Using Long-Filename on a Netware Server

You have connected to a Netware server from Windows95 or NT4, but now have to find out, that your nice "long Filenames" are still only stored as the old 8.3 names on the Novell-Netware server ?

Again, the "
Windows95 Resource Kit" offers the solution:

That support for "Long Filenames" was originally developed for supporting OS/2, but works also fine with Windows95 and NT4.

Update for Novell Intranetware/Netware 4.11 Servers
Novell has adjusted to the situation in the market:
OS/2 (for which the Long-Filenames-feature was originally implemented)
was NOT successful as a desktop-operating system !
Windows95/NT systems are using the support for Long-Filenames.
Novell has renamed the Netware-Model (from "OS2.NAM" ) to
(a more neutral name) "LONG.NAM",
so please use now the following commands on the Netware server:

Part of the functionality of "Long-Filenames" is the possibility to store case-sensitive names, i.e. having also lower-case characters are part of a filename. Just make sure, that this is NOT deactivated in the properties of the "Client for Netware Networks":
