Random information on the term “NEST”:

Novell Embedded Systems Technology (NEST) was a series of APIs, data formats and network protocol stacks written in a highly portable fashion intended to be used in embedded systems. The idea was to allow various small devices to access Novell NetWare services, provide such services, or use NetWare’s IPX protocol as a communications system (and later also TCP/IP). Novell referred to this concept as “Extended Networks”, and when the effort was launched they boasted that they wanted to see one billion devices connected to NetWare networks by year 2000. NEST was launched in mid-1994 countering Microsoft’s similar Microsoft at Work efforts, which had been launched in 1993.

Neither technology saw much third-party support, although some of NEST’s code was apparently re-used in Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS), and thus iPrint.

NEST consisted primarily of a Novell protocol driver stack implemented in ANSI C. The stack included drivers for then-popular networking hardware, including Ethernet, TokenRing, AppleTalk (actually referring to LocalTalk, a common confusion) and ISDN, as well as higher-level modules for protocols such as Novell’s own IPX, and AppleTalk, and later TCP/IP.
