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

17<screen><userinput># Begin example <filename>~/.nwclient</filename> config file

19Server1/User1 Password
20Server2/User1
21Server2/Guest1 -

23# End example .nwclient config file</userinput></screen>
24
25<para>The syntax for the <filename>.nwclient</filename> file is simple,
26<userinput>server_name/user_name password</userinput>. Be extremely
27careful when creating or editing this file as the client utilities are
28very picky about syntax. There should always be a space immediately
29after the username. If this space is substituted by a tab or multiple
30spaces, you will not get the expected results when attempting to use
31the <application>NCPFS</application> tools. If no password is supplied,
32the client utilities will ask for a password when it is needed. If no
33password is needed, for instance when using a guest account, a single '-'
34should be put in place of a password.</para>
35
36<para>It should be noted that the ncpmount is not intended to mount
37individual volumes because each mount point creates a separate client
38connection to the Novell server. Mounting each individual volume
39separately would be unwise, as mounting all volumes on a server
40under one mount point uses only one client connection.</para>
41
42<para>If you need to set up the <acronym>IPX</acronym> protocol at boot,
43you can install the
44<filename>/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/services/ipx</filename>
45network service script included with the
46<xref linkend="intro-important-bootscripts"/> package.</para>
47
48<screen><userinput><command>make install-service-ipx</command></userinput></screen>
49
50<para>Next install the configurations script,
51<filename>ifconfig.ipx0</filename>. The configuration assumes
52<acronym>IPX</acronym> will be set up on
53<emphasis role="strong">eth0</emphasis>
54and the network frame type is 802.2. You should confirm that these are
55the correct settings and adjust as necessary.</para>
