Novell NetWare is a Novell network operating system (NOS) that provides transparent remote file access and numerous other distributed network services, including printer sharing and support for various applications, such as electronic mail transfer and database access. NetWare specifies the upper five layers of the OSI reference model and runs on any media access protocol (Layer 2). In addition, NetWare runs on virtually any kind of computer system, from PCs to mainframes. NetWare and its supporting protocols often coexist on the same physical channel with many other popular protocols, including TCP/IP, DECnet and AppleTalk.
