WINXP Novell Client 3.91 cannot see Novell Server
Posted on 2005-05-09
I have three computers running WINXP that suddenly cannot see any novell servers. We have 4.10, 5.0 and other server versions running, but the client cannot detect any servers. These three machines all had client version 4.83 SP2. The client was uninstalled along with the IPX protocol and the new client (latest greatest from novell) loaded. When loaded the IP/IPX was selected in custom install. One began seeing the servers again. The second one also found the server(s), but then after a reboot can no longer see any servers. A third computer started this behavior this morning. I haven't yet figured out was is going on, but it seems to be affecting more machines so maybe it is an Ethernet switch, server, virus, or maybe a Microsoft update. I haven't yet determined if only servers running IPX or servers running IP or servers running both are affected differently.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
