Are you wanting your NetWare server to be an FTP server, or an FTP client?
I don't totally understand your question.  Do you already have a server setup with FTP on it.  

How you access an FTP server depends on what client you are using.

If you have Windows 9x or NT, you need to add TCP/IP to that workstation.  Then you can FTP the server by going to a DOS prompt (or Start - Run):
FTP <ip address>
FTP <dns name>

If I am off base, please provide more information.

I want to add to a NetWare workstation (DOS not Windows) TCP/IP client and FTP client. I don't want to change anything in the NetWare server (it doesn't support TPC/IP and it doesn't have to support it)

Adjusted points to 150
1) Buy PC/TCP® Client from netmanage

2) Buy Novell LAN WorkPalce 5 for DOS


3) use NSCA telnet suite (
It's worked over packet driver, so
you must learn more about how to configure Packet driver over ODI
