If I turn off the firewall, I can access the NFS system without difficulty using the Novell Client for Vista 1.0. However, with the OneCare firewall on, I get the "The tree or server cannot be found. Choose a different tree or server." error message when I try to connect.
If I open all the TCP/IP ports in the firewall from 1-65535, I can login. I assume I don't need all ports open, but I can not find anywhere a specific list of needed ports (at least not a list that has worked) needed to access Novell servers from a Vista client running the firewall with Windows OneCare. How can I do this?
Once you're authenticated, all communication between client and server will be via NCP, except for iPrint and other web services.
Iprint uses TCP/UDP port 631 (IPP protocol). LPR/LPD uses TCP 515.
Of course, if you have an FTP server it uses 20/21 like normal...
For authentication, if you're using NMAS methods, you may have to deal with additional ports/protocols. These include:
NMAS: port 1242
LDAP: TCP/UDP Port 389
sLDAP: TCP/UDP port 636
Here's a pretty-definitive TID on all the protocols/ports used in Novell products, so you can refer to it if you have problems accessing any services post-login:
Note that it doesn't differentiate between UDP and TCP - that's the only knock I have against it.
