Ok, now I hope I'm in the right group :-)

Hi there,

I tried to find a solution for my problem by using google and searching this forum, but I wasn't very successful. I have to use the Novell client on my Laptop with Windows XP to login to the network of the University of Ratisbon. Everything workes fine, as long as I am logged in to this network. But when I am trying to work at home (workstation only) Software like Word, PowerPoint, Photoshop or CorelDraw these programs fail to run, need more than a minute to start or crash if I try to open a file. Sometimes (but not always; mostly in combination with the attempt to run PowerPoint) a Novell window opens, asking for my password and trys to login to the university network.
Novell client version is:

Novell Client 4.91 SP5 for Windows

But I had this problems also with lower versions.

I hope, anyone can help me. If you need some more information, please ask, because I am no expert in this field :-)

Thanks a lot,
