Every DOSEMU session has to connect to a Novell (IPX based) server. I
used 'direct networking' on the old version and it worked well, so I'd
like to keep using it.

And as far as I know IPX requires root privileges.

When users login (via telnet over a SSH tunnel) DOS is automatically
started for them, they're automatically logged into Novell server and
their application start automatically.
