Depends on what novell services you are looking to connect to, and whether they are hiding behind a firewall. If you are using Netware 6+, you should be able to access your files via a web browser by pointing to http://yourservername/NetStorage. You can also access files via Samba, if Native File Access is enabled on the server. We have linux users use Samba on the inside and NetStorage on the outside.

If you are looking for Groupwise, go to and download the cross platform client. It works very well, but requires v6.5 running on the server.
