RAS access to Novell NetWare Servers

I'd like to connect my NT4 PC to my university network over a modem so that I can set it up as a proxy for the other PCs on my personal network (using Fire Door or Spaghetti).  I'm having problems at the first hurdle - getting NT to connect to the University network which is through NetWare servers.  Can NT connect to the internet through such a server?  Am I being thick?

normaly Netware is running on IPX/SPX and internet does only trransport TCP/IP. so you dont have a chance to access native to Netware servers.
but there are two possibilities to transport NetWare services via internet.

1. you can tunnel IPX/SPX via IPTUNNEL through internet.
2. you can access directly via NetWare IP

even you decide, yoou have to change something on the NetWare server. And allways you have to install a gateway who translates from tunnel or NWIP back to native IPX/SPX. then you dont have to change any clients who want access to this.

in case you have a direkt link between your office and location of the NetWare server so that both sides of DUN connection are NT 4.0, you can enable IPX/SPX as transport on this connection and you can direct access too. but this can't be done through internet because of restriction to IP. !!!

Discovered it was my own stupidity - I hadn't enabled IPX for use with RAS - only TCP/IP and NetBEUI (Not very intelligent)  Cheers anyway.
