NW 4 with Linux or DOSEMU
Posted on 1998-09-01
I'm trying to access a Netware 4 server from Linux, either
natively or within DOSEmu. If I try to connect natively, I can't figure out what I should specify as my server login name, since my full NDS path is bruce.96.pupils.users.media-centre.westerford (yes I know it is bloody long). I've tried just bruce, the whole thing, and CN=bruce.OU=96.OU=...O=westerford. The first two don't work and the last one is too long for ncpmount.
If I try to get things going with DOSEmu, pdether and novell_hack then I can get to the point where I can see the F: drive (I can dir it) but if I try to run login or anything else I get General Failure reading drive NETWORK (who's General Failure and why's he trying to read NETWORK :-).
I don't need anything really fancy, I mostly need it to copy stuff I create in Linux onto my account or vice versa.
