I have a CGI-script written in Delphi, which must access
files on a Netware 3.12 server.
When i install it on a iis4 website with 'anonymous access'
everything works well (installed a user/password under 'anonymous-settings' which is also a Novell user).
But when i disable anonymous logins, and the user indeticate's himself (for example, with same username/password), the CGI-script cannot access the novell-server ????

A couple of points that you need to check.

Firstly the username/password must be valid for an NT account.
Secondly the NT account must be able to access the Novell server which you can test be logging on to the NT box as that user.
Lastly (did I say two points?) do not allow the NT Challenge Response mechanism to be used as the password is encrypted and may not be recognised by the Novell server. In addition the server would require NTFS to be set up on it which I assume that you can't do.

Ok,
things seem to work when using Basic Authentiication.
But only on my own station ?????

When loggin in on other stations (same IE4.sp1 configuration)
and using same username/password the ISAPI-app runs, but cannot connect to the Netware server.

Only difference is that The IIS-Server and my own station are English versions of NT and IE, and other workstations are Dutch version of NT and IE.

Any ideas ?

By the way,

What do you mean with NTFS ?
The NT-server has 2 partitions.
C is FAT.
D is NTFS.

But what has this to do with regarding the Novell-server ?
I have full control over the NT-Server.
I don't suppose you mean NTFS on the Novell Server ????

The point about NT Challenge response is that the password is encrypted so if the password is passed on to allow access to the Novel Server it won't be recognised due to the NT only based encryption. The NTFS bit was a read herring on my part so please ignore (I misread an IIS screen duh!).

Did you try the logon test? It must be the same account that is used to login via the Web Server.
