I have a Windows 7 system running XP mode. We can't see the 3.12 Novel server. I have the IPX protocol and netware client installed on the XP virtual system. I have ready that this will work but am having issues.

Any Help would be appreciated.

Most likely this will not work in the default mode where XP mode uses NAT. Check out the Link below, it shows how networking is setup and used in Virtual PC _(XP Mode), and try changing it to "Bridge" mode. Chances are that, because then the virtual NIC of the XP system will be an adapter in the same LAN of the rest of your PC's, then your XP PC will see the netware server, providedyou have installed the novell client on it. Have you by the way thought of upgrading to a more modern netware server OS, version 3.12 is ancient, and from version 5 upwards they use tcp-ip as standard protocol.
