File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks

Definition of File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks in The Network Encyclopedia.

What is File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks?

A Microsoft Windows 95 and Windows 98 networking component that allows computers running Windows 95 and Windows 98 to share folders and printers so that they can be accessed by Novell NetWare clients and by computers running Windows 95 or Windows 98 with Client for NetWare Networks.

Use the Network utility in Control Panel to install File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks on a computer running Windows 95 or Windows 98.

NOTE

Installing File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks automatically installs the NWLink IPX/SPX-Compatible Transport protocol and Client for NetWare Networks, if these have not already been installed. A bindery-based NetWare server must also be available as a network security provider because File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks does not support NetWare servers running Novell Directory Services (NDS).

You cannot install File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks if File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks is already installed.
