Using Netware over different Subnet
Posted on 2006-05-05
Hi.. hopefully simple question.
We have a single subnet network and are about to take on another office that i want to place onto a different subnet. In advance of this i have created a test network on a different subnet and connected up a PC to it.
ie.. main network sits on a 10.0.0.0/16 network (yes i know its too big but thats the history of this place)
and my new test network now sits on 10.5.0.0/16
i have placed an XP machine on there that used to work fine on the previous network and reconfigured IP etc.. (using DNS servers from 10.0 subnet) I then logged in locally and tested some pings.. by Ip and DNS name to both windows and netware servers (all ok)
I then logged off and tried a proper logon through the netware client and it cant see the tree.. the only way i can get it to log on is by manually typing in a server name in the server name drop down (which we normally leave blank) and it will eventually log on - although it takes ages and ages.
any ideas.. what i am missing here? why do i need to type in a server name and why cant i see the tree?! and why does it take so long!
We are using a mix of Netware 6.0 Sp5 and Netware 6.5 sp2 servers.. all IP settings are set correctly on these machines.. (as proved with the pings)
