    It's not clear to me what you're asking. ASP.NET will run on Windows 2000 Server/IIS 5. As long as your network supports TCP/IP, the clients will be able to connect to the web server.

    Sorry!! I'll explain the environment in detail: The network OS is Novell Netware 6.0. All users are authenticated using netware. A windows server 2000 with IIS 5.0 and sql server is attached to this network. Once a user logs into network (authenticated by netware) user can access the SQL server. All clients workstation are having win xp/2000 as os. What I specifically needs to know is if a develop an application under asp.net and deployed will it work or not. Does Microsoft have any information on this? My client likes to have a definite assurance that it'll work. Thanks again for your invaluable time. Dayni

    your asp.net will still under IIS server, I don't see anything specil as per netware environment, except if you planning to use netware for user validation and etc. but then again there will be not much different. It is all depend on your requirements and design.

    Hey~ I wrote a few articles regarding this back in the day. This was when Netware 6 was just released but I am assuming the client hasn't changed much. Yes, this should be doable and the instructions are setup in this article **if** you are using anonymous authentication. You will also have to use Basci for any "auth" you might want so the pass-through can be done. Here they are - have fun... 271228 IIS 5.0: Unable to Obtain Data from Access Database Residing on Netware http://support.microsoft.com/?id=271228 271459 IIS 4.0: Unable to Extract Data from Access Database on Netware 5 Server http://support.microsoft.com/?id=271459 If you are just accessing files, just ignore the part about getting to a ASP page that has database connections. The principle is the same. Thanks, ~Chris (MSFT) Web Platform Supportability Lead
