cool thanks, i'm assuming thats with NCP module compiled into your kernel?

also, have you tried out any of the netware login clients? i was thinking of trying out Gtk Netware Client, i just need to install ncpfs first.

havent tried it yet, but i believe i got that url from a link at support.novell.com, only reason i havent tried it yet is because my workstation has like 50 days uptime, so it hurts too much to reboot to update my kernel with NCP support.

I found a novell client that seems like it would work really well but I am having a heck of time to getting NCP to install. Here is the link.


http://novelclient.sourceforge.net/

Here is another but I don't know much about it.

In our case, we put the commands in /etc/rc.local:

--------------(cut here)--------------------------------------
# get ipx up and running for mounting Novell disk
insmod ipx

# configure ipx
ipx_configure --auto_interface=on --auto_primary=on

# Give it a little time to get ipx configured
# (if you don't do this, the mount happens before ipx is fully configured, and fails)
sleep 15

# mount the volume

ncpmount -S NetWare_Server -V /path/to/volume -U Novell_username -P Novell_password /local_mount_point
--------------(cut here)--------------------------------------

You could just give root a .nwclient file with the appropriate permissions, as described here: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/IPX-HOWTO.html
if you don't want the password open.

I have something analogous in my own .login with an accompanying .nwclient so that I can read/write to the Novell server as my own NetWare self.

Good luck!
