Loggin onto Remote IPX Novell 4.1 server via local Token-Ring on Windows 3.1
Posted on 1997-10-01
I am trying to connect a machine which is currently running on Windows 3.1 and is connected locally to a Novell 3.12 server using a Toker-Ring Card to a Remote Novell 4.10 server running IPX / ethernet. A bridge is routing the packets to the remote server. I was able to connect a Windows '95 local station to that remote server, which means that the communications problem has been solved. On the Windows '95 station I had to enable the buffer size to 16K (IPX ADVANCED). Source Routing is enabled between the servers. From the Windows 3.1 station I can see the remote server with the SLIST command, but CANNOT logi into the remote server. Is there a parameter which has to be enabled in the NET.CFG? Everything works on one way (Novell 4.10 and connecting to the 3.12 Remote), From a local station to the Novell 4.1 server, I can log on to both servers the 4.1 and Novell 3.12 (Remote).
I know it might sound confusing but it is simpler than it sounds. Please let me know if I am not being clear so I can explain better.
