IPX Issue - Operation Not Permitted


Hi,

Having trouble with IPX in linux. I am using openSUSE 10.2, trying to load Netware server using ncpmount. Below is the result of my rc.local file. It works perfecting when I login as root, but, as you can see, will not work under another login.

Any ideas?
Thanks
Alan


ostrowlaw@linux-woqw:~> ipx_interface delall
ostrowlaw@linux-woqw:~> ipx_interface add -p eth0 802.2
ipx_interface: ioctl: Operation not permitted
ostrowlaw@linux-woqw:~> #ipx_interface add -p eth0 802.3
ostrowlaw@linux-woqw:~> ipx_configure --auto_interface=on --auto_primary=on
ipx_configure: ioctl: Operation not permitted
ostrowlaw@linux-woqw:~> ipx_interface check eth0 802.2
ipx_interface: No such IPX interface eth0 802.2.
ostrowlaw@linux-woqw:~> #ipx_interface check eth0 802.3
ostrowlaw@linux-woqw:~> ncpmount -S server2 -U admin -P password /server2
Cannot to mount on /server2: Operation not permitted

Thanks

You don't have permission to do that as a user..
Root can make the mount with user permissions/logins..

Ok, I figured that part out, but its perplexing. There must be a way to have users other than root access network services, otherwise its useless. That's the basis of my question.

Thanks.

Access is easy, just mount them with the user's priveleges..

It's just the mounting that needs to be done by root.

You can give users this privelege with sudo
Add them to the /etc/sudoers list and describe which commands they can use.
man sudo for more info
