I have a Netware 5.1 Server which was set up as "Pure IP with IPX Compatibility"  I now find it desirable to have IPX on the network.  Is ther any way to do this without completely reinstalling Netware on the server?

This is currently the only server on the network.  All workstations are running Windows 98SE and Novell Client 3.32.

What I want to do is to have a printer attached to a workstation available as a network printer without a user logged in.  It appears, to me, that this can only be accomplished by running NPRINTER.EXE at the workstation and NPRINTER requires an IPX connection.

No simply enable the enable the protocol using inetcfg and assign it an IPX net number.  Then run a DSREPAIR.  Are there other servers in the tree?

Don't even need to do that, although it might be easier, depending on experience.  If you are not using inetcfg, add the appropriate load and bind statements in Autoexec.bat.  You can add and remove protocols bound to a NIC without any consideration of reloading the OS.

geoffryn has a good question...want you want to do has a lot with which servers and clients would have IPX bound.....so what are you trying to accomplish???

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

Accepted.
Initial response by geoffryn provided a viable path for enabling IPX on a server.

My apologies.  About the time I posted this, powers beyond myself decided that our Netware server should bew replaced by Windows Server 2000, and I subsequently lost interest in this question.  My thanks to all who responded.  I am passing the points to geoffryn per WayBadMojo's suggestion.
