WFW 311 logon to both NT40 and Novell 311
Posted on 1997-11-19
Can anybody help us? We need for our WFW 3.11 machines to logon to an NT40 domain and at the same time to our Novell 3.11 file servers.
The network has both NT 40 and Novell 3.11 servers, as well as Exchange Server 5.0 on the NT machine. The old Win3.11 boxes cannot seem to log into both.
The old way for Novell 3.11 was ipx/spx run from dos along with NETX, in the autoexec and config, before starting win3.11.
But it seems if we run IPX from dos before starting Win 3.11, it disables log in to NT.
Novell seems to have new software to log in to Novell servers from within Windows at their website, but: I downloaded it, made installation diskettes and ran the install program. It installed and kept saying it was installing CLIENT software for Win 3.11. However, it insisted on putting LOAD commands into the autoexec.bat as if it were the server, and naturally this failed on booting the Win 3.11 PCs.
OK, we sound confused, cuz we are. What need we do? What can we do?
