Unhappy mounting a novell drive


I can mount Novell volume just fine. What I would like to do is mount a folder that's on a Novell volume. For example; I have a volume called data. On that volume is a folder called common. I want to mount data/common. when I try I get "Cannot access path data/common: No such file or directory." Is this possible to do???? If so how???

Can you tell me the commands you used to mount it? I can ping
my Novell 5.0 server but that's about it. I can't get the mount to
work.

Thanks.

Our shop was using Novell 4.11 and IPX as the protocol . What I had to do was install ipxutils2.2.0.18-6.i386 and ncpfs-2.2.0.18-6.i386. I then typed "ipx_interface add - p eth0 802.3. It sounds like you only have TCP/IP. If so then you don't need the ipxutils just the ncpfs rpm, I think.

I then created a mount point in /mnt, example mkdir /mnt/data

typed "mcpmount -S servername -V volumename -U username -f 777 -m /mountpoint" NOTE: User name must have the context in it. For example: -U username.context.servername

I hope this helps.

BTW we have since moved off Novell.

Thanks for the info. I'm new to Linux and trying to find where the
ipxutils is located (still searching the CDs).

I just found it on the CDs.....

Check this out.

http://novelclient.sourceforge.net

It's a Novell client login for versions 3.x - 6.x of Novell!!!!!!!

I'm setting it up right now. I'm glad someone posted this.

Hope IPX stack is installed on the NetWare 5 server.

Now with Novell too joining the Linux bandwagon, we can see some more support.
