15.9. NetWare Server Emulation

There are two free software emulators for NetWare fileservers under Linux. lwared was developed by Ales Dryak and mars_nwe was developed by Martin Stover. Both of these packages provide elementary NetWare fileserver emulation under Linux, allowing NetWare clients to mount Linux directories exported as NetWare volumes. While the lwared server is simpler to configure, the mars_nwe server is more fully featured. The installation and configuration of these packages is beyond the scope of this chapter, but both are described in the IPX-HOWTO.
