Navision 3.53 - connecting via Netbios

PC connceted to netware 3.12 contains database. New workstation with win98 with
microsofts bindery-client want to connect,
but responds back it cannot connect without
netbios (error 20 I think)
Any place to read about connecting rules/problems, or any help at all ???.
Thanks in advance
  • It's a long time ago, but from the things i remember:
    Did you try to start with parameter NETTYPE=TCP (or NETTYPE=NETB).

    To view all possible parameters start your client with "NAVI.EXE ?".

    Hope this is what you are looking for.

  • Also the NetBios needs to be the default nettype.

    (Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Network -> Select the NetBios protocol -> Proberties -> Advanced Tab -> Make sure Default is checked.

    I would acturally suggest that you delete the TCP/IP protocol. if You still are having the problem.

    Somehow if that were installed. it seems like Microsoft were "Helping" people to select TCP/IP wether they want it or not.

    hmm - Can't help getting a little sentimeltal when working on the good old blue navision ;-)

  • Also - When running Windows 98 - You ought to run NAVIN.EXE!
