1.0 Overview of the Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows

The Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows provides Windows connectivity to NetWare and OES Linux servers. With the Novell Client, you can browse through authorized Novell directories, transfer files, and use advanced Novell services directly from Windows 8 or Windows 7 workstations, or a Windows 2012 server.

After it is installed on workstations, the Novell Client lets users enjoy the full range of Novell services, including authentication via Novell eDirectory, network browsing and service resolution, and secure and reliable file system access. All services are delivered through industry-standard protocols. The Client also supports the Novell traditional NCP protocol.

The Novell Client for Windows is a separate release from the current Novell Client 4.91 for Windows XP/2003. The Novell Client for Windows supports both the x86 and x64 versions of Windows 8 and Windows 7 and has many of the same features as the Novell Client 4.91 for Windows 2000/XP. A separate iPrint Client that can be installed as a standalone item and used for printing is also available from Novell.
