NetWare DOS Client

Portlock Storage Manager version 2.08 and above does not need himem.sys loaded. The NetWare DOS Client does need himem.sys loaded. However, do not use emm386.exe in your config.sys. On some newer machines, the NetWare DOS Client will hang depending on the version of DOS and himem.sys that you are using. You may need to try different versions of DOS / himem.sys. We have had the best results with the DOS from Windows 98SE. Note: Novell is no longer supporting the NetWare DOS Client. As an alternative, you can create a boot diskette that uses the Microsoft protocols to pull images from a Windows workstation. See the next section.

DOS and Network Boot Disks:

Note: These boot disks are provided by other companies. We only provide these links to assist our customers and we do not endorse or support these boot disks.


Note: Beta versions are only available when a major new version is being released.
