Enabling NCP connections.

In order to enable NCP connections, you need to enter into DEBUG mode on the iChain proxy server. See "Accessing Proxy Internals" on page 171 of the iChain 2.1 Admin guide. Then you LOAD EDIT TUNE.NCF from the Netware command prompt and look at the comments there.

Use caution!! Incorrectly enabling NCP on your iChain server could expose it to the Internet, allowing anybody to login to your iChain box and delete or modify files on the SYS volume.

A cautious approach would be to enable it only temporarily to make minor changes and then disable NCP.
