# NCP Filesystem configuration
config NCP_FS
tristate "NCP file system support (to mount NetWare volumes)"
depends on IPX!=n || INET
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
<file:Documentation/filesystems/ncpfs.txt> in the kernel source and
the IPX-HOWTO from <>.
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 <>.
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.
bool "Packet signatures"
depends on NCP_FS
NCP allows packets to be signed for stronger security. If you want
security, say Y. Normal users can leave it off. To be able to use
packet signing you must use ncpfs > 2.0.12.
bool "Proprietary file locking"
depends on NCP_FS
Allows locking of records on remote volumes. Say N unless you have
special applications which are able to utilize this locking scheme.
bool "Clear remove/delete inhibit when needed"
depends on NCP_FS
Allows manipulation of files flagged as Delete or Rename Inhibit.
To use this feature you must mount volumes with the ncpmount
parameter "-s" (ncpfs-2.0.12 and newer). Say Y unless you are not
mounting volumes with -f 444.
bool "Use NFS namespace if available"
depends on NCP_FS
Allows you to utilize NFS namespace on NetWare servers. It brings
you case sensitive filenames. Say Y. You can disable it at
mount-time with the `-N nfs' parameter of ncpmount.
config NCPFS_OS2_NS
bool "Use LONG (OS/2) namespace if available"
depends on NCP_FS
Allows you to utilize OS2/LONG namespace on NetWare servers.
Filenames in this namespace are limited to 255 characters, they are
case insensitive, and case in names is preserved. Say Y. You can
disable it at mount time with the -N os2 parameter of ncpmount.
bool "Lowercase DOS filenames"
depends on NCP_FS
If you say Y here, every filename on a NetWare server volume using
the OS2/LONG namespace and created under DOS or on a volume using
DOS namespace will be converted to lowercase characters.
Saying N here will give you these filenames in uppercase.
This is only a cosmetic option since the OS2/LONG namespace is case
insensitive. The only major reason for this option is backward
compatibility when moving from DOS to OS2/LONG namespace support.
Long filenames (created by Win95) will not be affected.
This option does not solve the problem that filenames appear
differently under Linux and under Windows, since Windows does an
additional conversions on the client side. You can achieve similar
effects by saying Y to "Allow using of Native Language Support"
config NCPFS_NLS
bool "Use Native Language Support"
depends on NCP_FS
select NLS
Allows you to use codepages and I/O charsets for file name
translation between the server file system and input/output. This
may be useful, if you want to access the server with other operating
systems, e.g. Windows 95. See also NLS for more Information.
To select codepages and I/O charsets use ncpfs- or newer.
bool "Enable symbolic links and execute flags"
depends on NCP_FS
This enables the use of symbolic links and an execute permission
bit on NCPFS. The file server need not have long name space or NFS
name space loaded for these to work.
To use the new attributes, it is recommended to use the flags
'-f 600 -d 755' on the ncpmount command line.
