Novell Netware Client is available free for download by registering with Novell, but the features of this program cannot be best used without having a Novell Netware Server in the Network. The Client Utility is a part of the Novell Netware Server Bundle.
Novell Netware Client is a software developed by Novell Inc which enables the Windows based clients to connect to Netware Servers.
The program allows the user to login to the network and connect to Windows Servers or Netware Servers.
The program connects to bindery or NDS(Novell Directory Services) Servers and authenticates the user in the context .
The user can view the network resources that he is connected to from the Novell Connections option.
Network passwords can be managed from the Novell Client and also the passwords with the users workstations can be synchronised.
Network resources can be accessed when the user has appropriate rights, by mapping to Netware Volumes and specific folders. These mapped drives get automatically added under the list of drives in Windows Explorer. The mapping can be configured to re-connect every time the user logs in to the network.
Network Printers associated with Netware Queues can be captured for printing from a workstation using the Novell client.
Users and Administrators can manage rights to users and groups for network resources using the client.
The System tray icon (N) has most of the features supported by Novell Client.
