NCP Server supports most commonly used code pages. NCP Server by default uses the code page corresponding to the code page used by the Linux server operating system that is specified at install time.
For example, if the Linux server is installed as a Japanese server, NCP Server uses the shift-JIS as its local code page. If the Linux server is installed as a French server, NCP Server uses the CP850 as its local code page.
Some examples of code page are CP437, CP850, CP737, CP866, CP874, CP949, SJIS, BIG5, and GBK. For a complete list of available code pages, open a terminal console, then enter
iconv --list | more
If you want NCP Server to use a code page that might be different than the one that is set for the Linux server, you must specify that code page in the /etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf configuration file. After you modify the initial setting, the code page for NCP Server does not change if you change the code page used for the Linuxserver. You must modify the settings separately as needed.
To set the code page parameter by using Novell Remote Manager for Linux:
In a Web browser, access Novell Remote Manager for Linux on the server, then log in as the root user.
The URL is the IP address of the server (such as 192.168.1.1) and port 8009.

In, type the new code value you want to use for NCP Server, then click .
On the Server Parameter Information page, verify that the new setting is displayed for theparameter.
To manually edit the value in the /etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf file:
Open the /etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf configuration file in a text editor.
Add the following command line:
Replace Code_Page with the code page you want to use for NCP Server. It can be the same or different than the code page currently assigned.
Save the file.
