Netware and ip/ipx gateway

If i install a ip/ipx gateway on a netware server,can I prevent other computers from the internet to know what os is in the server( I mean, can they know that this is a netware server)?
If I can, How should i do it?

Hi

yes it is verry simple: use a firewall!
maybe tell your firewall (many routers can also do this) not to route pachages with the destination address (MAC) of your NW-Server.
A cheep Firewall (package-filter and more) is LINUX

By the way: for experts it is realy easy to detect the OS by the way a machine behaves.
