Trouble connecting to the eDir tree using wireless LAN
Posted on 2008-10-08
I am having trouble connecting to the eDir through a wireless LAN connection. When I first turn on these laptops they boot to the Novell client login and have the last login username displayed. If I try to login with this user, the system starts, but in Windows mode with no connections to the eDir tree. If I try a user that has not used this PC I then get the message "Failed to login to Windows Workstation".
If I hit the ESC key, or the Cancel button on the client login window the username clears, and then I can enter either the same username or another and the system logs in to the eDir properly.
A couple of notes --
This is not limited to the Dell laptops. I have some Compaq and 2 different versions of Dell desktop PC that are acting the same way.
I have the Windows client configuring the network, not the Dell client. With the Dell client the same results happen.
I am using Proxim AP4000 and AP700 access points.
