Novell® NetDrive lets you map a drive from your computer to a NetWare® 6 or Novell iFolderTM 1.0 or 2.0 server without installing the Novell Client. The benefit of mapping a drive through NetDrive instead of the Novell Client is that NetDrive uses Internet protocols to connect to the server, thereby helping you access your network files from multiple locations.
NetDrive ships with NetWare and iFolder, so if you've purchased NetWare 6 or later, you also have the NetDrive software.
Because NetDrive is strictly a client application that is installed on the workstation (except for in a thin-client environment), so there is no server installation or application management needed. However, in order to map a drive using NetDrive, you must have NetDrive installed on your workstation, an active connection to the server (you do not need a browser), and know the IP address or DNS name of your server. Once a drive is mapped, the drive letter that you assigned during the mapping appears in Windows* Explorer and functions just like those that are mapped through the Novell Client.
