NetWare Web Access is a software component that allows NetWare administrators to easily set up a Web-based portal to allow users to access network resources from a Web browser. Users no longer need a NetWare or VPN client to access their resources. Access can be initiated from any computer that has a Web compliant browser.
NetWare Web Access occurs through a Java servlet or Java application instantiated by Novell Portal Services (NPS). Customized content is provided through "gadgets". The gadget provides a window to specific content on a page in the portal.
