Well, the votes are in:

(4) said that they are using it and like it.
(5) said that they evaluated it and didn't like it
    and they choose to go with a NFS solution.

Some other information included:

NetWare Sunlink is not a product under Solaris 2.X because
Sun is going to be able to run the IPX protocol WHEN 2.4
is released.

Some people said that it ran like a pig under Solaris 1.1
and others said that it runs great. (?????????)

Thanks are in order to: (Raymond Trzaska) (Larry Chin) (Manfred Liebchen) (BRS Administrator)

Thanks for responding!!!!!!!!!!
