CSNW registry settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been wrestling with CSNW (Client Services for Netware) for a few days on 2K and XP, trying to tune it to "play nice" with some of the old Client 32 installations, and I've found that this is like pulling teeth!  This does NOT like to be messed with!

    In trying to find where tuning can be done to the Netware redirector, I've pulled-apart nwrdr.sys and found what appears to be a comprehensive list of registry entries that can be used to more finely tune the client.  I've been able to find documentation for some of these, but some are completely undocumented.  If anyone can help fill-in the gaps, it would be very appreciated!
