GroupWise client not connecting to Post Office
Posted on 2004-09-23
I have recently installed the GroupWise 6.5 Client on my Windows 2000 Server machine but I am unable to connect to the main Post Office on a GroupWise 6.5 server. (NetWare 6.5)
When started, GroupWise attempts to connect to the Post Office displaying the message:
"Connecting to Post Office Agent at 10.10.10.17:1677"
It then displays a dialog "Novell GroupWise Startup" asking for User ID, Password, Address etc. The settings are all correct (port number is left as 0 because it defaults to 1677 I think).
However, when I try to connect it says:
"The password entered is not correct.
Type the correct password. Remember that passwords are case sensitive."
The password is correct though. I have changed it multiple times with the same results.
I used the startup switch /@u-? to find out what settings where being used on another computer and they are exactly the same, but that one connects fine. (Even without a password).
I assume the password is automatically submitted if you are logged into the Novell Client. Which I am able to do fine on both computers. Its just GroupWise that is playing up.
Any help please? Thanks!
