Problem: How do I mount a Novell server from a Red Hat Linux server?

Solution:

Do the following on the Red Hat server:

  1. /sbin/insmod ipx
  2. /sbin/ipx_configure –auto_interface=on –auto_primary=on
  3. /sbin/insmod ncpfs
  4. /usr/bin/ncpmount –S <Novell_Server_Name> <mount dir> -U <privileged user> -P <password> -C –b

Note: The password can be left out and user will be prompted for the password when the command is run.
-b is for bindery mode.  This is if you are connecting to a 4.x server.
