ok,
 Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 7 not support IPX/SPX


1. Can You install/configure TCP/IP on Netware 4.1 ?

2. If You use Windows 7 PRO, You can use WIndows XP mode ( virtual machine with Windows XP ), You can install and configure Novell Client for WIndows XP (it support ipx/spx)  or You can install IPX/SPX in Windows XP )

Windows 7 will not support IPX. Netware 4.1 will not support IP (that is, it will not support the Netware Core Protocol (NCP) over IP)

Your best solution is to replace the Netware 4.1 server (eol for over 10 years) for something more current, or use XP mode in Windows 7 as Biniek suggested (with XP eol since april 8 2014)

I think to  use  XP   , did't update to win7 , because this is company's old server without support anymore.

I also know  nothing about netware4.11
