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?

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!
