   As you know everything can be broken and NOVELL  NETWARE  is  not  an
exeption. But the time for cracking something is defined by the time  of
geting information about it. The more information you will find the more
easy it will be for you to crack.
   In this documentation we'd like to tell you some sence  about  NOVELL
net and about cracking it.
This document is only for studying.In this document only the common 
principles are discussed. If you still wonna hack you should know IPX 
and NCP (netware core protocol) and think little for

   Excuse our English - it is not our first language. :)

                     1.Exchange packets principle.

   First of all the server and workstations send packets to  each  other
accoding to the special protocol known as Netware Core Protocol ( NCP  )
based on the IPX protocol. Every packet is sighed with  its  own  number
from 0 to 255 stored in one  byte.  This  field  is  known  as  Sequence
Number. Look at the packet structure.

------------------------ Phisical packet header ------------------------

                                     will recive the packet
SenderAddress       6      Normal    The address of the workstation that
                                     sends the packet

 The initiater is the workstation. It sends  a  requirement  packet  and
waits for an answer. The server receives the packet , check the  station
address , the subnet address ,  the  socket  ,  the  conection  and  the
sequence number. If something is wrong the server reject  to  accomplish
the requirement operation and send the answer.

                     2.The common idea of cracking.

    As was said above the server checks all the packets it receives. But
if to form the packet like the other workstation, set its  addresses  in
the packet , set its connection number and so on and then to send it  to
the net the server will never know whos request it has  accomplished.The
main difficulty is the  sequens  number  because  others fields  can  be
obtained from the server with the usual functions. To make  sure  server
the server has accomplish the operation you should send the same  packet
255 times with different sequens numbers.

                    3.How to get supervisor's rights

    You can  get  supervisor's  rights  just  having  become  supervisor
equevalent. There is a function known  as  EQUIVALENT  TO  ME  that  you
should send in name of supervisor. Look at the packet structure.

        The packet structure with function EQUIVALENT TO ME

     !!! - two last strings - your full network name (like 3107.inf.tsu)

   To get supervisor's address,subnet,socket,ID,conection number you can
via the function Get Connection Information. Look below.

                       Get Connection Information
  ds:si=> ConReq
            dw 2           - length
            db 16h         - subfunction
            db ?           - Conection Number
  es:di=> ConRep
            dw 62          - length
            db 4 dup (?)   
            dw ?           - User Type
            db 56 duo (?)  - User login name
  int 21h

    You can send the packet via IPX driver (function 9) but in this case
you have not access to the phisical packet header. I  guess  the  server
does not check the sender address there.
    You can also send the packet via LSL driver but it is too difficult.
    The simplest way is to send the packet via ODIPKT driver (  function
4 ).

                         Send Packet Via Odipkt

      int 60h
      C=1 if error

                    The procedure of sending packets

Send            proc
                mov SequenceNumber,0
@@1:            push ds
                push es
                mov ah,4
                mov cx,Length
                mov si,offset Packet
                int 60h
                pop es
                pop ds
                jc @@1
                mov cx,1000
                loop $-2
                dec SequenceNumber
                jne @@1
Send            endp


    After answering a  packet  a  server  waits  for  another  one  with
incremented sequence number. If you try to squees your packet  into  the
work between the server and the workstation then there will  appear  the
dissequence of packets and the user will hang up. But you can avoid this
by sending 256*255 packets more.


    If you realize the program accoding to this documentation  you  will
get big rights. I hope you will not harm anybody. Moreover,do not forget
that all what you do is fixed on the server.Clear off the server statis-
tic. Don't forget about dates and file owners.
