Gateway Services for NetWare installs as a service on a Windows NT server and translates requests for Windows NT resources into NetWare requests. At a lower level, GSNW is translating SMB (Server Message Block) protocol requests into NCP (NetWare Core Protocol) requests. GSNW

allows multiple Windows NT clients to connect through a Windows NT server to NetWare servers using only Windows NT client software and protocols. Figure 5.7 illustrates this arrangement.


Gateway Services for NetWare (GSNW) operation



GSNW has a relatively undocumented feature: Any number of Windows NT clients can connect to NetWare resources through GSNW and use only one license on the NetWare server being accessed. With this capability, it is theoretically possible to build a network of mostly NetWare servers, but license all of them for five users or fewer. Novell is understandably peeved. However, GSNW performance is very poor in this application. Microsoft doesn’t recommend GSNW for high NetWare traffic environments.

Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) is probably the simplest of all the software, but it requires the most overhead to implement. You must install CSNW on every Windows NT Workstation computer that needs access to NetWare resources.

Additionally, all users who want to access NetWare resources need user accounts and rights on the NetWare servers they access.

File and Print Services for NetWare (FPNW) is really a method for providing files and printers hosted by Windows NT Server to Novell clients. When installed and configured on a Windows NT server, this service makes a Windows NT server look like a NetWare server to Novell clients. This service is good when you have a small number of NT servers and a large number of NetWare servers.
