Mounting Novell Netware Volumes

Mounting Novell Netware Volumes

Post by Marc D. Bumb » Sat, 07 Aug 1999 04:00:00



I have been  able to sucessfully mount Novell Netware  volumes on a RH
6.0a linux box with the following added to my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:

#############################################################################
###########  Added local stuff here
#############################################################################

# Delete any existing incorrect interface
/usr/bin/ipx_interface delall
# Add the correct interface
/usr/bin/ipx_interface add -p eth0 802.3
# Configure it
/sbin/ipx_configure --auto_primary=on  --auto_interface=on
# Connect and mount
/usr/bin/ncpmount -S MYSERVER -U mylogin.my.local.contex -C \
    -P mypasswd -f 777 /mnt            

Has  anyone  been able  to  print  successfully  using Novell  Netware
mounted printers from a linux box?

1. Can't mount Novell NetWare 6 volumes from Linux - help please!

Hello all!

I'm trying to mount Novell Netware 6 volume from linux and get the
following error:

# ncpmount -S MYSERVER -U guest /mnt/novell0
Logging into MYSERVER as GUEST
Password:
ncpmount: NCP Request returned error code in nds login
NDS error code -601.
Login denied.

I've read that there are two ways for a client to authenticate itself to
use Novell File Server: bindery and NDS.

I'm totaly ignorant when it comes to Novell, but since the bindery way
(I've tried the '-b' option, too) don't work, and the ncpmount reports
an error in 'nds login'  I assume it's a NDS problem.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I do not administer the Novell side, so I would apreciate it very much
if you could tell me if something's missing in my ncpmount command
and/or if the Novell admin should give me additional data I need to
successfully mount a Novell volume (I only have network number/frame
type/login/pass/server name).

Thanx for your help,
Best regards,

P.S.
   in some docs on the net, I've read that only Calderas novell client
   is NDS capable and to use it, one must use Caldera Linux - a
   requierment I cannot meet at the moment - is there another solution?
