MARS_NWE problem

Hi!

I've got a problem connecting a DOS-Client via Netware-Software (V.4.11) to the MARS_NWE server on my Linux. Mapping directories works but everytime I try to use the printer, CAPTURE fails with an "unexpected error". After displaying this error there is a new file in the spool directory with a length of 0.

When I'm using Win95 on the same (client) computer, everything works including the printer sharing.

Has anybody a suggestion about a reason this happens?

Thanx
B.

Sounds like it could be a permissions problem - what are your perms on the directory?

The spool directory ("SYS:PRINTER" for Netware or "./SYS/printer" for LINUX) and all its subdirectories are worldwritable (chmod 777). However, everything works with a Win95 client!

How the hell (sorry if that offends sensitive Amricans!) did you get MARS_NWE to work with a '95 client at all?

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Hi, manic! Didn't you notice I want to make DOS work, not Win95! I only made a connection with Win95 to test mars_nwe.

Maybe your mars_nwe is to old.
Please make shure that the version of mars_nwe you use is Version 0.99pl2 (in SuSe Linux distribution 5.0 the file /etc/nw.log shows the version)
other 0.99 Versions may work but versions like 0.97 or before show sometimes a strange behavoir.

Gee! Yes, it works! But it only works with the original Netware-"CAPTURE". The mars_dosutils from Martin Stover ("net capture ...") still get an error. I really was surprised that there is already a new release of mars_nwe, because I had already used Version 0.98pl11.

Thanks to henrich for your quick answer!
