    Hi there, I am currently trying to get the netware client version 3.40 to
    work inside a Windows 98 SE guest pc in virtual pc 2004 with IPX. I have
    tcp/ip working fine and browsing the local network, it can also surf the
    Internet as well. However with the Netware client installed I cannot "see"
    the Netware servers. When I try to login to the Novell network that portion
    fails. It's as if IPX isn't even passing through from the guest pc out to the
    network. I have read that this should be able to work but I haven't been able
    to figure out what's going wrong. I have set the networking settings to use
    my network adapter, i'm not using shared mode or local mode. I did try using
    shared mode earlier to see if that would work but that didn't work either. I
    also installed the netware client on the host pc to see if that would work
    and it did. So the host pc can see the netware servers fine using IPX but the
    guest pc installed with Win 98 cannot. Btw, the host pc is Windows XP
    Professional with SP2 and all the latest updates and the Virtual PC
    installation is installed with SP1 for Virtual PC.
    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    -Regards, Raj

  2. Hi Raj,

    This should work (and I have setup such configurations before).
    Unfortunately from your description I cannot see anything that is
    obviously the problem.
