Can only see the Preferred Server

 Hello,
 
I was wondering if anyone have had a similar problem to mine. I have  installed two Netware servers on our network,  a 3.12 and a 4.11.  I have  loaded frame type 802.3 on the 3.12 and 802.2 on the 4.11 ( to keep the
users of the 3.12 server from seeing the 4.11 server.  The 3.12 clients  have only 802.3 in their net.cfg and not preferred server specified).  I  have Client32 on my Win95 machine,  and when I set the Preferred Server  in the Client32 properties, I only see that server.  If I change it to
the other server and restart,  I can only see that server.  I am able to  see both if I load 802.3 as a frame type on the 4.11 box,  but our 3.12  clients attach to it and can't logon. Any thoughts?
 
Thanks in advance,

Check your IPX protocol if it's working on auto mode, then you have to add both frames en remove auto select.

I had the same problem and it took my problem away.

If it's not working you can try on a dos workstation to load both frames and to connect to both servers.

I few months ago I spoke to an Enginer from Novell and he told me the 802.3 protocol can give problems on 100Mb networks with large packets. So you can also try to work on 10 Mb (only if you're using a 100Mb network).

Good luck.

I currently have my client setup as follows: under IPX 32 protocol for Novell Netware Client 32, Advanced IPX,  Use only the following frame types: 802.3, 802.2.  What puzzles me is that I can see either the server on 802.3 or 802.2 but never at the same time.  Its almost as if it shuts down the other frame type after it has found a preferred server.  I have gone in to network neighborhood and looked for that server that is on the "other" frame type and cannot see it. ??
