I have mysterious problems trying to
start OS/2 Requester (I need to connect
to OS/2 LANserevr).

  Steps performed:
  - NetWare client upgraded to 2.12
    (I need also to connect to Novell
     servers)
  - FixPack 3 has been applied
    (I am using OS/2 v4)
  - Files/printer client (Peer)
    has been installed several days
    ago

   The requester (NET START REQ) fails
to start and exits after timeout. The
details of configuration may be supplied (I use NE2000-compatible
network adapter with NE2000-compatible
driver for OS/2). All checks
recommended for NET3060 error has
been made. No result.

  I need suggestions on what to do.

I need some more info on your setup, but from your description,
it sounds like you have the following:

1. You connect to Netware servers. This was setup first and is
working.
2. You have added the peer services.

In this case, check out your MPTS setup (may also be shown as
'adapters and protocol services'). What protocols do you have
connected to your adapter? You probably need to set up 'Netware
Netbios emulation' if you use Netware as your primary protocol.
I don't have any experience using this - I do it the other way
around, because I only occasionally need Netware services. I
think you will also need to re-install the netware configuration
(you can use your existing config. as the source directory) and
probably tell it to add Netbios emulation.

In fact, when I applied TCP/IP and MPTS
patches, the problem vanished. Thanks for
your comments, Sbufton, as you have
suggested several more ideas on how to
set up network services.

I suppose your assistance is worth the price I was offering.
