Windows 2000 all patched up to date all with the same
browser. Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhh!

Anyone got any suggestions?

iFolder hiccup

I think I found the problem, but the "cure" TID10095872 is as bad as the
disease! The box connecting to the Internet is a Fedora Core 4 with an FTP
Server and an Apache Webserver and I use Port Forwarding to access the
Novell 6.5 stuff like Virtual Office, NetStorage, Remote Manager etc.
Everything else works fine but I'm biting lumps out of the desk on the
iFolder connectivity.

Now I can login, but the connection is almost instantly broken.

Do a packet trace of comms from desktop to server. Can the WS resolve
whatever name you have given the ifolder server?

Re: iFolder hiccup

OK, I've even put the IP and name into the hosts file, but I have 2
different phenomena now. Some of the machines let me login and then break
the connection (as per the previous post) others just give me a -105.
Obviously there IS a difference between them, but I can't find it, they
are all pretty much standard and all running the same version of Windows
2000 patch levels etc. The one XP Laptop also gives a -105.

If I try to enter a wrong password, it tells me that the password is
invalid and is case sensitive and refuses to log me in.

If I change the NAME I get the same password error, and if I enter the
full context, I get the password error again. It can't be LDAP because
NetStorage, Virtual Office, NetDrive, iPrint, iManage and Remote manager
are all working fine on all the machines.

I've tried wired, wireless and standalone. All are the same

A packet trace should tell...
