I have a mixed network environment, Novell NetWare and Debian GNU/Linux
file servers, Windows & linux clients. The Samba fileserver works
as expected, linux and windows users can browse the shares etc.
The problem is with the novell server & linux clients.
I followed everything as written down in the IPX-HOWTO and NAG/2
(the same content). I configured the kernel for IPX support,
installed the essential packages (eg.: ncpfs). I tried to mount a share
on the Novell fileserver from the linux client as follows:
ncpmount -S SERVERNAME -U user ~/novell - it says theres no such user
in NDS (-601)
When I tried to use
ncpmount -S SERVERNAME -U user.tech ~/novell , it says the the password
what I gave after the password prompt is invalid (-691). I changed the
password to make sure I just type the right password. But got the same
error message. Any ideas? After tried the username and the username.context
I gave up. But it should work somehow and I don't know why it doesn't.
If somebody had the same problem tell me how solved this, please.
groups.google.com just pointed to a list of Novell problem numbers and
to messages which told me to use the ncpmount as I wrote down above.
