10<para>A config file <filename>~/.nwclient</filename> should be placed
11in the home directory of each user that intends to use <application>ncpfs
12</application>. The permissions on this file should be set to 600, for obvious
13security reasons. The configuration file should contain a single line
14per server that the user will use. Each line should contain
15the server name, the user name, and optionally the password. Below is a
16sample <filename>.nwclient</filename> file.</para>

25
26<para>The syntax for the <filename>.nwclient</filename> file is simple,
27<userinput>server_name/user_name password</userinput>. Be extremely
28careful when creating or editing this file as the client utilities are
29very picky about syntax. There should always be a space immediately
30after the username. If this space is substituted by a tab or multiple
31spaces, you will not get the expected results when attempting to use
32the <application>NCPFS</application> tools. If no password is supplied,
33the client utilities will ask for a password when it is needed. If no
34password is needed, for instance when using a guest account, a single '-'
35should be put in place of a password.</para>
36
37<para>It should be noted that the ncpmount is not intended to mount
38individual volumes because each mountpoint creates a separate client
39connection to the Novell server. Mounting each individual volume
40separately would be unwise, as mounting all volumes on a server
41under one mount point uses only one client connection.</para>
42
43<para>If you need to set up the <acronym>IPX</acronym> protocol at boot,
44you can create the following scripts. These scripts assume <acronym>IPX
45</acronym> will be set up on <emphasis role="strong">eth0</emphasis>
46and the network frame type is 802.2. You should confirm that these
47are the correct settings and adjust as necessary.</para>
