Subject: OS/2-NetWare Users List: Warpstock 2003 presentation: Connecting OS/2 Clients to NetWare Networks

Mark, I thought it best to forward your last post on the wireless list to the NetWare list. So you think I should really do a NetWare 6 install there? I'd figure that would bore the OS/2 crowd to sleep. I figured I'd come with a NetWare 6 server on a notebook and connect to that, going through a requester install on the client first.

It sure is easier to connect OS/2 to NetWare than it is to Windows servers, though. That should be something of interest to everyone!

I could be persuaded, Mark.    Do you think we'll have enough
OS/2-NetWare users in attendance? I'd truly love to do a whole "how do
you connect to NetWare 6" presentation (especially since Novell seems to
completely overlook us these days). Did you have any particular areas of
interest here? Particular NetWare version(s), printing, security,
backup, management? (Some of the java tools actually work fairly well
under OS/2, and some third-party java apps - I'm thinking mainly of the
Veritas Backup Exec 9 admin console - work better under OS/2 than under
