If you have Windows for Workgroups 3.11 running on a Novell network, Windows for Workgroups will support direct hosting only on machines running Novell's ODI drivers.
Direct hosting is a new feature in Windows for Workgroups 3.11 that allows the virtual redirector to interface with the IPX/SPX Compatible protocol, bypassing NetBIOS. This new technology allows the redirector to transfer data faster across the network.
For direct hosting to work correctly, the IPX/SPX Compatible protocol must be installed. This protocol cannot be installed on machines running IPX.COM or ArcNet; therefore, direct hosting does not work on these machines.
