The Client Login

After the Novell client has been installed, you can view and set login options from the Novell Login by clicking the Advanced button, as shown in Figure 3.6.

The NDS tab, as shown in Figure 3.6, enables you to specify the eDirectory tree, name context, and server to use during login. All users should specify their eDirectory tree and name context. A server is not generally required, but must be specified when connecting to a NetWare 3 server or when you are trying to log in to a specific server.

Script Tab

The Script tab (see Figure 3.7) is used to manage the execution of login scripts. It enables you to specify whether to run scripts, whether to display the login results window (and close it automatically), and which profile and user login scripts to execute. The Variables button enables you to specify values for any script variables that might be included in the login scripts.

Dial-up Tab

The Dial-up tab (see Figure 3.8) is used only when a user is connecting to the network via a modem connection. It enables you to configure a client to dial in to the network automatically whenever a user attempts to log in. The Dial-up tab taps into the Windows Dial-Up Networking information. You can select a dialing entry from the Windows phone book and a Windows dialing location profile. This option is used only rarely.

NMAS tab (see Figure 3.9) is used to configure the authentication-related features of Novell Modular Authentication Services (NMAS). For more information on NMAS, see Chapter 7.
