Interoperability with NetWare

Microsoft® Windows® 2000 provides protocols and services that allow you to integrate Windows 2000 networks with Novell NetWare networks. The following sections discuss the IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol (NWLink), Windows 2000 Gateway Service for NetWare, and Windows 2000 Client Service for NetWare.

With these features and other Microsoft interoperability products, your organization can support a heterogeneous environment composed of both Windows 2000 and NetWare servers. You can also migrate from NetWare to Windows 2000 using the Directory Services Migration Tool (DSMigrate) for NetWare, provided with Windows 2000.
