Netware Client for Mandrakelinux


I have been looking for a few days now for a Netware Client that will work with Mandrakelinux. I've downloaded a number of clients but they don't work or will not install.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

Have you tried

ncpfs


Go to http://rpm.pbone.net/

click on advanced search and only check Mandrake 10.x

Then select "New look for FTP search" at the bottom of the screen.

In the search box put

ncpfs*.rpm

Then click search.

Download ncpfs-2.2.4-2mdk.i586.rpm

and install it just like you would any rpm file

NCPFS

I was able to locate ncpfs. Downloaded then ./configure and then make install install-dev
From there I don't have a clue. Everything seemed to run ok. From that point I thought that I could run nwclient and something would happen. Sure was wrong there. Any suggestions are requested and mucho appreciated. Thanks

How did you run nwclient?

If nothing ELSE happened you would at least
see an error message (if you ran it from a terminal,
that is, rather than double-clicking it ;}) ... it's NOT
a GUI tool, you know ...


Cheers,
Tink

Using an rpm you will not need to run ./conficure or make or make install.

run this command in the directory where you downloaded ncpfs-2.2.4-2mdk.i586.rpm

rpm -Uvh ncpfs-2.2.4-2mdk.i586.rpm

This will install it.

If you dont know how to run it type

rpm -ql ncpfs-2.2.4-2

this should display all files associated wiht ncpfs look for something in the /bin or /sbin etc. and run that command

NCPFS

Tinkster and Jax8:
Thanks very much for your responses. I did attempt to run nwclient from a konsole - no errors but no activity.
No output is good output??

The file that I downloaded was ncpfs-2.2.5.tar.gz This is why I configured it.

When I run nwclient in the konsole this is what appears: usage: nwclient MY_ADDR SERVER_ADDR
Could this be right and I need to add arguments?

Perhaps I should download ncpfs-2.2.4.rpm from pbone. I'm game.

Your suggestions are much appreciated.

No output in this scenario is a bit odd ...

You should get a failure message of sorts,
something like command not found :) since there
IS no such command in the ncputils-suite.

Try an ncpmount, man ncpmount for details.


Cheers,
Tink

package ncpfs-2.2.4-2 is not installed

Ok so it was already installed.

Lets do a force install with the command

rpm -Uvh --force ncpfs-2.2.4-2mdk.i586.rpm

then type

rpm -qa | grep ncpfs

Then with the output of that command find out what ncpfs installed as and then do the

rpm -ql TheNameOfTheNcpfs


You can also run

rpm -qa | more

This will allow you to scroll down the list of packages that are installed on you system.
