Well I use ncpmount on my work SuSE 6.1/Netware 5.1 box and it works
perfectly. You do have to bind IPX to the interface. This is a fragment
of my /etc/rc.d/rc.local
/usr/bin/ipx_interface add eth0 etherii 0x000000E2
/usr/bin/ipx_configure --auto_interface=off --auto_primary=off
/usr/bin/ipx_internal_net add 0x10000100 1
ncpmount -S <SERVER> -V <VOLUME> /spare/netware -U admin -P <password>
-u 721 -g 100
I dont know why the sleep is needed exactly, It just does!
This makes it easy for me to access the Netware server froma clinet
workstation with only the M$ client. Security is of course wide open!
