It sounds like you don't have ipxutils set up.

Follow the steps in installing/configuring ipx,
verify you can see the server (with the "slist" command),
and then mount the Novell fileserver:

Good luck!

If he didn't have the ipxutils installed he
couldn't run ncpmount in the first place...

Did you open the interface?
ipx_interface add -p eth0 802.2
(or similar ;})
And if you did, have you got the
right protocols set-up (compiled
into ncpmount)?


P.S.: I get that error when I try to login
into novell at home, too ;) ... which is
quite normal since I don't have a server
here :)

Try moving IPX to eth1/trusted interface and see if it works. I had many problems with the firewall not letting me connect.
