You may receive the following error message:
Error 172 (no server assigned) the request is not seen on the network.
This error message can occur if you are using both the Banyan VINES 32-bitnetwork client and the Novell NetWare real-mode NetX client. The NetXclient is being loaded before the Banyan 32-bit client. This causes BanyanVINES to try to operate over an IPXODI protocol stack, which it is notdesigned to do.
To prevent this issue from occurring, do not use Banyan's 32-bit VINESclient with Novell's real-mode NetX client.
