NAL appears to take longer to read applications across a WAN link than it does over a LAN link.
Other stream files in the same packet trace open quickly.
NAL appears to optimize the read of stream files over LAN links.
The Novell Client handled stream files differently on a WAN vs. a LAN.
Fixed in the Novell Client 4.83 SP2 for Windows NT/2000/XP.
The Novell Client 4.83 SP2 for Windows NT/2000/XP is available from the Novell Support site as NC483SP2.EXE (http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/2965465.htm).
An overlaid package containing the Novell Client 4.83 for Windows NT/2000/XP including the SP2 updates will also be available from the Novell Product Downloads (http://download.novell.com/).
Fixed in the Novell Client 3.32 SP2 for Windows 95/98.
The Novell Client 3.32 SP2 for Windows 95/98 is available from the Novell Support site as NC332SP2.EXE (http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/2965469.htm).
An overlaid package containing the Novell Client 3.32 for Windows 95/98 including the SP2 updates will also be available from the Novell Product Downloads (http://download.novell.com/).
Fixed for ZENworks for Desktops 3.x and 4.x in the following Novell Client files:
For NT/W2K/XP running the 4.83 SP1 client, this is fixed in an updated NWFS.SYS dated 06Aug2002 or later.
In all cases, the registry key
"Cache Stream Files"=dword:00000001 must be set for the fix to become active.
For 95/98 running the 3.32 SP1 client, this is fixed in an updated CLIENT32.NLM dated 16Aug2002 or later.
Also, the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Network\Novell\System Config\NetWare DOS Requester\Cache Stream Files must be added, with the value set to "1."
