I am on a Netware 3.12 network with my NT workstation 4.0. I see the other NT clients on the network, but not the Windows 95 clients. I cant use "net send ... " to them, and they don't show up in the network window. Any help would be appreciated!

What protocols are the Win95 Clients using? They need to be running a Microsoft protocol in order for them to show up in the Network window or to use Microsoft's "net send".

Remove if it is already installed, then reinstall "file and printersharing for microsoft networks" on the windows 95 clients. Then choose "share level access control". Feed the machine with the installation media it asks for, and reboot.

This worked for me, however, I'm no networking expert and cannot say what else could be done/omitted.

I have followed the advice on one computer with full success, but on another machine (win95 client again, obviously) I was told in an error message that I could not add file and print sharing for windows networks because file and print sharing for netware had been installed already.

Why the procedure worked on one machine which already had Netware file and printer sharing, but failed on another, seemingly identical, I have no idea - yet.

But thanks anyhow, this certainly did bring me a bit further towards a resolution.
