Novell Client for Windows tips & tricks

Download locations

Windows XP 64bit, Windows 2003 64bit

Note: For the 64bit versions of Windows XP and Windows 2003 there is no Novell Client available. Consider to upgrade to Windows Vista / 7 / 2008 / 2008 R2 to have a Novell Client available.

Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows (IR5)

This client officially supports 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Vista.

Novell Client for Vista 2.0

This client supports 32 and 64 bit versions of Vista.

(Also, while not officially supported by Novell, the Vista 2 Novell Client installs and works well under Windows 7 Beta, Build 7000, and later.)

Novell Client for Vista 1.0

This client supports 32 and 64 bit versions of Vista.

Novell Client 4.91 SP5 IR1 for Windows XP/2003 (the latest client for XP/2003)

Note that only 32 bit versions of Windows are supported by this client. There is also a POST fix to replace the nwgina.dll as a seperate download. (491psp5ir1_nwgina.zip)

Novell Client 4.91 SP5 for Windows XP/2003

Note that only 32 bit versions of Windows are supported by this client.

Note: In Novell Client 4.91 SP5 the NWFILTER.SYS is broken, so you must apply at least the patch NWFILTER 2

Novell Client 4.91 SP4 for Windows XP/2003

Note that only 32 bit versions of Windows are supported by this client.

Note that there is no separate SP4 download for the 4.91 client. You can only get SP4 by downloading the full client with SP4 included.

Novell Client 4.91 SP3 for Windows XP/2003

Note this download is from the Cool Solutions website.

Older versions of the 4.91 client are now longer available for download from Novell's web site. However patches are still available:

Novell Client 4.90 for Windows NT/2000/XP (The latest client for Windows 2000)

It is recommended that you use the 4.91 client instead. However if you really insist, you can still get the 4.90 SP1a client here. Patches for the 4.90 client are available here.

Novell Client 4.83 for Windows NT/2000/XP

The 4.83 client is still useful because if offers better compatibility with NetWare versions older than 5.0 and also works better on NT 4. The 4.83 SP2 client can be found here, and patches for it can be found here.

Legacy clients

For those who still have older client operating systems, the following legacy clients are still available for download:
