This version of the Client supports x86, AMD64 and Intel EM64T CPUs in 64–bit mode (x86-64) on SLED 10 SP1.

The Novell® Client™ for Linux* 2.0 workstation software extends the capabilities of Linux desktops by providing access to NetWare® and Open Enterprise Server (OES). When it is installed on workstations, the Client enables users to enjoy the full range of Novell services such as authentication via Novell’s eDirectory™, network browsing and service resolution, and secure and reliable file system access. The Client supports Novell’s traditional NCP™ protocol.

Version 2.0 of the client also offers integrated one click single sign-on so that you don’t have to do any scripting.

The final version will ship with OES 2.
