Create a different Netware login gui?

5 posts in this topic

Hi There,

Is there anyway to pull function from netware dlls to create my own Netware login. Because there is a custom application that requires Netware login (authentication). Basically I want to create a script to check if Netware is not login, if not it will prompt user to login with the custom netware login GUI (simple gui) then launch the application.

The information I need user to input:

Name:

Tree:

Context:

Please advise. Thank you so much.

Daniel K

This is a link to a page at Novell that talks about customizing the Novell client; I'm not sure you can change the look to your satisfaction, but you can change the main bitmap image.

Another alternative is to use DriveMapAdd for your network authentication before trying to access the needed resource on your NetWare share. Don't know if your credentials are known ahead-of-time; you could completely automate the process if they were.

Don't know if the OP chose this forum for a reason, I acknowledge that my solutions are off-topic.


Yes yes yes, there it was. Youth must go, ah yes. But youth is only being in a way like it might be an animal. No, it is not just being an animal so much as being like one of these malenky toys you viddy being sold in the streets, like little chellovecks made out of tin and with a spring inside and then a winding handle on the outside and you wind it up grrr grrr grrr and off it itties, like walking, O my brothers. But it itties in a straight line and bangs straight into things bang bang and it cannot help what it is doing. Being young is like being like one of these malenky machines.

Thanks but this is not what I am looking at. I want to call a Netware login using dlls or active.

If you try to access a Netware volume then logged in to local workstation only, your Novell Client should popup automatically?

Yes. But when I do a "explorer.exe \\netware01\vol1", it is taking tooo long to timeout.
