We have a netware server that has run fine for several years. Recently it started acting like it was limiting or dropping connections. Looks at the licensing and we use to have unlimited server and client licensing on this server..seem to have gone away. This seemed to become an issue when we had to use the Novell IP client versus Windows IPX client. Any thoughts please? Licensing Log below. Thank you!
