I am trying to use Groupwise 4.1a with post office on a Netware 4.11 server.  I can not get the NT Workstation to successfully logon to with the Groupwise Client.  Is there a set protocol for accessing Groupwise from an NT workstation?  If so, What are the steps...?  We are using the Groupwise flawlessly on 3.11 and 95 machines...

Prior to upgrading to GroupWise 5.2 (and soon 5.5), we ran 4.1 without a problem on NT desktops.

Here are some tips: -

GroupWise 4.1 checks with NetWare to determine your user name.  In the NDS world and if using a Novell client, this will be fully distinguished ie. USER.OU.ORG.  If using a Microsoft client for NetWare (the one that comes with NT) this will be relative distinguished ie. USER.

If you are using the Novell Client for NT, you have to make sure the user name that GroupWise uses matches the network id configured for the user in GroupWise admin.  There are two ways to get this to match up: -

1) Go into GroupWise admin (AD.EXE) and update the network id field for each affected user so that the network ID field is set to the fully distinguished name.

2) When you run Notify (NTWIN.EXE) or GroupWise (OFWIN.EXE) run them with the command line switch /@u-<groupwise user id>

All startup switches are detailed in the client online help.

Make sure you have the latest client updates or GroupWise may not run under NT.  The current version is release 5, available from support.novell.com/misc/patlst.htm.
