B.6 FILER (NetWare)

This legacy DOS utility can be used at a workstation to manage files and directories on NSS for NetWare volumes. FILER works with the file system; it doesn’t affect Novell eDirectory™ objects.

Filer is a client-side application, not a server-side application. Install the Novell Client™ for Windows on your workstation, then use the Novell Map Network Drive option in the client menu to map a local drive letter to the sys:\public directory. Open a DOS Command Prompt window, change directory (cd) to the mapped drive, then issue the filer command from the command line.
