What version of the Netware client are you using?

Novell Client for Windows Vista 1.0, Service Pack 1.
This might be a rights problem. Verify that you have sufficient rights to both the source and destination folders you are working with.

Does this problem happen whenever you try to copy any file on the server to any location on the local machine? Or only for certain files or locations? Try copying a file from a different location to a place you know you have access to on the local drive.

If you have not done so already, you may want to install the latest post-SP1 patch for the Vista client.

This isn't a rights problem, because it happends for any file that I want to copy from the netware to any place in my local machine.
Is I copy the file to a pen drive in the local machine and after that to any place of that machine, it works fine.
Make sure that your Vista client's trusted sites settings are set to trust the local network.
This should be in the IE7 Internet Settings, under the Security tab.
Highlight the Local Intranet option
Click the Sites button
Uncheck the "Automatically detect intranet network" is unchecked
Make sure the other options are checked.

I have some  Windows  XP machines, but none of then with that problem.
Did you try my suggestion?
PauloFerreiraAuthor Commented:
Yes, I did.
The Novell client that I'm using is the last one, and in that case I really need to copy the files to Vista because it's the O.S. of that particular machine. Of course that happends for all machines with vista, because I already tested it.
I think you misunderstood. I didn't suggest using XP, that was another poster.

I was asking if you tried my suggestion of changing the IE7 settings for Trusted Networks to turn off the "Automatically detect intranet network" option.
