new Windows XP gateway laptop has most recent Netware client installed. Laptop can get to the
internet and seems to have correct IP address, DNS, etc. but could not connect to the Novell 6.5 tree.
I entered in a host file entry to allow IP address to be associated to the Novell Server.
I now can ping the server by name before I could not. DNS ? I was able to login twice but failed to see the tree several times and the login failed. Success was generally after I have pinged the server by name..
could the name/ip be cached somehow and that is when I connect ? and when it fails there is nothing in the cache to help the connection ? please advise any ideas ??
