I like to attach a Radio Frecuency terminal to novell 3.12 and 4.x but the watchdog send messages to verify if the terminal is there, but the RF terminals could be there or could be in the restaurant with the employes taking a lunch, the session comes down and when the terminal goes back .... no session, and some times this session causes problems with the server, ¿Can I disable the watchdog?

Two approaches: -

1. Use a router that can spoof NCP watchdog packets on behalf of the user.  When the server sends a watchdog packet, the router responds to it.

2. Increase the Watchdog parameters so the workstations will not be cleared by watchdog during the day:

Set Number of Watchdog Packets = 60
Set Delay Between Watchdog Packets = 10 (time in minutes)
Set Delay Before First Watchdog Packets = 20 (time in minutes)
NOTE: ALWAYS keep Delay Before First Watchdog Packets longer than Delay Between

This will allow a workstation to be missing in action for around 10 hours, however, will clear the connection during the night if the workstation really is not connected any more.

Since you want an urgent answer I suggest that you run some
application that keeps the connection active, like rconsole
or some file management utility that refreshes periodically.
Another solution would be if the applications you run from
the RF terminals keep a log file somewhere. In this case set
this log file to be on a network drive.

Thanks,
Yiannis

anadrash have you tried your sugesstion?
run rconsole and unplug cable
What you see?

And this most wise solution I heard - "Let's our manegers have access to
server console, I hope they will never play with this funny application,
down server/unload pserver etc"

IMHO you should take a "Netware Administration course"

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

This is a comment to aioudine...

There are also courses for language for people who don't
understand the meaning of words "like rconsole or ..." and
prefer to show off using freak expressions like "IMHO" etc.

Let the solutions be implemented and lgmm will know who's
right and who's not.

Thanks again,
Yiannis
