I have a client with a Powermac 7300/200 with the Apple 12" dos compatibility card. On the dos side he is running Win95, hooking to a novell 4.11 server. He can logon to the server using the Novell 16 bit client, using the MacOdi driver for the dos card. Now, we have upgraded his novell client to the  Novell Client32 (32 bit client), and the only known way to make this work is to bind the ipx/spx 32 bit protocol to the  existing MacOdi protocol (16 bit). This causes problems with 32 bit betrieve engines. Question: Does anyone know of a 32 bit odi driver for the Apple Dos card that is novell compatible? reply to keith@microagepei.com

Thanks!!

Issue
Certain Macintosh models come with an optional DOS card that enables the Mac to function both as a Mac and a DOS machine. This type of Macintosh will use the same ethernet interface for both the Mac and the DOS networking needs. When the Mac has Windows 3.1 installed, the MACODI.COM driver, which comes with the computer, is used for networking. If the Macintosh has Windows 95 installed on the DOS side and is attempting to use Client 32 for Win95, Windows 95 does not recognize the MACODI.COM driver as a 16-bit driver. The user should follow the following steps in order to get this to work.

The following steps are done from the DOS side of the Macintosh.

1. Install Client 32 using the Novell/Anthem NE2000 compatible (Novell) 32-bit driver adapter.

2. Upon completion of the install, go to customize and then to the properties of the NE2000 compatible adapter. Change the driver from 32-bit to 16-bit.

3. Click OK and allow the changes to be made to the system. DO NOT CLICK "YES" TO REBOOT THE COMPUTER! CLICK "NO"!

4. Go to a DOS box and edit the AUTOEXEC.BAT. The install should have made a directory under the NOVELL directory called NWCLIENT. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file will run several files from this directory including NE2000.COM. Replace the NE2000.COM with MACODI.COM. Save the file.

5. Copy the MACODI.COM to the C:\NOVELL\NWCLIENT directory. Edit the NET.CFG file in this directory to match the settings on the MACODI.COM driver and card.

6. Reboot the Macintosh. The card/driver should now function properly.
