NetWare for Small Business Features

NetWare for Small Business 4.11 comes with all the product updates, enhancements, and features of NetWare 4.11 at a competitive price. Included also are the following:

  • Single-site NDS. This version of NDS, optimized for simple, single-site installations, makes using and managing networks easy, eliminating the need for a full-time network manager.

  • Novell Application Launcher (NAL). NAL takes full advantage of NDS to automate application distribution and management to each desktop.

  • NetWare Multi-protocol Router. This router provides businesses a direct connection to the Internet via modem or dedicated line and enables them to send and receive Internet e-mail from their GroupWise mailbox and also to browse the web.

In addition to the many powerful NetWare features, NetWare for Small Business 4.11 has features not included in NetWare 4.11 to simplify network administration for small businesses. These features include:

  • Novell Easy Administration Tool (NEAT) version 1.1. NEAT simplifies administrative tasks such as adding users, printers, groups, and applications. NEAT guides the administrator with a friendly graphical interface. It manages both GroupWise and the network, allowing the messaging and network systems to remain combined.

  • QuickStart for NEAT version 1.1. QuickStart simplifies the process of adding users, groups, printers, and applications during the initial setup and install.

  • NetWare Connect. This feature provides dial-up connectivity, allowing network users to access the company network anytime from anyplace. This lets users send and receive e-mail and maintain constant communication from even remote locations.

  • QuickFinder Plug-in for Netscape version 1.1. QuickFinder allows users to search documentation using the Netscape browser.

  • Nodal Licensing. NetWare for Small Business' flexible licensing program allows businesses to purchase the exact number of licenses they need (in one-user and five-user packs) and gives each licensed user access to all servers on the network.

  • Network Address Translator (NAT). NAT allows businesses to use one IP address from their Internet Service Provider. This feature provides additional security, as well as address simplification and conservation.

  • Easy Upgrade. As businesses experience growth and need larger networks, NetWare for Small Business offers a smooth and easy upgrade path to other versions of NetWare (NetWare 5, for example).

  • Remote Monitoring and Repair. NetWare for Small Business can enable authorized service technicians or resellers to monitor a business' network remotely and even diagnose and correct most network problems without going on-site. This can represent significant savings in time and money in network management.

  • Add-on Products. NetWare for Small Business allows businesses to take advantage of almost any other Novell product to enhance their network's functionality. For example, businesses could add ManageWise for complete network management functions and BorderManager FastCache to increase the speed at which they access or download files from the Internet.

Bundled Products

NetWare for Small Business 4.11 includes several bundled products not available in the previous release of intraNetWare for Small Business. In particular, Novell's GroupWise 5.2 is included, along with software and promotional software from Netscape, Oracle, and Computer Associates, to provide comprehensive small business networking solutions.

GroupWise 5.2. As Novell's groupware collaboration product for the Internet and intranets, GroupWise 5.2 combines e-mail with a powerful task management tool, scheduler, and calendar. GroupWise was not previously part of the default NetWare server installation, but it NetWare for Small Business 4.11 it is automatically installed.

GroupWise 5.2 offers a number of features to help people communicate more effectively and use their time more efficiently:

  • Integrated Desktop. This provides a single, customizable environment for accessing, organizing, managing, profiling, sharing, and communicating information.

  • Universal Mailbox. This forms a convenient, central environment that allows people to send, receive, and mange multiple types of information, such as e-mail, faxes, Internet messages, appointments, tasks, documents, and work flows. They can use the Mailbox whether they are connected directly to the network or dialing in from a remote location.

  • Internet/Intranet Integration. This integration simplifies Internet/Intranet access because all URLs, Internet e-mail addresses, and FTP filenames included in the subject or message body of any GroupWise item are automatically detected, highlighted in the subject or message body, and hyperlinked to the user's default browser, Send Mail view, or FTP application.

  • E-mail Client. The GroupWise client software offers a variety of features for working with e-mail messages, including tracking of outbound messages; recalling outbound messages; carbon copies and blind copies; attachments and document references; integrated speller, thesaurus, and QuickConnect composition coach. It also lets users convert information types, for example, converting an e-mail message to a task or appointment to flag it for follow up or for a meeting.

  • Work-In-Progress. This feature lets users track appointments and to-do lists, maintain personal address books, and manage a "work-in-progress" folder that holds unfinished items until they have been completed.

  • Group Calendaring and Scheduling. This feature automates the scheduling of meetings by storing personal and group calendars and searching calendars to find common times when everyone who needs to attend a meeting is available. You can even schedule resources such as conference rooms and video equipment.

  • Replicated Shared Folders. This feature lets users provide others with access to specific folders for workgroup and collaborative interaction, including group document editing.

  • Conversation Place. This feature integrates workstations with an organization's PBX system via TSAPI or through a TAPI modem or interface card. Computer-based telephone conversations and conference calls are possible, and users can add and remove participants, transfer individuals and share documents during these calls.

  • Document Management Services (DMS). DMS includes check-in/check-out (for single documents, single folders, multiple folders, selected documents from a single folder, or selected documents from multiple folders), concurrency control and versioning. So a business can easily manage the document creation process and identify which version of a document is the most recent one.

Connecting Your Network to the Internet

NetWare for Small Business includes routing software that provides access to the Internet. Small businesses can share a modem with the users on their network to make a dial-up connection to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) of their choice, enabling them to browse the World Wide Web and send and receive Internet E-mail from their GroupWise mailbox. The following instructions assume the customer will use a dial-up connection.

To configure Internet access you must first get an account with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) of your choice. You need to obtain the following items of information from your ISP before you begin configuring the Internet access software:

  • Dial-up access phone number to the ISP for your modem connection

  • User ID and password for your account with the ISP

  • IP address of your ISP

You also need to know the following information about your modem:

  • Modem Type

  • Modem Speed

  • Modem Interrupt

  • COM Port that your modem is using

After an account is set up and the necessary information is received from the ISP, you are ready to configure the Internet access software. The followings sections describe how to do this from your NetWare for Small Business server. You can perform these steps any time after the NetWare for Small Business CD has been used to install the server.
