     Cyrus Patel has released the NW 3.x/4.x client v2.6403.355.
     
     The 10 Jan 1998 version of the client appears to be available at 
     http://www.distributed.net/rc5/rc5v2-clients.html
     as
     
ftp://ftp.distributed.net/pub/rc5-64/v2.6403/rc56403-355-netware-x86.zip
     
     This version requently checks to see if the TCP/IP NLMs have been 
     loaded.  It can run either with or without NETDB.NLM loaded and will 
     use internal functions for DNS resolution should NETDB not be 
loaded.  
     Reliance on static Watcom libraries has been removed resulting in a 
     smaller loadable module.  Reliance on A3112.NLM has been removed.  
     Reliance on MATHLIBC.NLM has been lessened but not completely 
removed. 
      BUFF files have been found to be compatible with Win95, Win3x, and 
     DOS BUFF files; but other compatibilities are unknown (to this 
     poster).  Various other problems have also been resolved.  The 
client 
     has been tested in a production environment for several days without 
     perceptible adverse effects.
     
     Please feel free to download and test this client.

     nwreadme.txt
        text file with orientation and history on the NW client

        the client NLM
