Hello,

I'm a lone Linux/Novel Client user in a sea of Windows/Novell Client users.  We recently switched from a "traditional" single-fileserver NetWare structure to a SAN that uses a cluster.  Our Novell admin migrated everyone's folders from the old fileserver to the SAN, and changed login scripts accordingly.  I messed around with my Novel Client settings for a day and eventually got it to connect to the cluster and map everything just like it did in the old configuration.  The only problem now is that my connection to Novell seems to time out after approximately 20 minutes.  People using the Novel Client on Windows do not have this problem, and they can stay connected all day.  I used to be able to stay connected all day, but since switching to the SAN I can't.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much.
