  • When I attempt to connect to the Novell server using novelclient I get the following error message:

    Error: Could not mount server.
    failed: Server BLOGGS belong to tree SMITH and you are not authenticated to it.

    I am running RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 WS, I have successfully connected to my Novell shares in the past using novelclient on Suse Linux.  The account details I am using to connect work just fine when I connect via the Novell Client under Windows.

    Any help with resolving this problem would be most appreciated.

      I hate to say me too, but I am getting this same error. nothing more to add really except that I am on Mepis/debian sid.  . I thought when you chose NDS it authenticates to the tree..

        well i got the problem solved after all, with just restarting the server, dont think that will help you all, but it might be worth a try if you didnt do it so far :-)

      I have the same problem on Fedora Core 3.

       
    • This is still a problem for me.  Does anyone have a solution yet?

      I had this problem running the client in Fedora Core 3. When I ran ncplogin from the command line I got a seg fault.

      I managed to get everything working by updating my version of ncpfs from 2.4 to 2.6: ftp://platan.vc.cvut.cz/pub/linux/ncpfs/ncpfs-2.2.6.tar.gz

      I'm also having this error. I think I have updated to the ncpfs version listed above (2.6), but I'm not sure how to tell. I'm running Fedora Core 4.

       
      • If you have installed ncpfs from RPM, you can see the version by typing:

        rpm -q ncpfs

        I know this doesn't solve the original problem posted in this thread, but it (hopefully) answers this particular question.
