latest netware tcpip stack (TCPIP.NLM) download

I have a netware boot disk for dell 760 computer. When I tried to boot the machine it stacked while contacting DHCP server after the network card driver is loaded. There is no doubt with DHCP server b/c it works well with other machines. SO I suspect the problem is the tcpip stack, give me the address to download latest version of TCPIP stack(TCPIP.NLM). Or if there is other solution for the boot problem.
As an information I use the boot cd for imaging and for the imaging we use PQDI

Thanks

I assume you mean that you have a boot CD ( What OS? ) with Novell Client on it ( What Version? ), and from there you run PQDI and save images on a NetWare server. If so, this would have little / nothing to do with TCPIP.NLM ( which runs ON NetWare servers itself. )

If the Boot CD does not know how to use the NIC in the DELL 760, then you need an updated Boot CD. Or what we do is find a USB NIC which works with our boot CD's and use that to get around non-usable built in NICs.

Probably DOS and the old DOS client which also uses NLMs

I didn't want to assume too much....

I believe but cannot confirm the latest Client32 for DOS version is vintage 2002, I'd assume TCPIP.NLM version is not the issue. Most likely the incorrect LAN drivers are being used. In which case, after ETHERTSM is loaded, echo out the PCI0 environment variable which will indicate the NIC detected.

Re: latest netware tcpip stack (TCPIP.NLM) download

The server where the images are saved is netware 6.5 sp6
my boot cd is win 98
Network driver I use is e1000e
this problem is not only on dell 760 almos on all machines with sata HDD drive

Problemis that the old DOS client is no longer supported. I also assume
that the problem is not the stack itself, but rather the NIC driver.

If you can make this work, it will involve trying to load the proper driver with the proper parameters. So insert a pause before the e1000e load line and manually try different drivers / parameters. Inspect the value of %PCI0% environment variable to see what it says.

Otherwise you will need to jettison this and use some of the alternatives mentioned in other posts.
