ppp and login to netware using ipx

ppp and login to netware using ipx

Post by Peter Blombe » Wed, 31 Jul 1996 04:00:00

When reading the man page for pppd I read that some of the options are
for ipx.

Can anyone tell me of some documentation describing how to setup and
enable remote login from a windows pc via a linux pc to a novell
netware LAN using ppp?

My setup is:
Netware 3.12 using IPX
Linux 1.2.13 (with IPX support in the kernel) setup for dial in ppp
WIN95-PC using TCP/IP & IPX



1. ncpmount a Netware server that uses IP rather than IPX?

I am running Mandrake 8.1.  I have read the IPX howto, etc...  
We have file servers runing Netware 5.x, but the Netware servers are
using IP rather than IPX.  How do I get this to work?

If I attempt to mount a drive I get the following error:

Logging into VHAMIS02 as MMYNSTED

ncpmount: No referrals (-634) in nds login
Login denied.

I do not know what I am doing wrong... It seems like I would need to
login to the NDS tree or something?  nwlogin does not exist.  If I try
to install nwclient from novell, I get the following error.

The newest nwclient I can find is 4.1.6-4, and that seems quite old.

error: failed dependencies:
        libstdc++.so.27 is needed by nwclient-4.1.6-4
        libm.so.5 is needed by nwclient-4.1.6-4
        libc.so.5 is needed by nwclient-4.1.6-4

I have libm.so6 and libc.so.6 and

 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 -> libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3*
 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.a.3 -> libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.a
 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 -> libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so*

I am ready to give up as I can find no more documents or anything to
try.  Any ideas?
