Hi guys, I'm trying to get TCP/IP running on my netware 3.12 server so I can get a web server up and running for an intranet.  Unfortunately its causing some trouble.  Clients get 'a network server could not be found' when running VLM.exe (or NETX).  However, if I ping the server from the client or vice versa it pings ok.  I've even tried turning off and on the client while it is being pinged by the server to ensure that the replied stop when the client is off... and they do.  Any suggestions???.

Thanks to everyone in advance!!.

Did you use the lastest TCP/IP NLMs??
Why don't you move to Client 32?

I'm using the latest TCPIP.NLM as posted at the netware web site, v4 I think, and how will moving to client32 sort the problem? (pardon my ignorance!).

Check your settings in the NET.CFG file.I'm assuming you're pinging in DOS and I also assume that you have 802.3 and II set up in there, otherwise you wouldn't be able to ping(?). In your NetWare settings, check the ARP settings. Is the server set to route the requests? That may be your answer. If the client can see the server, and the server can see the client, it comes down to what 3.12 is doing with the server requests.

I'm new to Netware, but I've had lots of hassle with TCP/IP.  I've found that,  with Unix, VAX and NT servers, I always needed to specify a default route (i.e. tell the server the IP address
of the local gateway/router.  Even with my DHCP server, i had to put in parameters for a default route.  That said, I don't think you could ping successfully unless this was done.  
I used to use LSL, then the card driver, then the IPXODI driver, and then whatever driver you want (netx, VLM, etc).  They have to be loaded or unloaded in this order, and when we were troubleshooting, we ran each driver separately, to check each one worked.  You probably know all of this, but if not, check it out.

Ping works, therefore IP is working.
File server not found - therefore IPX not working.

You need to load the card driver on the server and bind to ip
Then load card driver again and bind to ipx.

When you load the card driver, you specify the frame type, I would expect to use ethernet_ii for ip and ethernet_802.3 for ipx, however, there are other options.

You then need to ensure that the client is using ethernet_802.3 for ipx.

So on the server...

load xxxx frame=ethernet_802.3 name=ipx1 (maybe with slot/port)
bind ipx to ipx1 net=xx

load xxxx frame=ethernet_ii name=ip1 (also with slot/port)
bind ip to ip1 addr=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx mask=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

I have left out the ipconfig and tcpip loads, but you must have got them right if ping works...

then on the workstation in net.cfg, you need to ensure IPX is using the same frametype as the server. here is an example card section from net.cfg

Link Driver XXXX             *
    PORT #1 240 20           * These depend on your
    Mem #1 000C8000 2000 /10 * setup
    Int #1 11                *
    Frame Ethernet_II
    Frame ETHERNET_802.3
    Protocol IPX 0 ETHERNET_802.3
