I wish I would have enough knowledge for this. I can mostly read some C code and even write simple ones.. but kernel stuff is somewhat 'special'
But for some reason, I thought this was what most big Netware instances were running these days for better integration with Windows machines.
At least not in our company. And no other one I know using Netware. Everybody is happy with the Novell Client (which anyhow you require if you want to use ConsoleOne as admin tool). I think we have it active on a total of about 5 servers max, where it is solely used for scan-to-folders from some canon copy machines.
As said, for the moment I work around with ncpmount (based on ncpfs), but the 4GB limitation starts to strike more and more. Nevertheless, thanks anyway for your reply. If there is any testing resource needed: count me in.
The 4Gb limitation seems like something we are not going to be able to overcome in the novfs code so if this is a problem for you, I think the cifs solution is the only one at this time.
The 4GB limitation applies to ncpfs. Whenever I worked with the Novell client for Linux (which brings a novfs module on it's own) the 4GB limitation does not exist. (Which is also one of the buzz advertising arguments of NCL actually).
If this is a real issue, please bring it up to your Novell support representative to be able to give us some resources to deal with it.
unfortunately, in those cases you're always referred to SLED, which is a supported platform and has a working NCL (which of course we're also running here. But being able to participate in the openSUSE development is rather important to me to).
