Couple of questions that may not go any futher than question number one.

1. Can a XP Home Edition PC be hooked up to a network using the Novell Client?

2. If so, where can one download IPX.

3. If any other info would help, please feel free to share.

Thank you,

I would think XP should be able to do IPX, did Microsoft stop supplying the IPX drivers with XP? IPX isn't nearly as popular as TCP/IP, so its possible they don't supply that driver with their newer OSes.

Since IPX was THE Novell supported networking protocol, I'd try looking there. Actually, I'd probably google for 'IPX XP' to start with...

I suspect that XP-Home, which is not able to connect to domains, may have a similar issue with Netware networks. Microsoft assumed that anything more than workgroup computing would be donewith XP-Pro.

Thanks for the help guys but it seems it was a lost cause. XP/HE doesn't come with IPX as an option(only TCP/IP) and I couldn't find anywhere to download IPX, or if is even able to be downloaded. The customer I'm helping will just have to upgrad to Pro for this one.

Thanks,

Rus
