Novell problem with my Mac
Posted on 1997-05-02
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.
lh c:\nwclient\vlm.exe /PS=<servername>
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.
Link Driver MACODI
node addess <address>
Protocol IPX E0 Ethernet_802.2
Netware DOS Requester
First Network Drive = F
Preferred Server = <servername>
File Handles = 60
Buffers 4 1500
All that's on the DOS side is DOS 6.22 and Win 3.1.
