Controlling "Workstation Only" functionality during login
Novell Client 4.9 for Windows NT/2000/XP
There are several registry settings that control the Workstation Only functionality.
If Novell Authentication is disabled, then "Workstation Only" is all that will be available.
One can also elect to not even display the "Workstation Only" checkbox, so that the user MUST log into NetWare.
It may be that the administrator does not want the "Workstation Only" checkbox displayed, but does want the user to be able to login to the workstation only in the event that the network is not available. This is made possible by setting the "Workstation Only Fallback" flag. If it is set, and the Network authentication fails, and the "Workstation Only" flag is clear, Login will still ask you if you want to login "Workstation Only". To enable this functionality, set this registry flag:
DWORD: Workstation Only Fallback (default 0)
0=Don't allow Workstation Only login in case of network authentication failure.
If this flag is set to 0, the Workstation Only checkbox will not be sticky, but will be reset on every login.
The actual state of the Workstation Only checkbox will be dependent on the following flag:
Finally, there is another registry flag that tells whether the user logged in locally or to NDS.
