    Can't Login Using Microsoft Client

    I am running my notebook with Windows XP SP2.

    I log into a novell network using the Microsoft Netware Client build
    into XP.

    Everything worked fine until last Friday.

    Now I get the error message after the Windows Login as if the machine
    can't find the novell tree (Network path not found). I am shure that my
    context hasn't changed, because I still can login on a PC running the
    Novell Client.

    I fear, that our IT guys have installed new software or patches in the
    Backend, but I can't asked them.

    My question is: Are new Novell Components out there that create
    problems for the Microsoft Novell Client?

    This forum is for the Novell Client for Windows NT (4.0/2000/XP/2003).
    However, the big problem (amongst others) with the Microsoft Client for NetWare is that it
    requires IPX/SPX. NetWare has supported pure IP since version 5.0 (1998), so I'm guessing
    your IT guys have finally removed IPX/SPX.

    Good bet. As a shot in the dark, make sure your IPX frame-type is not set
    to Auto but what your server was running.
    This most likely 802.2 followed by ETHERNET_II and finally 802.3.
