Novell problem with my Mac

I have a Power Mac 6100/66 which is connected via TCP to the net but it is also capable of connecting to the Novell server via IPX. Anyway, the TCP part works perfect on the Mac side but it's when I try to connect to the Novell server via the PC side that things fail. Below is my startnet.bat and net.cfg files. If these check out ok, then is it something to do with the settings on the Mac side that's preventing me from seeing the Novell server, and if so, how do I change this so that I can see the server.

<startnet.bat>

      cd\nwclient
      set nwlanguage=english
      lh c:\nwclient\lsl.com
      lh c:\nwclient\macodi.com
      lh c:\windows\odihlp.exe
      lh c:\nwclient\ipxodi.com
      lh c:\nwclient\vlm.exe /PS=<servername>
      cd\

All the drivers load fine, but when 'vlm' loads and looks for the server drive, it sits there for 10secs and just continues to load the rest of the config files.

<net.cfg>

      Link Driver MACODI
            Port 300
            INT      10
            node addess <address>
            Frame Ethernet_802.2
            Frame Ethernet_II
      Protocol IPX E0 Ethernet_802.2
      Netware DOS Requester
            First Network Drive = F
            Preferred Server = <servername>
            File Handles = 60
      Link Support
            Buffers 4 1500
            MemPool 4096

All that's on the DOS side is DOS 6.22 and Win 3.1.

I had the same problem a few years ago with a 6100 dos compatible, check to see id the MacIpx control panel is loaded on the mac side, if my memory serves me correct that caused a conflict on the pc side , if it is loading try disableing it

VLM's need a config.sys entry: LASTDRIVE=Z
Also does it give an error like: No server found ?
Check if frametype 802.2 is the right one bound to the nwserver adapter. It might be 802.3

Good luck
