connecting linux (fedora) to a novell netware network


After a smb://ip_address, I am presented with a dialog where I input my username, domain and password.

The netware network doesn't use a windows domain though, and I can't leave the field blank. What would I put in here?

This Novell "Cool Solution" might help.

This helps somewhat, but my password contains an ! and when entering it in the console it is interpreted as the command to insert the last entered command. Is there an escape character like in html, to enter reserved characters?

When trying to mount via console I get a kernel error :-S

It would be good to know what to put in at domain in the dialog box.

If you are entering it in the shell, try \! or enclose the entire password in single quotes. Also using locale specific characters might get you in trouble as well, if the server or your terminal doesn't have support for that locale.

I get a kernel error when mounting via the shell. I would like to do with in nautilus. What do I put in the "domain:" field?

Try preceding the mount command with "ltrace " and "strace ". Redirect the output to a file. Try to see which library or system call was executed before the crash.
