SUMMARY

Windows for Workgroups (WFWG) provides the functionality to work with Novell NetWare networks versions 2.1 and later. This allows a Novell NetWare client workstation to become a Windows for Workgroups workstation, thereby providing access to Novell NetWare servers and/or Windows for Workgroups servers.

MORE INFORMATION

The following additions are made when Novell NetWare connectivity is enabled in Windows for Workgroups:

AUTOEXEC.BAT
------------

MSIPX
NETX

CONFIG.SYS
----------

LASTDRIVE=P
DEVICE=C:\<WFW 3.1 dir>\MSIPX.SYS

PROTOCOL.INI
------------

[network.setup]
 transport=ms$ipx,MS$IPX

EtherExpress 16 NIC.)
[ms$ipx]
 drivername=IPX$
 mediatype=Novell/Ethernet (depending on the NetWare configuration)

SYSTEM.INI
