Goal

Is it possible to stop the Novell login screen?

Fact

A customer wants to use Citrix on W2K for remote access to their network. They want to stop the Novell Login appearing and allow the users that need it to select to login afterwards.

Is it possible to stop the Novell login screen? How?

Fix

Add the following Registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Network Provider\Initial Login

All of the keys except "Initial Login" should already exist.

Add a new String Value and make its name be:
Login When NWGina Not Loaded

Make the Value Data be:
No

Cause

 When MSGina is used for initial authentication, the Novell Client should check this registry key before putting up the Login dialog.  If the value data is "No", the Novell Client will NOT put up the Novell Login dialog.  If the value data is anything else, or the value does not exist, the Novell client WILL put up the Novell Login dialog (the default behavior).
