Solved Can ping Novell server, cannot login or brows

May 17, 2011 at 11:01:58
Specs: Windows XP
Ok, I don't know that much about Novell but here's the situation. On an XP workstation I cannot login to novell, I cannot find the tree or the server. Using client 4.91 sp5. All other workstations can log in. I can ping the server by name and IP. I can access all of the other servers and workstation. When I try to access the server using windows explorer, it cannot find the server either by name or IP address. When I try to map a drive to the share in windows, it does seem to try to connect. This workstation had no problems up until a couple days ago. I have reinstalled the client, already.

✔ Best Answer
What version of novell server is running?

Have you tried to disable windows firewall or third party firewall, if installed, temporarily, to figure out, where the problem is?

Thanks, was a firewall issue. User upgraded his firewall/virus without knowing about it. I didn't check because it was supposed to locked down. Thanks for the second idea, saved me hours of troubleshooting.
