Client Service for NetWare (System Services for the Windows Server 2003 Family and Windows XP Operating Systems)

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

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.

Available on: Windows XP Home Edition; Windows XP Professional Edition; Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition; Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition; Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition and Windows Server 2003, Web Edition.
