We are mounting a Novell server from a Red Hat and it is mounting fine but keeps losing it's connection.  I have tried using the t and r switches to increase the retries and timeouts but this hasn't helped.  It will then give an i/o error.

Have you checked /var/log/messages?  ncpfs normally logs to syslogd for errors only, you may find the reason that it is unable to talk in there..

Alternatively you could always force the mount via tcp instead of udp using the -s option for memory... check the man pages first.

If that doesn't work you might have more success using the NetWare NFS Services to export the directory and then mounting it on the redhat server this way.

sorry,

currently we are mounting via TCP. this works, but seems to "unmount" the Novell fs after about an hour. we tried changing the timeout, but that did not seem to affect anything.

This works really well now, it turns out that it was an unrelated network issue. Once we used the switch to increase the timeout, then we were good.
