I connect to Novell file servers and print queues daily from work, but I believe it is via appletalk... so that is just a matter of having the admins turn it on (I think).

On the other hand, I believe that Novell (5 or 6) supports native WebDAV file access which might be a better solution... worth looking into.

Oops...I probably should have mentioned that our Novell server doesn't have the Appletalk service turned on...caused problems with nightly backups, our IT guy said.

I'll ask about the WebDAV access, thanks!

IMHO, netware 6 has a native file protocol feature that serves up files in protocols like WebDAV, NFS, SMB, and AppleShare.OS X supports all of these, but it requires NW 6, with at least one of these protocols turned on

I should have added that we're on Netware 4 and probably won't upgrade anytime soon ;-).
