CONFIG_NCP_FS: NCP file system support (to mount NetWare volumes)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_NCP_FS has multiple definitions:

NCP file system support (to mount NetWare volumes) found in fs/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_NCP_FS:

Help text

NCP (NetWare Core Protocol) is a protocol that runs over IPX and is used by Novell NetWare clients to talk to file servers. It is to IPX what NFS is to TCP/IP, if that helps. Saying Y here allows you to mount NetWare file server volumes and to access them just like any other Unix directory. For details, please read the file Documentation/filesystems/ncpfs.txt in the kernel source and the IPX-HOWTO from http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto.

You do not have to say Y here if you want your Linux box to act as a file *server* for Novell NetWare clients.

General information about how to connect Linux, Windows machines and Macs is on the WWW at http://www.eats.com/linux_mac_win.html.

To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ncpfs. Say N unless you are connected to a Novell network.
