I upgraded my windows 98se to Xp pro with sp2.  I downloaded the Novell Client 49sp2 but it does not find my tree or server.  I am using Novell 5.x.  

thanks.

Hi mangiola,

Is the novell client version compatible for XP

XP with Sp2 will have firewall automatically turned on. Try turning it off to see if that would help

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Hi, SR

I do not have the firewall on.  Yes, I do believe that the Novell Client is compatible with XP since I am able to get it to work on one machine in the office.  I just tried adding it to another machine and it does not work on that one either for some reason.

I am not able to ping the server from the XP boxes that do not work with the Client software nor can I ping it with the windows 98 boxes that do see the server in the GUI.

thanks

Is the machine in which it works also got Sp2 ?

Sp2 has got multiple issues and henceit would be better to check if client is compatible with that or not

Hi Sunray,

I checked the machine with XP that does work and it is on SP1 and NOT sp2.  Although checking my machines with sp2 I did make sure that the firewall option is disabled.  Is there anything else I need to disable in the sp2 machines to make it work?

thanks

it could be possible for SP2 and the client are not compatible.. you may want to check with novell if there is any update that they have got for Sp2 specifically ..

Hi gjohnson99,

The firewall is disabled in sp2.  I use Zone Alarm and I tried disabling that as well.  Still cannot find the tree.

thanks
