Accessing NetWare 6.5 SP8 running CIFS

Novell Netware
5 Comments1 Solution3037 ViewsLast Modified:
I am trying to access a NetWare server running the CIFS (NFAP) protocol.  I have CIFS configured correctly because I can access the NetWare server from a Mac running Snow Leopard.  I verified this works by unloading CIFS (CIFSSTOP) from the netware console and it disconnects on the Mac.

When I try to connect with a Windows XP or Windows 7 box, I get the following message: SERVERNAME-W is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use the network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.  The remote procedure call failed and did not execute.

I have reconfigured CIFS numerous times per the Novell documentation and I have also set the NTLM preferences and forced Netbios over TCP and disabled IPv6 as some other posts have suggested.  I still have no luck with my Windows machines.  Again, the Mac has no problems connecting.

Any thoughts are appreciated.
