If the network includes Novell NetWare Services and you want to enable remote access to NetWare Servers, you must do the following:
Configuring Novell logon settings—Use this procedure to determine the logon credentials that are used during the configuration of users’ access to the Novell NetWare Servers. Note that, during the configuration of the NetWare Servers, only the servers and shares that are enabled to the user with which you log on, will be available in the File Access window. Configure the settings that determine how you log on to Novell Directories in order to gain access to Novell NetWare servers.
Enabling access to NetWare Servers—Use this procedure to enable remote access to Novell NetWare servers. To do this, you must set up authentication with Novell Directory Services (NDS).
Configuring Novell logon settings
To configure Novell logon settings
Access the File Access window, as described in Accessing the File Access Window.
In the left pane of the File Access window, under General, click Novell.
In the right pane, the Novell Logon settings are displayed.
Select one of the following options:
Using Windows User Name—Use the same credentials you used when you logged onto the File Access window.
Using the Following User Name and Password—Enter credentials with which to log on.
Make sure the credentials you assign here enable you to view all the NetWare Servers to which you wish to configure access, such as the credentials of a Novell administrator.
Click Save, and then click Logon.
The system logs you on to the Novell NetWare Services. When you configure Novell NetWare Servers, the servers and shares that are enabled to the user you define here, are displayed in the File Access window.
Proceed with configuring remote users’ access to domains, servers, and shares, as described in the procedure that follows.
In order to log on to a different tree, enter the applicable credentials, and click Logon.
Only one set of credentials can be saved in the Novell Logon window.
Any time after the initial configuration, in order to modify the configuration of remote users’ access to the NetWare Servers, you must log on to the Novell NetWare Services by using the Novell Logon window.
