I suggest you seriously learn and understand how to protect a network and what is and is not secure. In the end you are responsible, if you cannot protect yourself or your firm.
Do you research here: http://support.novell.com/
Im not trying to tell you off lol ;) just making a suggestion.

Good Luck,

Olie :)

P.S We all have to learn....unfortunately...

One of the most valuble learning tools at your disposal is a search engine. One of the best around is Google (http://www.google.com) . It should probably be a starting point for most inquiries of this nature.

This search from Google brings up alot of interesting material......

search results (http://tinyurl.com/2n3s)

Many of the pages talk about specific vulnerabilities.....there is even one that lists many of them (but no defenses :()

http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Lab/7378/novell2.htm

In general we are not in the habit of passing out homework answers, because that isn't really doing anyone a favor. You don't learn all you should and in the area of security it is much better to find out as much as you can without having to rely on someone else's answers (often the developer's site is a gold mine of info......)

Now if you had stated something like...

"I have an assignment and I need to find 3 Novell vulnerablities and defenses for them. I have done a google search and come up with most of what I need, but I can't find any way to defend against this (a particular form of attack)."

Then many more members would be much more likely to offer assistance, seeing that you really have tried on your own to at least begin the process. You would also be showing that you want to learn, not have the answers handed to you...

Flying off and attacking another member just because you did not like his answer is not the way to win any friends, either.
