I have 2.2.6 installed and mounting /home/user to two servers from netware. It
works pretty well except the first time for some applications like SSH or any
application that looks for a Unix account. When the unix account exist it works.
I used the howto at criticalcontrol. Only drawback with CC howto is that
everything is mounted 755 thus making everything in /home executable by default.
You can fix this by editing the code.
You can pass -o filemode=XXX (and -o dirmode=XXX) to ncpmount. To do it
from pam_ncp you'll have to modify sources, unfortunately, ncpmount options
are hardcoded in sources. In latest version it is
argv[i++] = "-o";
argv[i++] = "symlinks,exec";
Just change second line to contain all wanted options, like
or whatever default file & directory modes you prefer.
Novell is readying a client to be released shortly but i wouldnt wait for them.
Try ncpfs out.
