    Novell clients can not see the Netware 6.0 server but can see the network

    HI;

    Since we moved from DSL to Fiber Optic, the Novell clients can not see
    anynmore the Netware 6.0 server.
    The DSL Linksys router had DHCP enabled, and gave IP addresses from
    192.168.5.100 - 254. The Netware server had 192.168.5.254 in its
    AUTOEXEC.NCF file. All Novell clients could then access the Novell server.

    Now, we connected the Novell server and clients to the new Fiber Optic
    router which has DHCP enabled, and gives IP addresses from 192.168.1.1 -
    254. Using the INETCFG, I changed the IP Address to 192.168.1.254 and the
    gateway address to 192.168.1.1 in AUTOEXEC.NCF. I reinitialzed the system.
    I did not transfer the LAN, Protocol commands in AUTOEXEC.NCF to
    INETCFG.NLM. Only three Novell Clients could see the Novell server. Five
    Novell client could not see anymore the Netware server.
    All Novell clients run the Novell Client software on MS WIndows XP Prof or
    Windows 2000. Some of the five run also the IPX/SPX protocol.
    The problem is definitely with this IP Address change in the Netware
    server. Only the IPX protocol is enabled in the Netware server.
    Did I forget a step in changing the IP address in the Netware Server?
    Should I have done something else? Please help me.

    First, make sure you are able to ping from the client to the NetWare
    server.

    Second, check out this URL for things to change when modifying the
    server IP http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/486.html

    You can also change the local DHCP scope on the new unit to serve
    to same IP subnet as the old DHCP router. It doesn't have to be
    192.168.1.x
