Service Name: NWCWorkstation
Executable Name: svchost.exe -k netsvcs
Log On As: LocalService
Description: Provides access to files and directories as well as resources on NetWare networks.
With Client Service for Netware, you can access file and print resources on Netware Servers that are running Novell Directory Services (NDS) or bindery security (Netware versions 3.x or 4.x) from your computer.
The Client Service for Netware does not support the IP protocol and therefore cannot be used to interoperate with NetWare 5.x in an IP-only environment. To do this, you must load the IPX protocol onto the Netware 5.x server, or use a redirector that is compatible with Netware Core Protocol (NCP) and supports native IP.
If this service is stopped or disabled, access to file and print resources on NetWare networks will no longer function unless the Novell Client for NetWare is installed.
