Question on ncpfs

Question on ncpfs

Post by Andrew Adl » Tue, 03 Dec 1996 04:00:00

I have a question about using ncpfs for attaching to Novell volumes.

I've installed the appropriate stuff
ncpmount is suid root
-rwsr-sr-x   1 root     root        14441 Sep 25 17:30 /usr/local/bin/ncpmount

and all my files are there
K:~>ls -l .nwclient
-rw-------   1 andy     users          13 May 29  1996 .nwclient
K:~>cat .nwclient

and it allows me to log on to the lan when i'm root
K:/home/andy>/usr/local/bin/ncpmount -S Meakins -U andy /novell
Logging into MEAKINS as ANDY

But I can't when I'm not:
K:~>/usr/local/bin/ncpmount -S Meakins -U andy /novell
Logging into MEAKINS as andy
cannot to mount on /novell: Operation not permitted

So my question is: What do I do to get ncpmount to allow me
to mount from my user account?

BTW: Aside from that, ncpfs is great. It does all I need.

1. can't get ncpfs to work - 'Cannot open ncpfs'

To: Anyone that can help
Fr: Frustrated Fool

I've got a 1.2.13 system with just about nothing special.  (pppd,
diald, ip_masq, ftp, and sendmail).  I'm trying to add ncpfs.  I can
compile the binaries, and IPX is enabled in my kernel.  I cannot
'insmod ncpfs'.  I get 'Cannot open ncpfs'.  What's going on?  I tried
purging the source and re-untarring it again.  No go.  Any suggestions
out there?
