IPX netware mounting...

Post by Peter Petraki » Sat, 10 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I've been converting my CS professor to Linux lately and now he has a PC
in his office exclusivly for linux so I can teach him. Today we tried to
mount a net drive on a netware server. The the drive is called MCSERVER
so I recompiled the kernel with ipx support, rebooted, and them went to
linuxconf to set it up. We find the right place to do and tell linux
what the drive is called and where we want our mount point and that's
about it. It's my first time doing this sort of thing so I though we
were done. Ok did that the mount point was created. I then go to mount
it, ok, I then go in and there's nothing there. We them decide to reboot
and when the kernel boots I see something to the effect of MCSERVER bad
address. What did I miss and is there an IPX how-to around ? Specs P166
with RH 5.1 stock. Thanks alot.

You only mention IPX -- are you also using NCPFS?  (You need it to mount
Netware volumes.)
