not just SMB
Authored by: altglbrs on Jan 22, '03 11:08:42AM

I have similar problems connecting to a Novell fileserver over appletalk with 10.2. The server doesn't crash, and we're on a 100Mbps network, but our 10.2 machines freeze up when browsing or copying files. The freezes are kinda sporadic, yet very consistent (you don't know when its gonna crash, but it always does).

I'll try to copy some files and it will copy some, then it'll just stop. Spinning ball... Finder dies. Can't launch Terminal. Apps that are already running run fine until you bring up any open/save dialog, then they die. I can take a screen shot when its "crashed" so i know it able to write to the disk.. I can sometimes ssh in (depending on how much further i've crahsed it..) and things work fine until i try to navigate to anything on the remote volume, at which point the session dies.

Anyone know what might be going on? I'm thinking its novells appletalk service.. we're running netware 4 something..

not just SMB - Novell

hi there

just wanted to let you know, that novell netware 4 is incompatible with mac os x (it's the novells appletalk implementation). you will need the newest netware (6 or higher) to work with mac os x and novell netware). hope this helps.
