: Netware LAN. I can only guess a couple of scenarios:
: 1. Trying to access other Unix/Linux hosts over Novell LAN
: You probably need to configure the Netware server to route TCP/IP.

Yes, this is what I am trying to do. Unfortunately it seems that our network
superviser is not quite competent with this sort of things. So I would like
to find out what exactly should be loaded on the Netware server to support
TCP/IP. At the moment we can use telnet on our dos machines if ipx and
ipxpkt are loaded, so I understand that our server has some ability to route
tcp packets, but if I load ne2000 packet driver with
pktipx at a dos machine, telnet does not work. And it does not work on
