Novell 5 Server only respond IP pings from router; ping from workstations and printers not work
Posted on 2004-08-27
I need some help here, since I know very little of Netware:
I have one Novell 5 server running both IP and IPX. I also have in the same LAN workstations running Win98 and XP with Novell client and some HP printers; and also have a Cisco 2600 router there.
The workstations and the printers can only communicate with the Novell server using IPX, it do not have IP connectivity to the Novell Server. if I try to ping the Novell server from the workstations I get no answer.
But from the Cisco router I can ping the Novell server Ip address just fine.
I remember something about checking the Novell ethernet encapsulation, that it should be a determined type, etc... but I do not remember now.
Do you guys know what can be the problem?
