I'm in the prcess of setting up a FreeBSD machine in order to replace
an existing Novell 3.12 server.
I thought I could use 'ncplib' to connect to the Novell server and in
this way transfer the data directly.
I get a series of 'flag 12' kernel panics and it reboots itself.
this happens instantly when I try a 'ncplogin' but can also happen
To get to this point I
compiled IPX into the kernel
setup /boot/loader.conf to load the if_ef, nfs, and ncp modules
put an infonfig line in /etc/rc.conf to setup the ipx protocol on the
all that appear to be happy with life, unless I try to USE it. >-:
now, I thought I'd install the port (I was just using what installed
when I installed FreebSD5.2.1-R fro CD last week) but none of the
mirrors have the file ncplib-1.3.4.tar.gz
