LEAP/Novell Problems

I'm having problems here at work with one of our Aironet cards. The LEAP authentication is appearing AFTER the Novell login. Predictably, I can only login as a workstation until the LEAP screen is completed, whereupon I have to login to Novell again. What's odd about this 3rd login is that I then have to provide not only a TREE & CONTEXT, but also a SERVER to get into the network drives.


Gateway M460 Notebook/WinXPSP2

Aironet 350B Card/ACU6.0

Novell Netware 4.91SP2

Novell Zenworks 7


1) LEAP authentication occurring out of sequence with Novell

2) Aironet card unable to detect and negotiate server config

Re: LEAP/Novell Problems

This is an issue I have fought with because of the use Novell. You have to login to the workstation first, then the wireless, then Novell. Novell is expecting a network connection to talk to the Tree, if it is not there, you won't be able to connect. There is a product that Novell has, I can't remember the name, but it is similar to single sign-on. I haven't had a chance to play with it, but according to my Novell engineers, it should work. It basically cache's all the creditentials, and then logs in.

I use PEAP-GTC to authenticate my users against the Novell LDAP. I have an ACS to do this.

Hope that helps.
