Logging Out

When you have finished your session on NetWare, you log out. Once you log out, NetWare no longer recognizes you as a user, and you are not able to use NetWare commands any longer. To use these commands, you must login again. To log out, you give the command LOGOUT at the command prompt.

NetWare displays a message giving your login id, the time and date when you last logged in, and the time and date of the logout.

It is essential to logout once you have finished working on NetWare or, for that matter, on any network. If you do not log out, your user area is still accessible and someone might tamper with or delete your files.
