The Novell 4.91 client runs on a Windows 2000 or Windows XP workstations and allows yourworkstation to authenticate to eDirectory, login to Open Enterprise Servers (NetWare AND Linux Kernels),connect to server file systems, access Novell printers, and more.WHO NEEDSTHENOVELL CLIENTThe Novell client is not specifically required, but most network services are severly crippled without it. As a ruleof thumb, the Novell Client is what makes NetWare and Open Enterprise Server stand tall above other Networksystems. Once you have used the Novell Client, working without it seems like you've taken a trip back into thedark ages.As a standard practice, Marvin Huffaker Consulting recommends the Novell Client be installed and used onenterprise workstations. Exceptions to this rule are rare.ABOUT MARVIN HUFFAKER CONSULTING, INC.Marvin Huffaker Consulting, Inc. is a professional services firm specializing in enterprise level network andsecurity based solutions.

While thiswill work, it's generally best to download the most recent version from Novell's website.1. Go to http://download.novell.com2. Find "Novell Client 4.91 SP2 for Windows 2000/XP/2003, Full Product, English" (Or whatever languageyou need. This guide covers English Only). Note: The most recent client is generally on the top 10most popular downloaded files.3. You should end up with a file called "Novell Client 4.91 SP2 English.exe." The file is a self-extractingexecutable. Run it and extract the files to a location on your workstation. A good place isC:\Novell\ClientInstall, but it really doesn't matter.4. When you are done extracting the client, you should have a folder structure that looks similar to thispicture below.5. Note that at this point, the client is NOT installed. It is simply downloaded, extracted, and ready to beinstalled. The SETUPNW.EXE file is used to actually launch the installation.Illustration 1: Novell Client Installation DirectoryNovell Open Enterprise ServerInstalling the Novell 4.91 ClientPage 2 of 10 2006 Marvin Huffaker Consulting, Inc.http://www.redjuju.com

The following steps walk you through it as well as explainany things you may be wondering about.Step 1 - Launch the InstallationTo launch the Novell Client installation, run the SETUPNW.EXE file as depicted in Illustration 1.Step 2 - Choose the Installation TypeThe first thing you do is choose whether you want a Typical Installation or Custom installation. Youshould choose Custom Installation. A "Typical" installation will not allow you to choose certain options,and it's critical to have control of the process. Some of the default options may not be what you need.Illustration 2: Installation Option Screen. Choose 'CUSTOM INSTALLATION' for better controlof the installation process.Novell Open Enterprise ServerInstalling the Novell 4.91 ClientPage 3 of 10 2006 Marvin Huffaker Consulting, Inc.http://www.redjuju.com

However, it's important to make surethat both are checked.Novell Client for WindowsThis is the actual Novell client. It's not optional and it cannot be deselected.Novell Distributed Print ServicesYou definitely want this. Installing this component, abbreviated NDPS, gives you the ability toautomatically deliver printers, drivers, and configurations to the workstations. Policies can be set toremove printers and add new printers with no end user interaction. NDPS saves an incredible amountof time on end user support and administration. It's an enterprise level solution that works better thanany competitors products or services.If you have NDPS configured on the server already, the NDPS component will immediately enablenetwork printing. If you still need to install NDPS on the server, it's nice to have the pieces already inplace on the workstations.Illustration 3: Component Selection Screen. Select both "Novell Client for Windows" and"Novell Distributed Print Services."Novell Open Enterprise ServerInstalling the Novell 4.91 ClientPage 4 of 10 2006 Marvin Huffaker Consulting, Inc.http://www.redjuju.com

However, they add functionality that you probablywant, so it's best to install them. You should choose the first two options, Novell Modular AuthenticationService and Novell International Cryptographic Infrastructure. The third option, NetIdentity, is notnecessary.Novell Modular Authentication ServiceThis needs to be installed to allow enhanced security and stronger password policies and capabilities.In some cases, NMAS has caused problems with certain workstation functions. This is not typical,andwith a properly configured server there should not be any issues. Besides, it can be disabled on theworkstation if any problems do arise.Novell International Cryptographic InfrastructureThis must be installed if NMAS is installed and helps provide support to some of the NMAS functions.NetIdentity AgentThis does not need to be installed in most cases. Only install this if you know of a specific reason to doso. Otherwise don't.Illustration 4: Additional Product Screen. Choose '"Novell Modular Authentication Services(NMAS) and "Novell International Cryptographic Infrastructure (NICI)"Novell Open Enterprise ServerInstalling the Novell 4.91 ClientPage 5 of 10 2006 Marvin Huffaker Consulting, Inc.http://www.redjuju.com

This is what determines how the workstationcommunicates to the server(s). While to some this is obvious, other people may not know what theyshould choose. Without the right protocol installed, the workstation will not be able to login to the server.The protocol you should use is largely determined by how the servers in your environment areconfigured. However, with NetWare 6.5 and Open Enterprise Server, IP is the protocol of choice.IP Only (Choose This Option)All NetWare servers since NetWare 5.0 have had the capability of using TCP/IP as the core networkprotocol. It is very unusual to find a server in the year 2006 that does not have TCP/IP configured. Forthis reason, choosing IP only is a safe bet. Furthermore, you should allow the installation to remove IPXfrom the workstation, in case it was ever previously configured.IP with IPX CompatibilityWithout providing a long drawn out explanation, this option should NEVER be used unless a highlytrained Novell consultant tells you to use it. Some people mistakenly choose this thinking it is requiredto run both the IP and IPX protocol.IP and IPXYou should not need this, and it may slow down certain network functions. Only select this option if youhave older servers mixed with newer servers. For example, a tree with both NetWare 4.11 andNetWare 6.5 in it.IPXIPX (only) is for systems running legacy NetWare systems that are version 3.1x or 4.1x. These versionsof NetWare require IPX to communicate. If you don't have these versions, you don't need IPX. IPXcauses extra LAN traffic and is considered obsolete.Illustration 5: Protocol Selection Screen. Choose '"IP Only" and "Remove IPX if present.Novell Open Enterprise ServerInstalling the Novell 4.91 ClientPage 6 of 10 2006 Marvin Huffaker Consulting, Inc.http://www.redjuju.com

You want to choose NDS. There is no reason to choose Bindery, and if you do,your network functionality will be severely crippled.NDS(NetWare 4.x or Later)All NetWare servers since NetWare 4.x, including Open Enterprise Server, utilize NDS forauthentication and user management. NDS has since been renamed to eDirectory, but sometimes theterms are interchangeable.Bindery (NetWare 3.1x)You should not use this option unless you actually have a NetWare 3.1x server, and you don't have anyNetWare 4.x or higher servers in your network.Illustration 6: Login Authenticator Screen.
