NetWare client

(redirected from NetWare shell)

NetWare client

A desktop machine in a NetWare network, which used proprietary communications protocols to access a NetWare server (see IPX and NCP). Known as a "NetWare shell," Microsoft and Novell provided client software for Windows. Unix and Mac NetWare shells were also available. As of NetWare 5 in 1998, NetWare natively supported TCP/IP, the Internet protocol that was becoming the global standard. See NetWare and NetWare 6.
