Hi at the moment we use a Novell 4.11 server running workstations using either Win95 on Win NT - all of which login to the server using the standard Microsoft Clients.

We have automated the login on both sets of machines so users do not have to type in passwords.

We are about to add another server to the tree so users will have to do a tree login rather than a specific server, theus we need to upgrade to the Novell clients.

OK.....my question is.....are there any utilities that we can install which will automate the login using the novell client for both Win NT an Win 95 ?

Thanks in advance.
