Novell's server software, NetWare 5.x, will support Macintosh TCP/IP, the company has announced. Currently, Macs must access NetWare 5.x via Prosoft.

Product manager Paul Abbott said Novell was seeing increased demand for Mac TCP/IP Internet protocol support, especially from the publishing industry and education markets.

Novell did not say whether the Macintosh file and print support will ship free with NetWare 5.1 - which will be released later this year - or whether it will be priced separately.
