-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
We are planning to phase out IPX at our site & I am in the process of transferring from a warp 4 system running the IPX client (which has worked reliably for years)
to an ECS1.1 system running IP only.
I currently use VPC to access the Windows Tools that I have to use.
As has been noted Netware management tools are moving in the web direction so using them is becoming less of a problem.
The two areas providing the most challenge are: effective file access/management
& extracting info from the NDS.
I am currently using netdrive to map drives, this seems stable using a netware 6
server running FTP and setting netdrive FTP type to UNIX (Ultrix).
This works well from a command window but is very slow with gui tools.
I am looking at extracting info from the NDS using LDAP tools (ldaptools.zip from Hobbes)
which will let me extract publicly available data from the NDS.
I think an update of the Netware Client, while it would be very nice in the short term, is a bit late now. Netware are moving into the web access route & away from
the Netware client, so a new client would be likely to be being phased out as soon
as it was completed.
It would be nice to see improvements in the above products, LDAP / Netdrive, to deal
with current requirements which may easier to achieve than a rewrite of the netware client.
