need help connecting to novell share...


Hi,

I need to access a novell share for school, but don't know how to do it. can I use smb or something else?

I have attempted to try smb://ip.add.re.ss/sharename
and smb://ip.add.re.ss
smb://username@ip.add.re.ss with the combinations above

with no luck.

The server is available and I can access it using a windows machine with a novell client, but can't from my linux box.

Is there a better way, without actually having to load a client on my machine?

thanks

client machine: suse 10.1 GM
Server...: I don't know the number but I was told it is the latest available.

I have also tried using ncpmount and I have never used it before so let me know if I have a formatting error or something ( :-) ).

Here is what I typed:
ncpmount -S serverhostname -A dns.domain.name /home/username/folder_to_map_to/ -U username

I then get...

Quote:
Logging into -serverhostname- as -USERNAME- (In all caps?)
Password: I then type my password
It then thinks for about a minute and then I get the following:

Quote:
Get host address `dns.domain.name': Server not found (0x8847)
thanks for any info you can provide...

Update...

I downloaded the novell login script for linux, but It has syntax errors in it and fails... But, I looked in it and changed my format a little and got farther:

ncpmount -S serverhostname -A serveripaddress -U lakeland -m /home/username/folder_to_map_to/

Now I get the following error message:

Quote:
ncpmount: No such entry (-601) in nds login
Login denied.

thanks again

Have you tried to login using your user id and your full context?

In this case you would enter your command as follows:

ncpmount -S serverhostname -A serveripaddress -U .lakeland.your.context -m /home/username/folder_to_map_to/
